“Caters for all!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I arrived here after three months of travelling around the world and it was the best decision i could have made. The place was homely with a kitchen to cook, informal staff but extremely helpful. The hostel overlooks the beach and it is insanely cheap for what you get. I had planned for two nights which became more than two weeks and loved every minute. Also a great place to meet people!

Stayed here with two friends recently, great atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff. We booked 14-bed room but were upgraded to a smaller one for free since it wasn't very full. Great location, it's right at the beach, we rented some bikes the day we arrived and biked up the coast. The owners offered to pick us up at the station and then dropped us off for free, gave tips on car rentals and took us out at night.

Had the best time at green haven. Great staff, big rooms, clean bathrooms and awesome location. Right across for the beach, free pickup from the bus station, cheap drinks at the bar and plenty of room to play drinking games and meet new friends. Can't wait to come back, will definitely stay again!

Had an amazing time at Green Haven. Staff was very helpful and made sure I enjoyed my time there to the fullest. A real backpackers hostel where the guests are made to feel at home.

Ubatuba is a must see beautiful area between Sao Paulo and Rio full of beaches and rainforest. Plenty of things to do and see that the staff are more than helpful to coordinate.

We visited early June and was made to feel right at home.. the guys take you out to all the best surf spots and drop you in town when needed. On the last night I needed a private room and was offered it at no extra cost thanks to vini. We will definitely visit again

Great hostel with a homely feel. Ubatuba is a great place to check out some awesome beaches and waterfalls as well as catch some good waves.

Vini and his crew make sure all the guests are having a good time and offer transfer services to all the beaches and treks in Ubatuba. They also rent out surf boards and do surf lessons, which is a must do in the capital of Brazilian surf.

The crew at the hostel also know how to have a good time at night, getting the beers and cachaca flowing to create a great social atmosphere.

Green Haven didn't feel like a hostel at all. As soon as I walked in and met Vini and the staff, I felt like a guest in a really cool house. Their energy and enthusiasm created an atmosphere unlike any I have seen in a Brazilian hostel - or anywhere I can remember. If you're into surfing, this is definitely the place to stay. If not, you can hang out at the beach with them or go out to some bars and parties at night. I don't think I would have enjoyed Ubatuba as much if I had stayed elsewhere. I had lots of laughs, great fun, and a chance to relax and unwind. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach out front was wonderful. I only wish I could have stayed a few more days!!!
The place itself is clean, has a big kitchen, laundry room, good wifi, and a huge common area with a bar. There's not much around it but the guys can easily get you to the city center and all of the beautiful beaches in the area for a reasonable price. They're doing a great job and I would love to go back some day!
