“Great accomodation in Buzios!”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

Phoenix Hostel in Buzios was a fantastic place to stay! It is clean with nice spacious rooms and bathrooms. There is a nice outside area with a clean pool and a bar. Good breakfast and decent kitchen for guest's own use. The photos on the Internet do not do it justice! Fairly good wifi. Jonas is amazing and very accomodating! The private boat trips organised through him are a win! He was more of a friend in Buzios than anything else! Very close to one of the beaches but a little way out of town. However, it is a very quick and easy route into town using the cheap shuttle services that go in and out daily. If I was going back to Buzios I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else!

I have genuinely had the best stay here out of all the hostels of 3months of travelling.it's clean to the max which is so important and also very airy!upon arrival we were given a four person dorm which was perfect!it's like staying at a hotel but alot more personal.the owner is great always out of his way to help you.the pool and garden are beautiful and the light and spacious reception/living area is great to chill in.they also had families which I think is always a good sign when at a hostel.location is great near geriba beach and a ten minute,BR 2 van journey to the town centre.had many chilled out days and it's everything we could want in a hostel.

My wife and stayed for a week and didn't want to leave. The owner (who looks remarkably like Russell Crowe in Master & Commander) was most welcoming and always happy to help and make recommendations. Rooms are modern, clean, and very relaxing with a private balcony and hammock. Breakfast is great, and it's only a two (2) block walk to the beach and public transport. Terix the dog is also very welcoming, making the stay feel all the more comfortable.

Room Tip: Every Saturday they host a BBQ for $30BRA p.p. which is well worth it, and a great chance to meet ot...

Reviewed 10 October 2011

the owner Jonas is lovely and very accommodating, the hostal is brand new and very tidy. very relaxed atmosphere and 5min walk to the beach. to get to all the boutiques and shops you just need to take a 10min bus ride from up the road which is cheap. my only suggestion would be for there to be a bit more information about what to do in buzios provided at the hostal.

Reviewed 22 June 2011

Buzios is a beautiful town, and as a gem is a bit overrun with tourists and high-octane hotels, especially during high season.. the peninsula is surrounded with beaches so I decided to stay closer to the surf beach Geriba.. most of the hotels/pousadas are a bit cold and tight, with some decent amenities - yet command some $400/night and up. So a woman on a bus told me about Phoenix Hostel that just opened.. and it's the best advice I could have gotten. In a lovely 2 story house, the staff is charismatic, wonderfully helpful and multi-lingual (i want to improve my portugese, but not at the cost of missing a flight ;).. and the price is far more reasonable. I don't have much experience with hostels, but this one seems quite nice.. and am happy to travel without fancy tv's and the cool breeze negates any need for a/c. Check in with the owner Jonas, a great resource on the history of the town.. and on logistics.. with the $ u save, rent a scooter. The place is tricky to find, so print out the map from their website and it'll guide u in.. or walk around lookin like a schmuck (me).
