29 September 2010 Natalie would recommend this property

Liked: We really enjoyed our stay at Aquario hostel despite the rain one day! We were a group of 3 girls and were upgraded to a private room free of charge. The staff were all really helpful and our room was cleaned thoroughly daily. It was a really fun hostel, very sociable, and every night they put on dinner and music, we had reggae one night, samba another night. Would recommend to other travellers who like to socialise and meet people. Also the location is amazing, it is a little bit of a walk from the jetty but the rooms literally open up right onto the beach

Liked: Its convenient for being dropped off by boat and they do a 25 reais all you can eat bbq which really is all you can eat.

Disliked: There is an annoying lady who hassles you constantly to buy the booze cruise boat trip and bbq. This is really a place for young backpackers looking to get drunk more than just chilling out. The shower was cold. Is a bit further round the bay fom the main bit of the town.

Liked: The location and the views from the hostel are amazing...it´s right on the beach and it has it´s own dock where you can take boat trips from. We really enjoyed our stay...If we were to go back to Ilha Grande we probably would go for a cheaper option though however Aquario was very nice.

11 April 2008 Nick would recommend this property

Liked: good balance between party hostel and peaceful place to stay. th hostel is run in conjunction with the one next door which is more of a lively place. aquario is more serene. good to have the balance between the two.fred can be counted on for giving good advice and ideas of things to do. the hostel runs boat trips and BBQs which is a great way to meet fellow backpackers. excellent location. right on the beach. nice to be able to walk home thru the surf along the beach to get home after a long night drinking!
