Best location possible. Smack in the middle of Rua das Pedras, it's close to restaurants, bars, clubs and the pier where you get taxi boats to many beaches. It's also right on the edge of the beach, so you can have your breakfast or chill in a lounge chair by the ocean. The courtyard was very nice and chilled. Rooms...

Yep. This is easily the best hostel in Buzios. It faces the water, has a free cooked buffet and fresh baguettes, along with everything else you could possibly imagine, for R56! Nice staff, incredible location between the main pedestrian promenade and the water. It is superb. You can't go wrong. :) Thanks to all the staff for being so accommodating....

Buzios was our final stop at the end of a 4 month trip round south America, and we were looking to chill out for a few nights, which we quickly extended to an 11 night stay! Nomad Seashore is not only set in a perfect location because of its own staircase to access the beach, but it's also in the...

Location For a budget hotel in this area, the location is great. Patio area with direct access onto one of the quieter beaches. It's right in the centre of town and about a 15-20 min walk to Joao Fernandes. Great Italian restaurant attached to it. Rooms / Amenities We stayed in a private double room on the first floor.

This place is amazing! Wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon. We were greeted with chocolates, flowers and champagne! We had a beautiful balcony over the ocean and the staff was very friendly!

This was by far my worst stay at a hotel/hostel. Do yourself a favor and search for a "pousada" instead. There are tons of them but most don't seem to be listed on trip advisor. Pros: - Nice view Cons: - No wifi in the bedroom; it only worked in the courtyard area. Screens are extremely difficult to use in...

The hostel is located right in the centre of town and on the beach. You can hear the waves from your bed! Ideal. The breakfast is great. It even includes hot eggs and sausages. The staff are really friendly, even took me to the pharmacy and explained my symptoms when I was I'll. It really is a great hostel. Free...

I stayed at Nomads during a trip to Brazil and decided to spend a few days in Buzios. I chose Nomads based on the pictures and I was not disappointed. The hostel is a little difficult to find and I ended up walking up and down the street not understanding where Google said it was as there was a restaurant...

Stayed here for a weekend in Buzios, and paid extra for the double room with private bathroom and view of the ocean. Wow, the view was amazing! And the room was clean, with enough space, and friendly staff :) Would definitely recommend paying the extra for the view, and location was in the very centre, with restaurants and shops only...

The hostel has a lot of facilities, is in front of the beach and at Rua das Pedras, one of the main streets of the city. It's really easy to walk to several beaches and to find different restaurants. The staff was too serious, which made me feel a bit uncomfortable when I had to ask questions about the city.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Buzios is known for its amazing beaches and exciting nightlife. A place with such democratic, cosmopolitan and young vibes needed a hostel in its best location. So we've created the Nomad. The hostel entrance is located at Rua das Pedras, which is the city's most famous street. Rua das Pedras has lots of options for those who want to enjoy Buzios' restaurants, nightclubs and fashion stores. Nomad has also an exclusive exit to Canto beach. ... more   less
