When first arriving in the hostel the first thing you notice is the incredible view of the bay. At first we thought the staff were quite cold but by the end of our stay we realised they are really nice and helped us with any concerns or questions we had. The cleaning staff was almost always on hand and was... More

This place is beautifully situated, the staff is the nicest we have met in Brasil. The rooms are clean, the bartender had made the beat caipirinha I have ever tasted. Sure, there was water on the floor due to showering and I think the airconditioning was leaking. But this place is so nice that I really didn't care. Thank you... More

We had a 4 dorm room all to our selfs! The view was amazing. People are very friendly and I would really recommend the BBQ!! Also the location is perfect! Just 5 minutes away from the centre! Check the weather before you go, because you really need the sunny weather on Ilha Grande.

Everyone here is so friendly. The staff are keen to please and the rooms are spotless. There always seems to be a cleaner roaming the halls. The bunk beds are so solid so there's no creaking. There are always decent people around and the location is bang on. Highly recommend.

The hostel has a lovely deck out front with great views of the bay. The 4 bed dorm we stayed in was comfortable & the bathroom was also fine. They provide a good breakfast & hit or miss evening meals. Unfortunately the staff were not very friendly or welcoming at all which was disappointing as I'd come to expect better... More

Great time spent in this hostel! While not at the top of comfort we had an amazing experience meeting people from all over South America. Great parties and barbecues. Rooms, mattresses and pillows could be replaced with newer ones, and shower be stronger, but the experience made those forgivable. Hello to Sol!

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
