Great location just in front of the beach, unfortunately this is only one positive. Staff at the reception is useless, or they don't know or they guess, they look unhappy when I asked questions... No laundry amenities, no shuttle service which are mentioned on www.booking.com. Kitchen was veeeery dirty, very poor equipment!!!

Hi Sandra - during the month that you and Paul visited the hostel (Feb 2015) we suffered important personnel changes. This is not at all an excuse, but merely an explanation, and we would like to offer our sincere apologies. We have since made important improvements in service and comfort, that are being recognised by our clients. In case you´d...

Recently we visited Paraty and booked accommodation re above. On arrival the room allocated to our group was a 6 bed in 1 room and 4 bed in ajoining room and 1 toilet/shower combined off that. They had put another bed in the 6 bed room which took away access to the lockers and no room for luggage. The lockers...

The facility is pretty big with pool and numerous rooms, in-house Pizzeria and a Bar. But I completely missed the spirit. Perhaps because it was low season and nothing was going on... An advantage of the location is the beach and sea right on the other side of the street - Kanu and stand up paddling facilities are provided right...

Stayed 4 days here. Had a wonderful time. Had everything we wanted, food was great and the staff particularly Pepe we amazing. Couldn't recommend highly enough. Town is a 15 minute walk away but most of what you need is along the beach opposite . Chris

We spend only one night at the hostel in a 10-bed dorm (35 Real including breakfast). The hostel is about 20-30min walking or 5min by bus from the historical centre of Paraty and in my opinion it's not worthwhile. It is exactly in front of the beach but neither the beach nor the water seemed very clean to me. Therefore,...

Bittersweet stay at this hostel. Location is good right across from the beach with access to non motorised activities such as kayaking and stand up paddle. A short walk to town as well. The staff were a mixed bunch with Peppi from Peru being most organised and helpful and then Mumma plastic surgery with no clue but a big smile...

The hostel has a real "beach house-look to" it. Since it wasn't high season, we got an upgrade of our room. The room was not extremely spacious, but it was definitely OK. The hostel is located directly at the beach, so you can be sure you will wake up to a nice view. A downside is that it is not...

We have been travelling around south America for 5 months now and while the staff were very nice it was probably he worst hostel we stayed in.

We stayed in a lovely double room for our first two nights. Such a comfy bed with two big huge pillows each. Private bathroom too. Beautifull wood finish everywhere, really warming :-) we moved to a dorm for the next few nights and found it just as comfy. I would highly recommend this hostel. I felt so relaxed and happy...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the seafront, the Sereia do Mar is a unique place in a fascinating scenario: the Jabaquara Bay, a beach of calm waters and unique horizon, just a few minutes walk from the historic center of Paraty. Enjoy a full and tasty breakfast when you wake up, get close to an island in one of our kayaks, dance along during our live shows, try our delicious pizzas and caipirinhas ... these are just some of the great things that await you when you stay with us. All in a familiar and contagiously cheerful atmosphere with a staff that loves Paraty and enjoys to provide you an unforgettable vacation! Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian. Guests under 18 permitted only in private rooms(unless an entire dorm is rented). ... more   less

“Many rooms are in the front towards the pool and restaurant. But there are also rooms at the back which are more quiet.”
