A few minutes walk from all the restaurants and take a torch for the walk in case of power cuts. The layout and gardens make it a quiet place to stay. One of the more expensive hostels we stayed in as we had a private cabin. It was a bit damp and smelled funny and we thought we might have... More

I really liked this hostel, yeah, its a bit of a walk but only 10 mins from the main town Centre. Just walk on the main road that runs in parallel to the beach road (you're walking westerly, going right, facing the sea) then take a right when you cross a bridge just before the little blue church which has...

Maybe tricky to find as google maps is not really accurate but locals are very helpful but once there thanks to the hammocks, the garden and the kind staff you'll forget anything else. Breakfast was also much appreciated and healthy with fruits and homemade cake.

Once you I arrived in Ilha grande you will be already more relaxed and in this hostel this will happen even more, the garden is beautiful, all the rooms are surrounded by nature. The 6 bed room is on two floor, with a nice and clean private bathroom. Breakfast is nice and Brazilian style, loved the cake. Grab a beer... More

I went there about two years ago and went back again this last week because I remembered how beautiful and peaceful it was. It does take a 5 min walk up an easy hill but it is totally worth it if you want to see the hummingbirds fly around, enjoy a beautiful garden, and to have the wind take your... More

I traveled with a large group of people (7 people) to Ilha Grande in June, Before arriving my friend spoke to a member of the host team to secure a dorm room exclusively for us as we agreed to pay for the empty beds. She was told we did not have to pay a deposit and the room would be... More

By far the most aesthetically pleasing of all hostels I visited in Brazil. Well-worth the fifteen minute trek to arrive. Staff was helpful, breakfast was above average, and the environment was very peaceful. The rooms were very nice, with particularly clean bathrooms for a hostel. My only complaint was that the internet was consistently poor, but I think it's a... More

I had a terrible, terrible experience with these folk. They have absolutely no understanding of the meaning of hospitality. My friends and I arrived with a copy of the booking confirmation after walking the uphill which took us double the time because there were so many of us and each had a piece of luggage and it was a struggle...

From the moment you arrive, you start to like this oasis of greenery. Reception is up some more steps, be warned. Staff are friendly though it probably helped that I spoke some Portuguese. Breakfast is delicious, with ENOUGH to fill you up, even if you do only get one fresh roll with ham and cheese. Sometimes cakes appear during the... More

It was my first hostel in Brazil and it overcame expectations, I'd have stayed more if I could, the rooms are clean, breakfast is pretty good and the trees make it the perfect spot for chilling out after a long day enjoying this amazing island
