07 July 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The location is bittersweet... it's up a hill and it can be quite a hike after a night of drinking, but once you are there, it is like being at a spa or resort because of the beautiful landscape and sounds of a running river and mini waterfall. The rooms were clean and well-kept and fresh towels/sheets were provided every day (a first for us in Brazil). The owner is a nice guy and lived in America for a while, and it seems he brought some of the American ideals (customer service is important) to Brazil. This is the first place I've been in Brazil where I felt like I was being treated as a paying customer should be treated. The breakfast was great and the coffee was pretty good (coffee was available 24/7). There's also a hammock outside of every room - very relaxing. It was nice and quiet at night and the sound of the river/waterfall will put you right asleep.

Disliked: Don't stay here if you are allergic to cats (they don't go in your room, but they are all around the property and will come up to you at breakfast and snuggle/try to grab some of your food). Hostelbookers says the Pousada accepts credit cards, but be careful because we got stuck paying cash and almost didn't have enough money to get home. Bring extra cash just in case.

10 June 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The place has loads of character and lots of love and attention has clearly been put into making this a home away from home. Lovely breakfast and fresh fruit every morning, a flowing stream at the end of the garden, and a few pet cats to cuddle if it gets cold at night! The owner Claus was a real help and it was a great place to chill out and relax after a hard days tanning at the beach!

Liked: Claus is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are beautiful and very rustic with balcony's and hammocks. Breakfast is lovely with great eggs. Only downside is the walk up to the pousada from the town as its quite a steep hill but because of this the pousada is quiet and peaceful. Claus has a great per kilo restaurant down in the main town.

Liked: This place is great. Amazing breakfasts - cake, fruit, eggs and juices - and the host Claus is really helpful. Beautiful setting by a waterfall (with a stream you can swim in) pristine rooms and good chill areas with hammocks etc. Not a party hostel, great place to relax. Only drawback was no guest kitchen, but otherwise would totally recommend it.

Liked: really really nice accommodation - the owner hasn~t forgotten his german routes as everything is spotless, tastefully and expertly furnished, the location is great with a beautiful garden, stream, huge rooms..... i cant fault this place at all and would recommend it to anyone, although as a single traveller, id recommend it more to couples or groups of friends than solos...... it really is the best place on the island though

Liked: Lovely garden, and proximity to waterfall after which it is named. Decent, spacious bedrooms. Those who like quiet places will appreciate that it´s situated on a hill above the noise of the town centre. It does help if you like cats---there are 8 of them!

25 October 2009 Steven would recommend this property

Liked: The owner, Klaus, is both very helpful and a very nice man who takes time to ensure you're enjoying your stay and getting the most out of your trip. Sitting in a hammock with the soothing sound of the nearby waterfall nearby was truly a relaxing experience. This is definitely a place for cat lovers as there are so many on site, all are very friendly. The hostel isn't gigantic and the rooms are nicely spaced to make you feel comfortable during your stay. The place is laid out well, and we ended up feeling very refreshed after staying. Klaus also owns the Biergarten on the island which is a kilo restaurant and bar. It was also a nice place to visit, though due to the bad weather when we stayed, was a bit too quiet.

Liked: Like other reviews say; yes it is a bit of a steep walk to the hostel and there are quite a few cats, but it is all still worth it to stay there. The hostel was lovely and staff extra friendly and helpful. The photos of the hostel don´t do it justice. The hostel is lovely and in a great setting in the rainforest where you can hear waterfalls around you. The rooms are lovely, and very clean. Breakfast is also great, with yummy scrambled eggs, which were a lovely bonus to us. I would definately stay hear again.

Sean Merry

03 September 2009 Sean would recommend this property

Liked: Claus is an German hippy who cares for his guests without being intrusive. He also owns the best vegetarian (though there's meat available) option restaurant on the island. The location some way up the hill is a few minutes from the main drag, which, as well as the already chilled out environment at Cachoeira, keeps the feel removed and relaxed. Where you eat brekky is great, and the Ilha is amazingly relaxed and untouched by development. Really good.

Liked: if you hate cats dont go here. i like cats so it was fine, there are about 10 that lounge around the beautiful garden. the hostel is run by Claus von stroke who lives around the corner. there is a nice patio area where breakfast is served including cereal, fruit and hot water, hot milk, coffee and hot chocolate. its surrounded by the forest which adds to the atmosphere. my only drawback was that it was further away than all the other places to stay, up a steep(ish) path. but is much nicer than some of the gritty hostels on the island. no internet but there is access in the village center. one of the double rooms is in a new converted roof, nice and modern with amazing air con! (essential)
