I had the best time staying here. The staff couldn't have been better and it felt like a crazy, amazing home from home in paradise. Clean with hot showers and central location. You must stay here if you're going through itacare

Bananas is the best place to stay in itacare! the staff are amazing and it's easy to meet fellow travellers and arrange trips to nearby waterfalls. The beaches are within walking distance and the hostel is located on the main street where you have everything you need. The best breakfast I've had in south america! :)

Great people in this hostel, the owners and volunteers do their best to make you feel confortable. Rooms are ok. The garden and bar area are great. I would love to visit this place again sometime. Completely recommended!

A super cool hostel with a lot of good vibes and heart! Awesome, nice, friendly staff that make sure you will get the best of the town, if it is beaches, waterfalls, restaurants, parties or whatever might have been your reason to come to Itacare. Bananas elevates the place with their jam-session every Thursday and provides us with one of...

We were staying at Che Lagarto hostel across the road and we visited Bananas one evening for their music/drinks night (yes they have a weekly music event, along with weekly poker nights and other events). The hosts were extremely welcoming from the get go and we instantly knew we had booked into the wrong hostel. We changed hostel that same...

Bananas Hostel is my favourite place to stay in the world. The garden is beautiful and the bar is always open. I stayed in a room with a disco light this time, which made me smile. The staff are super friendly and helpful - they are always up for giving advice on where to go, or playing a game of...

Good location and the owners and staff are the best! It's ok-clean and they serve good breakfast. There is a nice garden where you can rest in the hammocks or enjoy the music at night as they sometimes organize jam sessions. If you travel solo in Itacare, make sure to stay at Bananas to meet people and have the best...

My buddy and I stayed at Bananas hostel during our surf trip in Itacare and it was probably the best hostel experience we have had on our travels. We originally had only a little over a week booked but ended up staying for 3 weeks after having such a good time. The atmosphere is great with a weekly Thursday night...

Really cool place if you want to party and live it up!!!! Not a place if you want quiet, but that is not why I went there. Two cool bars within two minutes distance. Pete knows all the right people! The garden is cool and Pete is very knowledgeable about plants and gardening. Poker night, Jam night, snooker table and...

I tried to stay here but they were closed for renovations but the owners told me to come by whenever and hang out. I spent most of my nights and some days hanging out at bananas drinking, watching football, playing pool and just hanging out. There are a great mix of people here and when you come to itacare, I...
