Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

Vini and the boys have got something seriously good going on here. The staff are all incredibly friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere about the hostel is top notch. If you're into your surfing or want to give it a go but have never tried ubatuba is the place to start and the Green haven guys are the perfectly people to guide you.

Green haven hostel is an extremely welcoming place. I have spent a week there while trying to settle down in the city and, of course, to surf! The place is very clean and it feels like a family home. You have multiple services offered by the hostel that makes life easier: washing machine, transfer to the beaches and downtown, bike renting... The owners are very welcoming and are really trying to help you get an understanding of the surroundings and all the great things to do around: going to the waterfalls, nightlife, surfing, etc. Ubatuba is also a great place to learn portuguese and the hostel is strategically located near the best and cheapest language schools of the city. I am highly recommending this hostel, it is the best I have ever been to !!

Room Tip: Multiple types of rooms, but I would recommend the six bed bedroom with a view on the sea!!

We had an awesome stay at green haven. Vini the hostel manager is the best man ever. He gave us lots of advices what we could do at Ubatuba. But the best thing was the amazing surfing day:)
The hostel is very clean and they are going to build up a pool.

Hands down the best hostel I've been to in Brazil. The hostel personel alone are cause for a 100% rating. Not to mention the amazing amenities, cleanliness and location. If you are traveling to Ubatuba, this is the only hostel you should consider. Furthermore, if you are travelling Brazil, Green Haven is reason enough to head to Ubatuba. Valeu Vinny!!!

Room Tip: The 14 person room is amazing. The bunks are only 2 high and are clean, spacious and comfortable.

This place is everything you would want as a backpacker - steps from the beach, clean, (great showers - so key!), comfortable, fun and run by an amazing crew who makes the place come alive. Not only are they all incredibly friendly and helpful, but they'll take it upon themselves to make sure you have the best time possible. Want to see a remote beach? They'll drive you there. In fact, they'll pick you up at the bus station free of charge, make a fresh fruit smoothie for you, fit you up with boards and then take you to their favourite surf spot. The sense of community here is unreal, and the staff's attention to detail is fantastic. We loved our stay here and highly encourage people to check it out.

Room Tip: They're all connected to a balcony, or else have huge windows overlooking the beach. Take your p...

Wow! The location of this hostel was in an amaaaaazing location, like 1 minute walk to the beach! You can hear the waves from your room. Had an epic time in this hostel. Most things are nearby. Clean hostel and very helpful and friendly staff. Really great hostel, so easy to meet new people. Lot's of things to do, the transfers were especially great. Felt very welcome and the hostel had a very cool vibe, chilled out atmosphere. All the staff were so easy to get along with and the owner was great! Highly recommended! Would love to come back again! Found it very difficult to leave, this place is a MUST! :)
