Staff and hammocks
Beds weren't the best
As mentioned in the title one of the best things about this place is the dining area. Because it is located on the beach they have got a spot that sits out right over the water and looks down the beach. It's location is also right at the start of the nature trail that leads to the famous Lopes Mendes Beach. Breakfast was good and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Every night they cook meals for the hostel, which is good if you dont want to cook, but bad if you do as it means the kitchen is shut from 6pm. The price of the dinners i thought was a bit steep - nothing too bad, just more than you could pay else where or if you cooked yourself. The place is kept fairly clean and you feel safe there. Of course you feel safe everywhere on Ilha Grande. It is also supposed to be the main party place to go on the island, although I didnt spend much time there and never noticed any real parties which was fine by me as i wasnt there for that.
Being located at the end of the beach means you have to walk along the sand to get to it, which is annoying for a couple of reasons. one, obviously its not the easiest to walk on sand, especially if you are carrying big bags - and good luck if you have a case and not a rucksack. Secondly it means you are constantly bringing sand into the hostel and your room. This consequently means that the hostel is not the cleanest it could be as they are constantly having to sweep up sand. It is a little bit more expensive than other places but it's not too bad. Be warned there are two locations for Che Largato on the island, the dorms are at the end of the beach and the private rooms are on the main streets. Know where you are going so you are not walking back and forth through the sand with all your bags in the searing heat like i was ;)
Nice view, quiet spot, nice ppl
15min to the center/ market, nothing to play (pool table, cards,..), wifi barely works
Perfect place, with breathtaking views, clean and comfortable. A bit impersonnal and the breakfast could be better. But hard to expect more for the reasonable price.
Amazing view from the room Clean bathroom and room Breakfast in the balcony next to the ocean.. so pleasing :)
Terrible internet connection Breakfast inclouded a lot of passion fruit, but not inclouded ham or cheese
Location was very convenient from the boat, bathrooms were clean and many social activities (every night) which was great. Beautiful views over the water also. Overall I would recommend this hostel. It is next door to another hostel (whose name I forget) but the bathrooms at the other place were just foul and disgusting so I'd definitely recommend Che Lagarto over its adjacent hostel.
Many of the staff barely spoke English which you'd kind if think would be a requirement for a hostel, since there are backpackers from all over the world. They didn't have a proper luggage storage which was secure, bags were just left in the lobby before checkin/after checkout which felt a bit unsafe.
Great location with views over the port of Abrao, the village and the mountain! Lively - full of young people, music, young, cheerful atmosphere Staff members - simple and nice Breakfast area great!
Breakfast is very poor - but I guess because the price of the room is so low, you can not expect more regardless of whether you stay in a room with 10 people or 3 the price of the room is almost the same When it gets dark, its a little frightening to walk from the village to the hostel. Its only a 10 minute walk, but in the dark, sometimes there are some weird local guys wondering around the beach (but we were two girls alone, so...)
I loved the friendly & helpful staff and location.
There were no instructions on how to get to the hostel, once you arrive on the island. Especially, when I arrived super late at night. Luckily I met some people who walked me to the location.
Rooms cleaned daily.
Staff were totally indifferent and communication was very very difficult due to lack of interest and poor English. They were inefficient and unhelpful. Cold shower and location was a bit outside the centre.
