Liked: Cool location - although it is a bit of a trek to get there, it is beach front and has access to boat jetty nearby for day trip pick ups.

Disliked: The room is very cramped - they have jammed to many bunks in considering the size of the room. They changed the dinner price after we had signed up.

Liked: It was a great location and we had the best dorm with a balcony overlooking the bay and lots of space.

Disliked: It felt less homely than some other hostels we'd stayed in, however it was clean and full of friendly people; it was just quite a backpacker run.

Liked: Great atmosphere, nice people, relaxed and enjoyable. Lots of events organised by the hostel for good prices... bbq´s so you can meet everyone at the hostel..kayaking, snorkeling.

Disliked: If the weather is bad there is really not much to do apart from watching tv, but that is the case generally on ilha grande, the hostel is lovely and you can spend the days talking to fellow travellers.

Liked: I'd say it's a nice place to meet people and they have sort of "parties" going on every night. Not very clean though, they give you used linnen and its really hard to eat your breakfast cause it's covered with little bees. Staff is ok but the bartender kikito is really nice and can give you nice hints about the island. So, if you wanna party and don't really care about the rest I'd recomend it.

Customer review

21 April 2010

Liked: It was in a good location, however, although the staff were quite friendly, it did take 50 minutes to check in so not so efficient. The island is beautiful & the tours on offer at the hostel were good but the same tours were cheaper in travel agents. Everyone in my dorm seemed to be paying a different price for accomodation which seemed a little unfair. The rates on hostelbookers are not in Rias so I think they get away with charging what they like.

Thomas Craig

28 January 2010 Thomas would recommend this property

Liked: Make sure you book in Reais and not dollars.... Their exchenge rate is way off, ended up paying almost 10 reais more than what, according to the hostelbookers website told me, According to the website, I was supposed to pay 17 USD a night, which is about 32 raies (according the xe.com), and ended up paying 40 reais per night, so I lost 16 reais for the two nights I was there. This sucked cause I am a broke backpacker. But anyways, the place was nice, cool parties.

Liked: didnt have our booking details when we arrived, even though we booked on hostelbookers. Apparently the central Che Legarto booking office is crap at actually letting the individual hostels know they have a booking...just worth noting, luckily they had a bed for us.Staff, as with most Brasilian hostel staff it seems, are really uninterested in actually being helpful, but they are nice all the same. Good atmosphere but not quiet. If you want a good nights sleep pick a Pousada as this is definitely a party place. Not a bad place, just not a place to stay if you want to chill out.

Liked: Hostel was awesome, great place to meet people, funky programs every night with BBQ's on the go, always decent tunes banging out throughout the day, staff were really helpful and extremely hot. We stayed in a private room which was upto the spec of a decent hotel, amazing view over the bay. The bed though was one of the most uncomfortable things I have slept on in my lfe, good job they had those decorative cushions on the go, the additional padding was needed against the springs poking me in the back! All in all, defo would go back to! Forgot to mention the breakfast... what a feast!
