“So far worst hostel in Brazil”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

We arrived late in the evening in Paraty so we didn't take to much time looking around and had been happy to find this hostel near the historical city Centre. The location in the town is where the pro-section stops. The hostel has as far as I know 2 8 bed dorm rooms - devided by a thin wooden door. The whole place is very noisy and you can hear everything everyone does... Everywhere. Breakfast was like most of the hostels with coffee and bread. Bathroom has not been too clean as well. The really bad part was when we were leaving. We asked the owner whether it was possible to deposit our luggage for some time. She that that this was OK for her. When returning to get our luggage she insisted on the fact that we did not check out probably so we had to pay for another half day which is something I did not experience ever before. So I can not recommend to stay here.

Stayed there for 2 nights in a 12-bed dorm. Two of the bunk beds nearly collapsed and were simply dangerous to sleep on, yet this did not prevent the owner from renting them anyway. There is insufficient room in the communal areas compared to the sleeping capacity of the hostel, and the little space available was most of the time taken up by the strange owner and her friends. During the day, the hostel owner had the odd habit to remove your clothes from your bed and lay them wherever she pleased (afterwards complaining that we had to leave something on the bed, because she couldn't remember which beds were free). Also, unknown visitors and unneutered cats walked into the dorms and because there were no lockers, luggage was not safe from theft or cat pee.
So, if you go to Paraty, you might want to consider another hostel. Unless you love the smell of cats and don't mind having breakfast/dinner on the floor.
