This is probably among the best hostels I have stayed in, especially considering it is on the cheaper end of the spectrum. The staff on reception seemed friendly and helpful from the interactions I had with them. Our room keys/cards stopped working one day, and my friend's bedding was taken by another guest in our room, but on both occasions... More

Great hostel with an excellent breakfast and lovely staff. The outdoor areas are also nice with loads of hammocks and shaded areas. The room was a little small for six people and the lockers not really big enough for big rucksacks so the room often felt overcrowded. Alright for a couple of nights though.

If you're sociable, cheap, and regard sleep for the weak, then this is perfect. Normally as a place to sleep, it's average, but for the price you pay and included breakfast, it surpasses its initial expectations. Great for backpackers and those who want to explore the town and just have a place to rest your head.

My husband and I booked a private double ensuite. I say ensuite - the bathroom consisted of a pane of (clear) glass at the back of the room with a make-shift surround. No ventilation and not a full length partition. Basically the least private or appealing bathroom I've ever had the misfortune to use. And when I say use: the... More

Great hostel. Rooms are comfortable, bathrooms are clean, breakfast is fine, location is great. The staff is very, very, very nice and helpful. There is a bar and lots of people hanging out, so it's easy to meet new people and make friends. Overall, a really nice hostel!

Compared to other che lagarto hostels in Brazil, this one is not one of the nicest. The location in paraty is good, the hostel has a nice chill out area & friendly staff, but that's it about the really positive aspects. The kitchen is kind of a joke. It is tiny and they don't even have a pan. They offer... More

The rooms looked modern but were very very basic, the windows didn't have proper shutters so didn't feel very safe. There was a lots of creepy crawlies present in the shower and the toilet didn't flush when we tried it. Glad we were only there for 2 days couldn't have stayed much longer.

We went to Paraty over a weekend, so the hostel was naturally very busy. We stayed in a six bed dorm, beds were pretty confortable and there is a large locker that fits any type of suitcase for each of you. The bathroom was decent but it's better if you're the first one using it... The staff is helpful and... More
