I am very happy with my stay at the Backpacker's House Hostel in Paraty. The sheets are clean, the atmosphere is laid-back and they have a great breakfast. Between the rooftop terrace, the hammocks, hanging/swinging chairs and the pool there are plenty of options to lay back, relax and unwind.

I immediately fell in love with this hostel. Pablo has done a great job at creating such a positive and welcoming atmosphere, along with help from the other awesome staff Paula and Seth. The dorm bed was comfortable, the breakfast was lavish, and the common areas and by the pool were a great place to chill and meet other travellers....

Other staff members Seth and Paula were legends - thanks guys for the lovely time we had! We stayed in a double room wth ensuite, the room was lovely. Breakfast was just fab!

LOVE THIS HOSTEL!!! They looked after some packages posted from the Uk ahead of our visit and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful during our three night stay. A really nice, homely, relaxed atmosphere, a fantastically varied breakfast, very close to historic centre, washing service, nice wee pool for a refreshing dip & great value for money. Highly recommended....

We had a mix up with our buses so had to stay an extra night in Paraty. Backpacker House Hostel is just two minutes walk from the bus station, so a perfect location. We arrived at breakfast time but were still able to check in just fine. The hostel seemed to me one of the homiest I'd been to. The...

The hostel is located very near the bus terminal but we had trouble finding it when we arrived at night. The owner was very nice, told us a lot about the countries we were about to visit. Our double room with private bedroom was okay but very basic, and not super clean. The hostel is a 5min walk to the...

We walked a little from the bus terminal and saw a sign for this hostel. Stayed 1 night in a private room (double bed) and 1 night in a dorm and we were not disappointed! Pablo (the owner) is super nice and helped us our with all sorts of information, and the breakfast was truly amazing. It's a bit dusty...

We went there in August and I had the pleasure to share breakfast with the family that runs it. They were friendly, really willing to make us feel comfortable, and genuinely nice people. I haven't had this experience in a really long time, I wish I could have stayed longer. They served breakfast early in the morning and we couldn't...

Good location it was easy to walk to the picturesque streets of Parati from there and the price was quite low, but don't expect any luxury it's really basic. Tiny bathroom with poor shower but hot water still, old bedding and cleanliness is very basic also. More suitable for 20yo ish backpackers than older ones or family but for a...

Nice garden with many hammocks and a small pool. The breakfast is so big and it was one of the most delicious ones we had in brazil. The owner is also very nice and friendly. The location is near the bus station and around the corner there is a small and delicious pizza restaurant. Great place to hang out.
