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

We had a fantastic experience at Che Lagarto in Ilha Grande. We stayed in a private room with a private bathroom. It was nice and clean. There was a hammock hung outside our room and a beautiful view of the water. The common area deck (outside of the lobby) is right on the water with a great view. It is... More

Very expensive for what it was, we looked online and booked with a certain price and then they tried to charge us far more! Shower broke in our room. Plug didn't work in our room, and there was no wifi at all. There are better cheaper options to go for. BBQ was nice, and lots of meat. Staff were ok.... More

Che legarto was clean enough though there was an army of ants marching into the kitchen. The hostel was friendly and had a lovely position next to the sea on the beautiful island of Ilha Grande. It was cheap and one of the only, if not THE only budget option available. I had a good nights sleep and met some... More

We were abit concerned after reading some reviews but were pleasantly surprised, the hostel was very clean, had hot showers, the staff were helpful and the location was amazing. The cocktails are mega cheap, on Saturday night there was a bbq and a great atmosphere. We had the room at the front with a balcony which was gorgeous. Only thing... More

First of all, ilha grande is a stunning island regardless of where you are staying. Although I would recommend che lagarto due to it's location. It is right on the waterfront with a magnificent view of the bay. It makes breakfast/ dinner (on the deck) taste 10 times better. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was good. Fairly... More

Friendly staff, English speakers. good sized rooms, relatively clean, good bunks, good lockers under each bunk, en suite showers (but could do with a scrub). Bring ear plugs as it gets noisy at night. I left after 1 night because the mattresses and pillows smelt and looked mouldy. I would have been happy with it were it not for this.
