After having a great stay at the che lagarto in paraty I had high hopes for this hostel but it wasn't as great which is a shame! The staff aren't very helpful and it seems like you're putting them out of their way when you ask them a question. We stayed three nights and they couldn't provide towels for us...

I stayed in this hostel for 4 nights. The place is clean and nice. It's kind of far from most bars so if you want to be near the party I'd recommend getting another place. But if you want to relax right next to the beach, this place is great! Only thing I didn't like was that they didn't have...

Couldn't fault this hostel at all. Very clean, could use the kitchen between the the hours of 3pm and 10pm and staff were friendly. Breakfast was nice- bread rolls, fruit, cake, cereal. Location was great and a lovely veranda to relax on in the evenings.

I stayed in both Che Lagarton in Paraty and Ilha Grande. Both were great locations, but that was where the good points ended. I found the staff in both hostels to be unfriendly and rude. At no stage did they make me feel welcome, or offer a solo female traveller any tips on what to do in the local area...

Ilha Grande is so beautiful that wherever you stay the location is likely to be good. Che Lagarto is at the end of the beach, not too far from Abraão town and right next to the start of the trail to Lopes Mendes. The hostel itself was fine - the room was clean and the beds were okay, the breakfast...

Been there in a excursion. I only have good things to say about it! Nice atmosphere, clean bedrooms and bathrooms. Also they have lookers below the beds. There's a bar in the reception with tables outside with a amazing view to the Abraão beach!! Great breakfast in the morning!

The location, terrace and rooms of the hostel are really nice. There is just a thing on it. Almost all the staff and guest are argentinian, what makes you feel you're not in Brasil They really don't make the effort of exchanging in portuguese and they do community between them what makes you feel a bit out of the thing....

Its a cool place to hang out and the staff is nice and friendly but in our room the bathroom had some damage on the toilet seat, shower and it had the worst toilet paper I've seen in my life. At breakfast they didn't have a toaster because it had broken a couple of months ago..

Far from where the boat drops you off, especially with your bags! Staff really rude and unhelpful, couldn't get any wifi in rooms, stayed in 4 bed dorm, air con gets turned off automatically early hours of the morning and back on late at night so most of the day the rooms are a sweat pit. Sheets defiantly hadn't been...

We arrived off the boat having not booked a hostel as it was a sudden decision to go to I.G. We knew Che Lagarto had room for the two of us (we had checked while thinking about our next stop) but on arriving at the desk the lady told us they did not have room, she was incredibly rude when...
