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

This hostel is about a 15 minute walk from the pier at Abrao. Ilha Grande does not have roads, just sandy tracks so this in itself is a mission in the heat if you have a suitcase rather than a rucksack. You can pay men at the pier who have carts to transport bags. The surroundings of the hostel are... More

I wanted to stay longer. The hostel is so nice, surrounded by trees and plants. It is not close to the centre, but I didn't mind. It is a place to relax. The rooms are spacious and clean. The bathroom is good. The breakfast is amazing! The best I had in Brazil. The people are nice and helpful. WiFi is... More

A nice 'Eco' feel about it. It is under 10 minutes walk from Abrao centre, mostly uphill, set more in the forest. We stayed in a private double ensuite - they are mini cabins which are cute but a bit small. Air con was a nice surprise as this was not advertised. However, note that this hostel DOES NOT have...

Stayed in an 8 bed dorm (4 x 2 level bunks) which had its own ensuite, room was spacious and cleaned daily. Great breakfast every morning with plenty of fruits and cake along with the standard bread rolls. Has a really chilled vibe and feels really secluded however it is only a short 5min walk from the pier. Has decent... More

We stayed in mixed 6bed dorm with ensuite bathroom which was cleaned daily. The hostel is so cool and relax, great area for hanging out in beautiful surroundings. We met other people staying in poussadas who came chilling with us at Holandes everyday. Breakfast is varied and extensive for a hostel also staff will help you with whatever you need.... More

Wasn't sure what to make of Holandes on first impressions. Ended up here because of lack of accommodation available, bit was really glad to stay here. It's nicely tucked away, but 5-7minute walk to the pier. Nice surroundings, really chilled and peaceful. The staff here work really hard and was seriously impressed with how much they do to keep the... More
