Lagoon Backpackers
Reviewed 20 March 2014

I spent 3 nights there and was amazed by the warm, friendly atmosphere of the hostel. it has a huge living room, a big balcony and kitchen, and the owner, renan, makes an amazing bbq dinner for everyone who wants. It's a bit off the center, which I liked a lot though, because it's closer to the wonderful beaches of geriba and ferradurinha where there's no boats and cruiship tourists and the water is cleaner than in the center.

maybe the best place in town for travelers who want to meet new people and have fun. I would go there again any time.

Summer 2013: I picked the hostel based on its low price and great location, but not having read too many reviews of the place I was slightly skeptical and at first booked only for 2 nights. I ended up staying for an entire week and out of the 10s of hostels I spent nights at over the 2 months I spent in South America, Lagoon Backpackers was by far the most memorable experience.

Renan cooked amazing food virtually everyday, lent me his surfboard, helped me get cheap flights to Lima and was an amazing host overall. You're within walking distance from the 2 nicest beaches in Buzios (Ferrarudinha and Geriba), the shop is literally next door, the bus stop to central is also within a stone's throw away, there's a balcony with a great view of the lake that's next to the hostel equipped with a hammock.

In brief I couldn't recommend the hostel any stronger.

Great hostel, people, atmosphere, staff, rooms...Great place. Definitely recommend to anyone heading to Buzios. We all felt very welcome here, a home away from home. The hostel owner cooked some pretty great meals and the bar man is sure to help you knock back a fair few drinks.

Booked one night and stayed another 4 because it was so great there! Renan and Marina are great guys who look after the place very well and make the hostel very cosy and place you feel you want to get stuck for a while. beaches are all around the place. nearest is about 10min walk, next 15min. its not exactly in the center of Buzios, but bus stop is about 3min walk and runs like every 10min. beautiful view from a balcony on a lake and great party here as well. Renan knows how to make great bbq and place to meet new people. Loved it!!!

This hostel really is a magical place. Not only do you have an amazing view of the lagoon which sets you up with the best atmosphere for a great breakfast with fresh fruit juices and fresh bread but the staff is absolutely outstanding. In this hostel you will never feel alone on ostracized, it creates the perfect atmosphere for travelers to meet and enjoy eachothers company. The staff makes sure that everyone is invited to parties on the beach, amazing dinners in the hostel, and they just make the whole experience fun and comfortable. I really felt as if I got more then my moneys worth. Thanks for everything lagoon backpackers!!! Ill miss you all!
