Big Hostel is great. It is a walkable distance to the historic center, there is air conditioning in every room, the wifi is fast, the rates are cheap, there is hot water in the showers, and the rooms are beautiful. I was able to get a great deal for my family's stay. The number of people in our group changed... More

We had a good time there, although there is some room for improvement. The staff is friendly but a bit unattentive and doesn't seem to care too much, there is no wife in most rooms and the breakfast is average. The location is a bit too far from the center, so if you're looking to explore manaus there might be... More

The best part was the staff, which was really friendly and told us a lot about the city and the amazon. Good common area to meet people. Had a really good night there. Rooms are spacious and clean Only drawback that there were tons of mosquitos in the room.

This place is right next to a swampy canal, our room was full of mosquitoes. Spent most of the night slapping at them. It is also right next to a little bar that blasts very loud music all night long.

words can not explain the fun I had staying at this hostel, the rooms are clean and have air con, I stayed during the world cup, and pretty much had the dorm to myself. The communal area was super clean, and the staff so helpful and maybe a little crazy. I meet some great people and had some amazing experiences... More

I loved my time in Manaus. I really enjoyed staying at Big Hostel Brasil. The people there were wonderful and very friendly. It was a wonderful experience and the hostel became my home in Brazil. It was hard to leave. And if I ever make it back to Manaus. I would definitely stay there again.

First time in Brazil and first time staying at a hostel. It was the start of the World Cup and the place was pretty busy with people from all over the world coming and going. Fair to say it was a great experience even though the majority of the time i was there i had no clothes courtesy of the... More

The new owners (since 01/08/2014) are highly motivated and organized a special price for a night ride to the airport with a cooperating taxi driver. I recommend this cheap and very clean hostel with a nice and open community area in the backyard, air-conditioning and good location in the center, between the theater and the port, in front of a...

I really enjoyed this hostel. Very nice people. Bathrooms always spotless. Family atmosphere. Almost all the guests are foreigners. Previous owner (who left a couple days after I arrived) swears nothing has ever been stolen. Good security with someone at the front desk at all times, opening the gate only for people who look worthy. By Brazilian standards, the beds... More

We stayed there two nights during the World Cup (June 21 & 22, 2014) and the owners gouged us viciously. This was the only room we could find on the internet when we booked accommodations in April and they charged us 960 Reals a night. This room was worth perhaps $20-30 but since the World Cup was going on and... More
