I am right now cycling along the coast of Brazil and stayed in a really nice hostel a couple of days ago that is so nice, that I thought I would give it a mention here.
It’s located on Marsias Beach in the state of Sao Paulo. This is a real surfer beach and very popular with brazilian surfers. I had no idea about that when I came and stopped there. I just needed a place to stay for the night before I continued my bicycle ride up the coast of Brazil towards Salvador.
Maresias Beach is very nice.
I found the Maresias hostel purely by chance as I was cycling up and down the few roads that the village has.
I had asked in a couple of hotels before, but they were just a little too pricey for my liking, but the Maresias Hostel had a very fair price, even if I was not asking for a dorm, but a private room, as I am getting a little too old for dorm rooms, as I need some proper sleep before tomorrow’s bicycle ride.
The price I was given for a single room was less than half the price of the cheapest hotel I had asked at.
Nice pool area at Maresias Hostel.
And I was not let down with bad service. The place was really pleasant and had very nice common areas, a nice pool area and it was decorated in a very tasteful way. The staff at Maresias Hostel was super nice too and exactly the kinda people that you want to meet when you come to a reception desk.

It’s a place that has all the advantages that you see in a hostel, in terms of good social life and the chance of meeting fellow travelers, but it also has the chance to get a private place at a very good rate.
The place is located one block from the beach.
I stay in hotels/hostels/guest houses/resorts more than 300 days a year and it’s not that often that I decide to give a place a mention on my blog, but this place deserves it and you should stay at Maresias Hostel if you ever travel the coastline of Sao Paulo.
You won’t regret it.
