This hostel is kept very clean, with a friendly atmosphere and very helpful staff. Warm showers, good breakfast and free wifi. Gorgeous setting, decking area looks over the bay. However, the location is at the end of the beach, quite a walk from the main area - difficult when walking with heavy rucksacks!

Everything was as expected in this hostel. Adequate beds, linens and toilet facilities. AC worked pretty well and the breakfast was ok. The place where the hostel itself is nothing short of breathtaking. It is a 5-10 minutes walk from the ferry station and you can only get there on foot. It is RIGHT there in the beach and overlooks... More

Our room at Che Lagarto was like a little hotel room, the nicest place we had stayed in Brazil so far. The communal area outside the rooms was like a little terrace with hammocks and a small kitchen, and nice tables our for breakfast which included fresh fruit and ham and cheese with a toasted sandwich maker

Myself and my friend stayed here for 5 nights and we were very disappointed with the whole experience. Yes it has an amazing view but that's as good as it gets. First of all, the wifi very rarely works including on the hostel computers so forget trying to research or book anything online. The communal kitchen doesn't open until three... More

I spent 4 nights in Che Lagarto and I was so fascinated that I had to come back, 3 days later, for 5 more nights! First of all, is a front-beach hostel with an incredible view to Abraao bay. Secondly, its useful facilities and clean large spaces, mixed with its friendly and smiley staff, make Che Lagarto from Ilha Grande... More

I picked this hostel even though it was pricer than the others because I had liked the Che Legarto in Ipanema so much. I arrived at 2p.m off the boat and with only 2 nights I was eager to get started. The staff had no advice and little English found it hard to even get directions to the nearest shop.... More

The location was unbelievable when we arrived, sitting outside to that view when eating was amazing. Rooms were warm, beds were comfortable. The blankets made it better as it was a cold week! The staff were really friendly and helpful, especially Daniel the bar man (makes the best caprihanas ever). Very sad to say goodbye to him when we left!... More

Well, ... They do have a nice spot, you can't be closer to the sea. The team is very nice and helpful as well. But, ... Would you be looking for some comfort in your room you might be at the wrong place. Bathrooms seems to be the weak point of Che Lagarto Hostels. This one was not an exception.... More

The hostel has a really lovely location at the end of the beach. The staff are friendly. The Internet in common area is good. However the hostel include kitchen is dirty. And the staff and most of guest like to make noisy! I recommend this hostel for those who like to party.

We booked 4 nights here before arriving but left after one. The 6 bed dorm was COVERED in thick black mould and so smelt and felt incredibly damp and musty. All four walls were affected and behind one bed it looked like tar. When we checked in the girl on reception spoke no english at all (our fault for not... More
