I stayed at the El Misti Hostel during January 2015 High Season. The following is based solely on my experience. I’m sure that every experience is different. Pros: -Super friendly staff -A lot of young people in their 20’s from all over the world, all with an appetite for partying. Nightly parties at the hotel bar. -Breakfast is included and... More

When we arrived there was no running water from the taps or in the shower. Then there was a power cut, this happens all the time apparently, so most places were only off for 5 minutes before their own generators were turned on to provide power again. The hostel didn't have a generator. We then wanted to get our bedding... More

Couple of the staff were really friendly and helpful and the breakfast was quite good but don't expect to have a shower. When the water did work hardly any water came out, and of course it was cold. Oh and the bathroom light sensors that only turn the light on for 3 seconds are fun... Kitchen is also crap. Having... More

The people and staff were very nice but everything else about the place was about to break apart. The wifi never worked, there was only one electric plug that worked in the entire room, no light in the bathroom or shower (we used emergency light ) and people were falling from there bed at night! (No joke) at least they... More

We came to Ilha Grande during a storm. Came to the hostel and we got to know we didn't have any electricity in our room. The next morning we didn't have water either. Our room lit up with a candle and we got to flush the toilet with a bucket of water. It was a terrible week. The staff was... More

Illha Grande is beautiful (aside from the stray dogs) the island itself is nothing short of breathtaking - if you're short on cash and at the end of your budget, i'd recommend staying here, it's not the cleanest by any stretch of the imagination, or really suitable for couples, but as far as a £10 or less hostel a night,...

I was not sure what to expect based on some of the photos I had seen, but the level of finish of the property was fantastic. Good atmosphere and the service is very professional.

Good quality, awesome breakfast, a free caipirinha, good service in general. You don't need to pay extra charges for anything. Good atmosphere. One negative point: one bathroom for 9 persons when the dorm is full. I strongly recommend this hostel.
