Nice hostel with lovely garden and good location, near to the bus-station. Good to recognize by the beautiful colourfull old VW-van in the entrance area. We stayed here just for a short time but felt very welcomed, especially by Eric at the reception. He´s really outstanding!! He gave us a lot of recommendations to plan our day and was helpful...

This hostel was in a great location, walking distance to the historic centre, the canal, bus station, Main Street, supermarket and our favourite Caiparinha bar. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms were cleaned daily. Breakfast was good but it would have been nice to have a bit more fruit variety. The hostel can organise tours for you, we did... More

I can't understand why Casa do Rio has had such bad reviews on here - our experience has been overwhelmingly positive. We stayed in room number 1, a 5-bed dorm room which was R$50 a night per person including breakfast. The room was bright and clean, and had an ensuite toilet and shower as well as a powerful fan to... More

It is greatly located, very close to bus station and historic centre. The sun deck along the river gives great relaxation, especially when having breakfast. Breakfast includes only jam and bread, but it is enough when having coffee. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. However, you should be aware that they have a tendency to forget your reservation (from... More

Totally overpriced. A restriction on how many bread rolls at breakfast?! Please! Staff were really unhelpful and the set up was shocking. Only one key per room and so I had to wait an hour until other members of my room returned because the staff refused to open the room for me. Super cramped and limited bathrooms. If you get... More

DO NOT GO! This hostel is simply UGLY. It's the first time I'm writing a review in tripadvisor since I was shocked by this experience. I have been staying in hostels and Honestly it never happened to me to see something similar. Shortly, the room and the bath smelt disgusting, it was like sleeping in a public dirty toilette. The...

Do not choose this hostel, you can definitely find better accomodation in Paraty for the same price. We booked a double room (with private bathroom) in this hostel for the price of 150 reais per night by internet several weeks before arriving in brazil. We thought that this would have been a nice and not expensive accomodation and we felt... More

The music from the bar is on a DVD on repeat and blairs out into the rooms day and early morning. The outside lighting and thin curtains make it difficult to sleep. The pool is the size of a jacuzzi but without heat or bubbles! The rooms are desperately musky and damp. The service is terrible: -payment in advance (good... More

We booked in here as we hadn't arranged accom in Paraty beforehand and took the easy option of listening to a guy at the bus stop because it was cheap and close. Bad call! Most of our double room was taken up by the musty smelling bed. They had the same cheesy music DVD on repeat the whole time were... More

We took a Private Double room which meant we would get a couple's bed. At least we thought we were. We got our bed, but we also get a double bed, which took all the space left in the room. There was no space to walk, or to leave our bags. If that was the only problem, it would've been... More
