Our chill-out area is equipped with sky TV play station, book exchange and ping-pong. If you're feeling like being a beach bum Sereia's the place to do it - laze about in a hammock or catch up on your tan while sipping on your Welcome Caipirinha on the beach front.

Beach BBQ I hear you ask? Look no further than our Argentinian owner who rustles up an authentic Argentinian BBQ. What's more, you can have this, sight seeing, all the caipirinhas you can drink while enjoying superb DJ sets, on our Boat Party!! All-Day party around the bay of Paraty with friends you know and friends you have yet to meet. At the end of the day, come back to the hostel, and continue the party through the night on the beach.
With our help you can scale trees in the second biggest natural reserve in Brazil, trek through wilderness or bike to the waterfalls where you can slide down natural waterslides, swing from tree to tree or bathe in the shade of the natural pools. Nature lover? We recommend: hidden beaches, off the beaten track walks, a little peace of Brazilian jungle - on horseback, bike or simply on foot.
Take our jeep tour to sample local 'cachaça', visit orchid farms, and the Caminho do Ouro, a rich part of Brazil's history. A town soaked in history, Paraty was built on the wealth of this gold trade, at the museum 'Casa da Cultura' you will discover the history of this town.
Paraty has a story to tell around every corner, on the way to town stop at the Morro do Forte a couple of minutes from the hostel a defensive fort used to keep the Francis Drakes and Jack Sparrows from trying to loot the gold.
At night time after warming up with a few drinks in the hostel, we're happy to bring you into town and show you around the night life in Paraty and insider info on the local hot spots! So enjoy the beach by day, do some exploring of Paraty 's hidden gems and then come and enjoy the company of good friends, great music and make some memories of your own in our home away from home!
