Huge thanks to Beto, Diego and whole team at Galeao for my stay in Itacare. Hospitality was second to none from organising surf trips, visit to cacao farm, car rental, restaurant recommendations and hostel itself has clean rooms, fast wifi, amazing breakfast and all for good price. Loved this place - will be coming back for sure!

WOW, this place is so cool and perfect, and the people is what makes it awesome. My four friends and I booked this hostel for a couple of nights, but ended up staying for a week or more!

We stayed at the poussada Galeao for 3 nights. Location is premium just behind the main street. The place is run by Beto that will go to the extra mile and give you the best tips about Itacare and its area. Rooms are clean and very nice as well. Breakfast is outstanding, especially the home made freshly prepared brazilian tapiocas.
