This hostel is an excellent value for money. If you are a couple or just a group of 2-4 friends who wants to take a break from dormitories you can find a double room (can host comfortably up to 4 people) in this hostel in all most half (!) The price you will find in any other low end hostel... More

The standard of accommodation and breakfast at this hostel was good and seemed to be value for money until we asked Douglas to help us book a 1 night Pantanal trip. The trip turned out to be a disaster that cost more than others paid for for 2 nights in the Pantanal at exactly the same place. Granted we hadn't... More

We came here from the associated hostel in campo grande, the bonito hostel is much nicer and cleaner and the owner, Douglas, was very helpful, booking us tours and transport at the last minute. Breakfast was standard for Brazil. Close walking distance ( 2 blocks) from the main street.

We stayed here for one night. The rooms were clean and tidy and the outside area and common areas were nice with hammocks everywhere. There were computers with Internet and a TV. The breakfast in the morning was ok, everything seemed a bit stale. The manager of the hostel had not been very helpful the night before when we had... More

The price at the hostel was the biggest plus, it's half the price of the HI hostel in town. If course the HI hostel has more facilities like a pool and restaurant but for the budget minded traveller this place is a good choice. Breakfast is the standard fare, fruit, cheese, ham, breads etc. each room has it's own fridge,... More

Why is accommodation so expensive in Bonito? Not sure. But getting around it is easy if you can get a spare room here - about $35 for a room for two people - no haggling - no negotiating - easy. AC works a treat - is good sized rooms as well. Brekky nice - plenty to choose from and you... More

This hostel is bonito is simple and neat. The staff are nice enough, our room was pretty big and good air con, but our toilet seemed to be really smelly all the time. We didn't have a great experience with the Ecological Expeditions tour into the Pantanal. The guides were rude and dismissive but luckily our tour buddies and the... More

We weren't entirely sure what to expect with the hostel rated in the low 70 percentile on another website. We had booked a double room with private bathroom and air-conditioning. But, it seems as though all rooms are the same - quite spacious with four beds per room with a fridge as well. At a price of R$35 per person... More

We stumbled across this pousada when looking for a hostel after getting off a bus in Bonito. We found it reasonably priced at R$35 per person for a large double room with private bathroom, fast wifi, hammock in front of the room, cable tv, AC, hot shower and good breakfast. The walls are thin between rooms, but the other rooms... More

This hostel was fine. Rooms were ok but freezing. The shower was awful and ended up washing my hair in the sink. The operator of the hostel was really unhelpful. He has excellent english but mumbles under his breath and is so unclear when explaining where and what to do, was a very frustrating person to deal with. We were... More
