Staying at Che Lagarto Hostel Paraty Brazil

Traveling to Paraty took us about 5-hour by bus from Rio de Janeiro. Tired from our journey, I immediately checked my sketch of the direction to our hostel. I began figuring out how we can reach it from the bus terminal. My buddy and I lost our phones in Rio de Janeiro so while traveling in Brazil we only rely in our print outs and drafts most of the time. Che Lagarto Hostel Paraty was our accommodation. We got lost finding the street where the hostel is at first. But good thing, two men on their bikes approached us and offered to help us find our hostel. Apparently, Che Lagarto Hostel  Paraty was just an easy 5-minute walk from the bus terminal.

It was already late when we arrived in Paraty. The hostel was already on its high time for socials. Other travellers were in the common area – enjoying their drinks. I would be happy to join but I was already feeling tired that time. I wanted to go to my bed first to rest then probably mingle the next day. We went straight to the reception area to check in to our room. Staff warmly welcomed us. After presenting photocopies of our passports and filling up the guest form, they handed to us our room key. Then, one of the front desk guy mentioned about the house rules. After that, he accompanied us to our room located at the extension of the hostel just across the street.
