Didn't stay here but spent quite a few nights chilling out at the bar. The drinks were delicious if the bartender a little unfriendly, but then again as a big group of girls ordering a continuous line of cocktails we were probably incredibly annoying so I don't think I blame him and every drink he made was consistently fantastic.

Rented a private room - which was ok. Place is crowded with 18-25 years old travellers, Loud music every night til 0 a.m. Place is great for young people who are eager to meet other travellers and party. We wanted to spend some tranquile time, for that purpose we do not recommend it.

I love Che Lagarto in Paraty. It's comfortable and clean, the breakfast and the dinner is really good. The staff is super nice! I always stay there when I am in Paraty. I totally recommend it for solo or friends trip.

My friend and I stayed in a private room with ensuite! The room was basic but good. The vibe of this place is great. Although most travellers spoke Spanish or Portuguese many could still speak English. I don't think you can knock a place based on the origin of its guests! They offered tours that were good value. Breakfast was... More

The rooms were damp and humid (7 of us shared a dorm) our clothes always felt wet to the touch as a result. During our stay there was a power cut that took a full day to resolve. This meant we could not speak to our worried family members as the WI-FI was down an we were low on battery.... More

As a solo female Irish traveller it wasnt ideal as there is a lot of varied nationalities staying here, most non-English speaking and not very sociable. The hostel itself is clean, staff very friendly and quite helpful. Breakfast was the usual fruit,granola,bread,cake. Kitchen is very poor I cooked here two evenings and there is very little to work with and... More

Hostel is overall okay, but I wouldn't recommend. Bunks are okay, but the bathroom in 6 person dorm was disgusting, and shower generally cold (controls too high to reach!). Not a great place to meet people if you don't speak good Spanish as most guests were (understandably as it's an Argentinian chain) Argentinian. Wifi dodgy and cuts out a lot... More

On the one hand, the vibe is really nice there were loads of people and music ever night people with guitars and music instruments and breakfast was really good composed of fruits, cereal, tea/coffee, juice, and bread & jam. However, the WIFI doesn't reach the rooms and the beddings were not clean and the music stays really really late at... More

Che legarto - paraty I stayed in che legarto with my friend in June 2015 and whilst I don't leave reviews as often as I should, I felt it necessary to leave one for here. To say that the experience was a total nightmare wouldn't be fair as there were a couple of staff members, Felipe and another chap whose... More

Though the rooms are comfy and big after one night they feel damp and humid. Though the staff are nice and well trained they don't really do much or seem sincere. Though they provide breakfast, it is not good unless you don't eat in the mornings Though you may think you are paying for a room in a dorm, they... More
