This hostel has a really lovely location at the end of the beach, with an amazing deck where breakfast is served with a beautiful view. There are hammocks for use, and the the rooms are clean and comfortable (although the main building is nicer than the secondary one). The breakfast is good, but the internet is very slow. Staff are... More

Location and breakfast are excellent and the chef 'Lady V' is a wonderful lady. However the rest of the staff are really unfriendly, check in/out always took forever as there were never enough staff members and the internet almost never worked. However the worst thing about the stay were the beds. We arrived at the hostel at 4pm and were... More

Che Lagarto Hostel in Ilha Grande is the right place to stay for young travelers willing to meet others and party a bit on Ilha Grande. The location is great - on Vila do Abrao where the few restaurants and bars of Ilha Grande are, and close to the boats. However note that you can't get in the water in... More

- 100 reais have been stolen in my bedroom after cleaning services. Hostel manager did not move a finger, just said she cannot do anything for us. - Reception employees are incredibly unfriendly and lazy. - In addition to the power breakdown that occured on the whole island, Che Largato imposed us a water breakdown for several hours: we had...

The biggest advantage of this hostel is its location and awesome terrace where you can have breakfast or hang out at the evening. Hostel is clean and I think that old lockers were recently replaced with the new ones. Not all staff speak good English so it's difficult to communicate, especially if there is a problem with bookings and payments... More

First off, the view from the deck is probably the best of all hostels on the island but aside from that there is not much to sing about. Upon checking in I was taken to a different room from that I had booked (not a big deal) but was allocated a bed someone else was already sleeping in. I assume... More

Che lagarto is a fairly new hostel, clean look and has a beautiful view on the beach with a nice deck for breakfast (very good breakfast provided). They offer dinner at night and we were invited to a BBQ for 30R$ next door but make sure to show up on time otherwise you won't have very much left! The party... More

Great location, price, and really friendly staff, had an amazing time staying there, there's always dinners and parties, and the view from the hostel is great. If you want to know people and have a good time this is the best choice

I really loved this hostel. It was very clean, beside the water. It has balcony for breakfast above the water. Stuff was really kind and helpful. For example, lady made us sandwiches because we intended to walk to the remote beach, because there there was nothing to buy there. She didn't want to take any money for that. People helped... More

The night we arrived there was a party at the Aquario hostel next door and because they're so close there is barely a distinction between them. Anyway the party was fun when the wind picked up and the electricity cable got stuck in a tree. This meant no electricity for 2 days practically but they handled it very well with... More
