We booked a 3D 2N Pantanal tour with Oscar from this hostel. The tour was not worth the money. I wouldn't book a tour with this hostel - better off to hire a car and drive yourself to the Pantanal. The activities were very low budget and we had a LOT of time to 'relax' (hang around a farm). We... More

This is a nice hostel located in a superb neighbourhood in Cuiaba, portal of Pantanal. I have been to pantanal in MS and it is much better to go through Cuiaba, since the roads will take you to different places in a matter of an hour, whereas in Bonito you will need to be in a road for around 3...

Chilled out place with great swimming pool. Nice staff. Kitchen. Activities proposed are expensive, other agencies are cheaper. A little expensive for what it is. Breakfast not included. Still I I would go back.

They go out of their way to help you and invite you along for social drinks, etc. The hostel has a nice vibe, chilled out with a swimming pool and lounge area, creating a... More

We booked this hostel for a few nights during the World Cup despite the inflated price (500BRL/night) as availability was low in the town, the hostel was in a good spot and we were able to book through booking.com - a site that we had used successfully in the past.
