Initially only planning on staying for 5 days, my girlfriend and I ended up staying for 10 days on Ilha Grande, deciding to spend all of our nights in Abrãao in the El Misti. The location is great. I found the staff to all be very helpful and sufficiently multilingual to help as much as possible. The breakfast is generous.... More

The two good things about this El Misti are its location (2 min from the place where you get out of the ferry) and the breakfast (which is not amazing, but ok, and can help you skip lunch, which is nice when you want to go hiking). Apart from that, there nothing good to be said: unfriendly staff, dorms are... More

I really really recommend finding another place to stay. While the location is good, and the reception and common area look nice, the place is a dump and has serious security issues which DO exist on this island. Everyone who steps into the rooms for the first time says *this looks like a jail* The bunks vertically are so close... More

triple bunk beds, pretty comfy, rooms are a bit cramped when full. Due to an error our room got overbooked on the first night so they had to split us up but the staff were really nice and offered us a free night and a caipirinha (jackpot!!). good location, really near everything, nice common area, massive TV showing extreme sports...

Overall the hostel was nice, just that one of the staff members misbehavied and that made us feel very uncomfortable for the rest of our stay. I can understand the rivality between Brazil and...

We didnt like this hostel specifically because they dont allow anyone else to come in if theyre not staying in the hostel. We met people in the island and wanted to hang out with them inside, and they werent allowed in. Also, a couple of staff members were very rude. Bed sheets grossed me out a little, they should buy...

The good stuff : Firstly, the breakfast here was outstanding - probably the best I've encountered after 18 months backpacking in Latin America, location is great, nice little social hostel and easy to meet people. Helpful staff. The bad stuff : Three triple bunks in a tiny room was just way too cramped. There were 4 lockers for 9 people.... More
