We stayed at the hostel for 8 days and are really happy to have chosen the place! It's a little bit like being at home. The staff is very kind and helpful, rooms are very nice. The construction is almost all made of wood, well planned. Breakfast is made of very fresh ingredients. We arrived from the Hostel yesterday and...

Me and five friends stayed here for 4 days. The free breakfast is delicious. There´s a clean kitchen to cook in, a supermarket nearby, and its right on the beach. The staff are so nice and did us a ton of favors while we were there.

We stayed here for four nights in the low season. The hostel is across the road from a beach so it is about 15 minutes' walk out of the centre. It is very safe and fairly clean though the staff often didn't replace the toilet paper or seemed to make the beds not very frequently. Ask for Julia at the...

We loved the location, right across from the beach. Walk into town was nice, only one hill. Usually took 10-15 minutes. Staff at hotel were extremely helpful, and everyone at the front desk spoke English!

Sereia do mar is right opposite the beach which is absoloutely great but is a bit of a walk from the centre of Paraty. The bar is fun in the evenings and they serve the most amazing pizza. The dorm we stayed in was dark and cramped, a little dirty and my bunkbed was so dangerous it almost collapsed. If...

Hostel is really well kitted out and in a great location provided you don't mind walking to town. The only sour note or problem was the mistakes that were made on the happy hour bar bill for a number of our group and the attitude of the receptionist when we questioned it. Otherwise, a nice play to stay and chill...

Loved this hostel. Very homely and boho. The owners are so friendly and helpful and include you in everything if you like. Right on the best beach in Paraty and 15 minutes walk from the centre. Great pizza's too!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the seafront, the Sereia do Mar is a unique place in a fascinating scenario: the Jabaquara Bay, a beach of calm waters and unique horizon, just a few minutes walk from the historic center of Paraty. Enjoy a full and tasty breakfast when you wake up, get close to an island in one of our kayaks, dance along during our live shows, try our delicious pizzas and caipirinhas ... these are just some of the great things that await you when you stay with us. All in a familiar and contagiously cheerful atmosphere with a staff that loves Paraty and enjoys to provide you an unforgettable vacation! Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian. Guests under 18 permitted only in private rooms(unless an entire dorm is rented). ... more   less

“Many rooms are in the front towards the pool and restaurant. But there are also rooms at the back which are more quiet.”
