Inspiring you to live your best life through travel

Hostel Review: Biergarten Hostel, Ilha Grande, Brazil

Set in the Abraao area of Ilha Grande, Brazil, the Biergarten Hostel has a lot to offer in terms of free amenities, fun, and a fabulous beach location. The property was built in 2010, making it one of the more modern hostels in the city.

What Makes it a Biergarten Hostel?

The owner, Vitor, had a German stepfather, which is the inspiration for the hostel bar, which has a mix of international and Brazilian beers, wines, and caipirinhas. At night, it is an island hotspot for locals and tourists.

The Rooms

Vitor makes sure the rooms are immaculate each day, so you never have to worry about dingy sheets or dirty floors. There are two dorm-type rooms and 1 private room, all spacious and simple with hints of yellow, orange, blue, and pink to give it an upbeat touch. Beds are comfortable, and each has it’s own reading light and outlet.

Making Friends

Because of the intimate size of the hostel (one 8-person dorm and two private rooms), it is easy to make close friends very quickly. Moreover, the owner, Vitor, is very helpful and friendly and will assist in helping to plan social activities.

This enormous meal was only about $12

Location, Location, Location

Being only a block from the beach and walking distance from almost any activity you’d want to do (kayaking, hiking, water sports, boat tours), you really can’t beat the location of this hostel. Moreover, it is attached to one of the best and most inexpensive restaurants/bars on the island. You can get a buffet-style meal with an array of local and international options, and the price depends upon the weight.

Free Extras

When backpackers choose hostels, the first thing they usually ask is, “what’s included?”. At Biergarten Hostel, use of the luggage room, internet, linens, towels, hot showers, and an expansive breakfast including eggs, fresh fruit, sweet cakes, breads, meat, cheese, cookies, cereal, coffee, tea, and juice is included in the room rate. For some free relaxation, you should also take advantage of the luxurious hammocks located on the terrace.
