Only stayed for one night, so am barely in a position to judge but except for limited wifi the hostel seemed fine. Rooms are clean and big enough and breakfast was fine. Staff was friendly and nearly over excited to see you. Just didn't particularly enjoy Paraty itself.

We stayed in the 6-person room. There were 3 bunks / 6 beds in a space that would be better for 2 bunks / 4 beds. The door banged into one of the bunks every time it opened, and even then could only open part way. It was clean, though very humid and the bathroom got / stayed really wet.... More

Well where to start. The girls from Argentina were so rude stephanie in particular. She will cater to your needs if you are a boy but dare to be a girl and ask for help. One day we could not shower and i watched kiki tell every traveler a different story as to why. They all lie! This group do... More

Without a doubt, this was the best hostel I have ever been to, and for an amazingly cheap price. The atmosphere was happy and relaxed (a bit hippyish even!), the historic centre of Paraty was about a 5 minute walk away, the staff were really friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The guests that you find... More

Beautiful outside space with hammocks and pool. We arrived in time for the Mexican night, with a good live singer, which meant the bar was busy and the food popular. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Great place to stay in Paraty and even the transfer driver stayed there as well as other locals.

I really enjoyed staying in the hostel. The staff was really friendly, particularly the Argentine receptionist, and the yard with the swimming pool and hammocks is beautiful. We were there the night of a party and the music was great. Unfortunately we had to be up and out by 4am. Obrigada por tudo!

We stayed in a private double - the room was spacious and clean with a nice big bed. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. Every night there was special food night at reasonable prices (there's a kitchen too if you want to cook instead) and they offer tours too. There was a good mix of locals and foreign... More

The hostel is good located and the staff really nice, they allowed me to take a shower when I came back in te evening the day I checked out. The bar has good cocktails but a little bit expensive. I ate only one night during pizza evening and it wasn't worthy for what it was. The 8 bed dorm where... More
