Liked: Big common area, possibility to have cheap but good joint dinner, good location close to bus station, supermarket and city centre, helpful staff, offer a lot of different activities/trips!

Disliked: If you are looking for a small and quiet hostel this is not the right one. Although it was not too loud at night!

Liked: Really nice hostel with good dinners, tours, and bar. Ideal for meeting up with travellers and good value.

Disliked: You have to hand your key in at reception. Twice we were given back the wrong key (so could easily walk into someone elses room) and theoretically could ask for any room number and the staff would hand the key over. The reception is very busy.

Liked: The hostel cooks cheap n tasty meals everynight. The Jeep tour is awsome!

Disliked: If you like cold showers and no AC in crowded stuffy rooms, no chilling areas unless you want to sit outside with the many mosquitos, and rude unhelpful staff, there your stay here will be well accomodated. However, for the price you pay to stay here, it is not worth it. Its Unwelcoming, dirty and overcrowded.

Liked: Friendly staff. Fantastic dinner offers for an acceptable price. Nice rooms, though the air conditioning was placed directly beside my bed. Very good Caipi's at the bar.

Disliked: Description on how to get to it was (is?) copy & paste from a different hostel. Made me walk to the wrong hostel first.

Liked: Excellent place - made me want to stay in other Che Lagartos (a mistake in Chile and Peru). Excellent atmosphere, one of the most fun places I stayed (even though it rained 24/7). Amazing internet, TV, pool, bar, security. Great place. I overstatyed and they were booked out so they found me a different place in Paraty and helped me move. Really nice efficient staff

Disliked: Its not in the old town? Hard to think of anything not positive!!

Liked: Great hostel, one of the best I have stayed in, rooms are clean and functional, staff are excellent and genuinely friendly, brought us watermelon when we were chilling in the pool. The poolside bar is very lively and great for meeting others. I also did the boat tour for 40 reals which was excellent value. Would strongly recommend.

Disliked: Not enough lockers for every guest, but can store stuff in the offices. Bring your own padlock.

09 March 2012 Alexander would recommend this property

Liked: - Everything was really great at this place. The team is very friendly and helpful and it was more than worth its price! - It was the best hostel we`ve stayed at - Breakfast was very big and delicious with fruits, breads, juices, muesli, coffee, hot milk... - Comfortable and nice social area outside - Private room was definitely higher level than hostel standard: TV, fridge, clima, ventilator, big shower and WC... - Nice offers for dinner and surely worth the money

Disliked: - WCs downstairs were not always very clean, but we had our own bath (private room) which was very clean and great - Internet did sometimes not work, but the team tried their best to solve the (external) problems - Two evenings there was no electricity in the whole block, but the team put candles everywhere and it became a real romantic scenery (we experienced it rather positive than negative) - The barkeeper was not able to make more than 4 drinks an hour;)
