Liked: The bar area is really nice and the Internet connection is free and really fast. They provided a very nice breakfast.

Disliked: The staff were unhelpful and clueless. Upon arrival they could not find our reservation and had no idea whether the two beds where we ended up staying were free or not. At checkout they actually had no idea how much we had to pay and asked us whether we knew which was strange. Only when we insisted later in the day did they come up with a price. In general they were very unhelpful and had no idea about bus times, location and that free pickup.

Liked: These guys have great atmosphere here! This is where you can feel the spirit of Brazil. This place is all made of wood, it has several floors of outside patches from where you can see the sunrise, enjoy your drinks or food. Some one said they have bad pizzas - wrong! Pizzas are pretty much worth the price! But the atmosphere and design make this place, the best in Paraty.

Liked: Cheap, decent breakfast. Beach near is ok.

Disliked: Little bit odd, if you stay in a private room you have to walk through 2 dorms to get to the bathroom - wouldn't be much fun if the rooms were full! Bit of a distance from the main town and the beach bars close early. The bar on site stays open late and had live music on when we were there so it didnt matter too much.

Liked: Good location on beach, but there is a beach much closer to town with hostels overlooking it. Good bar with good food, if a little overpriced. Good extras like free pickup, kayaks etc. Hostel is clean.

Disliked: Packed in to very dark and dingy dorms with terrible facilities. The dorm door didnt shut and was wide open all night leaving our bags unsecured, the dorm full of mosquitos and freezing cold. When we asked the unfriendly staff, they acted like we were trying to get an unpgrade for free! This is a very noisy hostel, there are beach parties until 6am, the bar plays very loud music outside your window until midnight and even the night staff were skyping at 2am on the top of ther voices. Dont expect any peace!!!

Liked: The hostel is a quite nice place to relax (visited in off season) and has a good restaurant, where you can have delicious food for diner. You can cook in the outdoor kitchen as well, if you don´t care about the mosquitos in the evening. The breakfast was good and like others in brazilian hostels.

Disliked: We stayed in a private room. But to get in to it, you have to pass the dorm rooms. In fact that isn´t really private und can be annoying for the guys who sleep in the rooms you have to pass. Aditionally our bed had bed bucks and that isn´t raelly good to feel comfortable.

13 December 2009 evelyn would recommend this property

Liked: Very freindly staff and the hostel is very clean and is directly opposite the beach. The included breakfast is lovely, especially the cake!!only negative is the distance from the centre~a free return shuttle bus maybe twice a day at specific times to the supermaket or centre would be an amazing idea, especially since it rained when we were there. Otherwise great place to stay~thank you :)
