Great hostel, very clean and cool. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The only let down was the breakfast... very few options compared to other hostels we have stayed in... and also the cooking facilities. The kitchen is tiny and we found ourselves having to wait a while to be able to cook dinner.

When I first arrived the receptionist was playing on his phone, I waited patiently for a few minutes, and then got his attention, he had absolutely no awareness of his surroundings. Anyway, really nice hostel, clean and friendly staff. There were quite a few rules which seemed to take the fun out of it, I would prefer staying in a... More

Service: The service is good and the staff is great, we stayed with my gf in a private room. The breakfast is ok, from 8am to 10pm. You have a variety a fruits, cakes, bread, juices... and other stuff. At night they give you the option to have dinner there for about 25R, which is a good price for a... More

The location of this hostel is great. It's just a short 100m stroll to the town centre. On check in, the staff were extremely informative and happy. I stayed in a 6 person female dorm room. My bed was comfortable and storage area for my bag was great. The bathroom was clean and spacious. They have many common areas to... More

Very good hostel which provided everything you needed and wanted as a traveller. Nice room, friendly staff and good atmosphere. Many other people come here at night time to have a drink and socialise. The hostel also offering homemade meals in the evening (25real including caipirinha) a bargain!

We stayed in a 6 dorm room on the first floor of this rather large and busy hostel. The bunk beds had lockable compartments beneath the bottom bed and some shelving. Only useful if you have a padlock which we didn't but good for getting our clunky backpacks out everyone's way. The bathroom was clean but with a very small... More

All the Che Lagarto hostel are different! That's what we noticed when we arrived in Paraty! The dorm is really small, we had a 6 dorm room. The kitchen is also very small and almost no equipment to cook some food. But then they serve a great breakfast and every night you can buy food from the hostel! We met... More

Overall, this is probably a reasonable hostel for the price in the location it is, however unfortunately our room was in an extension and there was a horrible smell, like sewage, throughout the room, which was on the top floor at the far end. There was a large hole/gap in the bathroom ceiling through which you could see the water... More

Really good vibe at this hostel and all the staff are super friendly. We had a very clean room with a good shower. The food was so cheap and was absolutely superb. The picture of the pool on Hostel world was a little deceiving as it's the size of a bathtub, but when you have so many beaches around, who... More
