Positives: use of kitchen as you please, central location in the old city, cheap Negatives: quite rundown- it was wet rainy weather when we were there so several leaks throughout the hostel. Breakfast was limited - bread roll and banana. Lockers were broken. However the price is very backpacker friendly and you get what you pay for

Paraty is a nice place to stay, so the hostel is in a very nice location in the historical centre. Even though the rooms are small and filled with beds, everyone has a chance to lock their things! BUT DONT FORGET TO BRING YOUR LOCK! People are usually nice, so you can keep it unlocked, too. The bathrooms are simple,...

Avoid unless you really don't care Or plan to be so inebriated that where you sleep simply doesn't matter. Staff seemed surprised when we left immediately after arriving, although friendly to be fair. Filthy, filthy beds (close to collapse), there was a dirty towel stuffed under my mattress and nowhere to store belongings. Lockers all broken.

Stayed in the 8 bed dorm. Definitely too many beds, not enough space to move around let alone put your bags somewhere that trip everyone up. Staff were ok-ish...seemed more interested in talking amongst themselves than being particularly friendly or helpful. The whole "rasta" mantra that ran throughout place (jah graffitied everywhere, a reggae playlist on 24/7) felt fairly contrived....

This is one of the worst hostels I've ever stayed in. I arrived late in the evening and got told that the water wasn't working and they didn't know when it will be back on (I'm sure this isn't common but it was definitely annoying). The rooms were right by the kitchen and the doors and windows opened onto this...

Lovely staff, good location. Dorm rooms pretty basic, fine for the price. We were the only guests at the hostel and the staff were very kind and helpful, which made our time enjoyable. The kitchen facilities were okay but a little bit dirty. Nice areas to hang out and read, showers pretty good. Worth staying.

we stayed in the main large dorm - 16 people. definitely too many in that room, especially with only one fan. Most of the lockers (under beds) are broken. For the price it is just ok - what do you expect for 6.50 a night?? basic, basic cleanliness - I washed everything before cooking after reading reviews but it´s not...

I've been to many hostels and don't expect too much for a cheap price but that hostel was just terrible. It was dirty, especially the matressses weren't clean. The showers had a weird smell, seemed to be mode, the toilets weren't clean either - I better don't give any details but I had to take care not to puke after...

In my opinion this is the best hostel in the world. The owner and his girlfriend are amazing people, very humble, very simples and with an amazing good vibe. The whole place has a good and peaceful vibe! With you like people with good heart and good music, this is the right place.
