Bittersweet stay at this hostel. Location is good right across from the beach with access to non motorised activities such as kayaking and stand up paddle. A short walk to town as well. The staff were a mixed bunch with Peppi from Peru being most organised and helpful and then Mumma plastic surgery with no clue but a big smile... More

The hostel has a real "beach house-look to" it. Since it wasn't high season, we got an upgrade of our room. The room was not extremely spacious, but it was definitely OK. The hostel is located directly at the beach, so you can be sure you will wake up to a nice view. A downside is that it is not... More

We have been travelling around south America for 5 months now and while the staff were very nice it was probably he worst hostel we stayed in. The whole place smelt of drains at times and everything seemed a bit rough and badly made. There was loud music keeping us awake and it was awful music at that. There is... More

We stayed in a lovely double room for our first two nights. Such a comfy bed with two big huge pillows each. Private bathroom too. Beautifull wood finish everywhere, really warming :-) we moved to a dorm for the next few nights and found it just as comfy. I would highly recommend this hostel. I felt so relaxed and happy... More

Stayed here for four nights and so glad we made the effort to get here. It's right on jabaquara beach which is the most beautiful beach in Paraty, the staff are lovely and really helpful. There are great restaurants close by. The vibe of the hostel is chilled and friendly. It's a ten to fifteen minute walk into town but... More

I spent here 4 nights in March and I really regret I haven't stayed more. The structure looks more like a resort than a hostel. High quality food and live music. The staff was amazing. I don't know how many time the owner get me to the centre (15 mins walking) and pick me up, he was the kindest and... More

This place gives me the shivers everytime i think about it! We were given a private room in the back of a huge dorm. We payed a silly amount of money for this cramped dark room. The dorm outside smelled like wee! I am pretty sure somebody just had a wee in the middle of the room. We had to... More

After reading reviews we thought this would be a great hostel to stay in however we were a little disappointed. The website makes it out to be a lot nicer than it actually is. We stayed in a 10 bed mixed dorm - it was meant to be air conditioned but it was only at one end of the room... More

Unfortunately I have nothing positive to say about this place. I found it to be disorganized and dirty, which gives it a very low price/quality rating. The staff was not helpful nor friendly. It seemed as they were also on vacation and did not want to be bothered - although the price was high enough to expect to be treated... More

There is nothing bad I could possibly say about this hostel. My girlfriend and I initially were going to stay for 3 days or so, we ended up here for just over a week. The staff are second to none, they were incredibly helpful, the setting and the hostel itself were out of this world. Very clean, amazing breakfast.... the... More
