A great little hostel off the main drag, so it's nice and quiet but it's the perfect location - not far from anything. The hostel owners were super friendly and the whole place was clean and tidy. Would highly recommend it!

Awesome place, rooms for five people with a bathroom. Great for a holiday with friends or family! Delicious breakfast and Laíssa and Pedro made us fell at home :) Close enough to the city/ nightlife and the beach... Worth the visit!

We had such a great time at buddy's, and wished we could stay there longer. The service is great (they take you to the beaches, arrange surfing classes etc), very clean rooms and a very charming host (Pike!) with ambitous plans for his hostel. We can't wait to visit again. Best place to stay in Itacare.
