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.

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.
