Liked: I appreciated that the owner worked at hostel and was available to discuss options. He also spearheaded an impromtu BBQ. To class this place!

Disliked: The location is a bit away from Centro, but this is minor as there are ample vans and buses heading in, also, it helps keep the costs down.

Liked: Very friendly and helpful staff!!! The atmosphere is very laid-back and relaxing. Hernan, the owner, is very accomodating, especially for people who travel alone and are integrated easily into the family-style circle of guests by joining the dinners he himself or other travelers organize and prepare (which were great, by the way!)! Located right next to the lagoon with a great view and terrace, you can reach the center by "van" for 2,50R$ in about 20min (with heavy traffic). But one of the major beaches "Geriba" is pretty close and spacious and beautiful and Hernan just walked us there to spend an afternoon with us. Breakfast is also pretty cool including white bread buns, honey, ham & cheese, tomatoe slices, sandwich-maker, papayas, bananas, milk, coffee and melon juice. The hostal parties are also quite enjoyable. Absolutely recommendable!

Liked: A great place to stay, with an even better atmosphere. Whether you are a couple, or just a backpacker, and you are looking for a hostel, I don't think it can get much better than this. A charming appeal, a picturesque view, a home a thousand miles away. The property isn't in the centre, but that really is no issue at all, it is in fact better. Perfect if you want a quiet night away from the noise, but if you want to go out, well it's a 5 minute journey by bus, which runs all night, very frequent, and very cheap. There are buses 2 minutes from the property. All you could want from a hostel. And then a great host too.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Really good hostel, the owner Rennon was lovely our bus was late and we had trouble finding the hostel and he came and met us, gave us lots of advice and hes great to chat to. Breakfast was good and freshly made juice, we even woke late one morning as we had been travelling for a while and were tired and Rennon had saved us some! Nice spacious rooms, clean and safe lockers and really impressed with the security system, very safe!

Disliked: Not much but when the shutters were open on the bedroom people could see straight in, i think curtains would go a long way here.

Liked: The staff were absolutely brilliant, organising nights out with people in the hostel and evening meals with allthe people in the hostel that were up for it. Well located round the corner from a couple of supermarkets. It's not in the centre, but close to Geriba one of the best beaches in Buzios and it's very cheap to get a combi into the town.

Disliked: Only 2 showers and 2 toilets for a 12 person dorm.

Liked: I was upgraded to a 6 bed dorm which had air conditioning and private bathroom. You could take beach equipment out of the hostel for free i.e snorkel, surfboard. It had a really cool socializing area with a big TV and a nice roof terrace you could sit out on. the kitchen was a good size so a few people could cook at once and everything in there was very clean. Breakfast was also really good.

Liked: The balcony and lounge room were what made this hostel great for me. The ceilings are super high and the lounge has huge windows which allows plenty of natural light in allows a nice breeze to come through from the ocean. Not stuffed up, stale air and super congested like other hostels I have experienced in parts of Brazil. You can eat inside or outside which is nice and everyone enjoys drinking together on the balcony at night which is sweet for meeting people and socializing. The kitchen is big as well with plenty of space to move around and do what you need within reason. No cartwheels though! ; ) I should also mention that the staff are so super lovely. They are welcoming and fun and open to suggestions and making everyone feel good about being in Buzios. Best hostel choice I have made in Brazil so far!

Disliked: I guess my only concern would be the amount of showers they have but somehow it seemed to work out well and everyone was respectful of the amount of time they should use to get cleaned up. It's still a new hostel so maybe in the future they will install an extra shower somewhere.
