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

I really regret staying in this hostel... Awful service, extremely loud the whole day til night, rotten food under our bed, careless staff, wifi never working. Ilha Grande became the paradise for Argentinians searching for the summer dream, and this hostel is their headquarters. The staff is there to party among them and absolutely doesn't care about the guests. They... More

The view is amazing and the staff were friendly to me and gave me some food but if you want nice rooms etc get a pousada in Ilha grande. They are not that expensive. Good place to stay for one night. The price is reasonable too.

Check in took a long time and the lady at the reception didn't bother to apologize this or even notice us standing there, she was just talking on the phone in portuguese. I was assigned to a bed and when I came back later someone else was sleeping there - they had given him the same bed. When someone checked... More

Hostel was dirty (the kitchen was disgusting) and I saw a large rat near the kitchen area. Cockroaches all over the beautiful deck. There wasn't even any soap in the tiny overheated kitchen and barely any utensils (all of which was dirty - but then there was nothing to clean them with!) Staff were not particularly friendly or helpful (apparently... More

We were quite disappointed by Che Lagarto. We spent 3 nights in a private room, which was adequate, relatively clean, and reasonably priced. However, overall the hostel was a disappointment. In our three days there were multiple water outages and almost no wireless internet available. Breakfast was uneven and picked over, food and utensils were often out. Everywhere else we... More
