I was a bit nervous at first. I was traveling alone and got in later than expected. From the moment I arrived at Aquarius they were welcoming and very helpful. The rooms/beds were clean, staff SUPER friendly. I can't stress enough how far out of their way they went to help me with anything I needed. I only stayed two...

We stayed here for a week and enjoyed our time on the island, which is beautiful. The hostel itself was ok. Our private room was very basic (as you would expect with the price) but cleaned daily.

This is a party place, not a hostel. The party's were nice, rooms were dirty and the water was cold. People were having sex in the rooms all the time. The location is good but That's it. I changed hostel for the last night.

If you're coming to ilha grande looking for a fun, welcoming and reasonably priced hostel overlooking Abraão bay, then this is the place to come! Everything, from the private room we were renting to the evening parties that were the biggest on the island, was all fantastic. You couldn't ask for anything more.

All you could want from a hostel in this area; great parties between Sunday - Thursday (the parties on Friday and Saturday night are in town) partly since its the only place to go out between those days and partly because the setting is so amazing. Staff are extremely chilled, they allow you to drink your own drink in their...

We have just left the hostel and overall it was the best place we have stayed in in Brasil. Debbie and Big Mama and the rest of the staff were absolutely superb, catering to our every need and making the experience truly memorable, while the room was clean and the public areas comfy. The reviews that complain about noise are...

Receptionist was incredibly helpful. Parties during the beginning of week were good fun. BBQs were excellent and very good value as the quality of meat was high. Rooms were clean. View of the bay is spectacular. The owner is a good bloke. Overall good hostel.
