I stayed here for 4-5 days in February and had a great experience. Great atmosphere, affordable price, distant walk from the village, close to Pontal beach. Chef, the manager cooks up great meals. I have wrote about the hostel, and my experience in Itacare in my blog... check it out! http://kpari080.tumblr.com/post/112639545750/surf-power-em-itacare

I arrived having driven through a slum and was met with two locked metal gates and a ferocious, savage hound guarding the property. The owner wasn't here so made his mate who seemed to just live there sort me out. To be fair he was an ok guy. The room was filthy with bugs all over the sheets, a messy...

What is there to say! No one answered door. We travelled all day and walked from the centre of towne and guess what, no answer except from a barking angry Rottweiler. Sign is not visible. Nice area except for rubbish in front area.

We stayed 3 weeks and came back for another 2 because we couldn't stay away. We haven't found anywhere quite like it in the 2 months we've travelled Brazil. Big rooms and comfy beds,...

I am a million years late with this review but I have to write one for Ben's Place as it was truly one of the best places I have ever stayed at while travelling. My boyfriend and I were on the road in Brazil for two months and found ourselves falling in love with this place. We had an amazing...

This is a great place to stay in Itacare! Unlike most of the accommodations in Itacare, Ben's Place is located in one of the local neighborhoods of the town. Its just a short ten minute walk or a quick moto-taxi away from the downtown/tourist area of the town. The place is beautiful, there has been so much love put into...
