Minha experiência no Dona Benedita foi muito especial. O Hostel é organizado, limpo, as tarefas são bem distribuídas, ótima localização e com uma vista que só ele tem.
Valeria e Jorge foram ótimos anfitriões e o Bart, dog fofo que adora dar um rolê e que ficava curtindo preguiça no puff comigo.
Fiz amigos que levarei para a vida, a galera muito astral, super de boa e companheiros.

O hostel é muito bom. Conheci outros na cidade e este para mim foi disparado o melhor. A localização é perfeita - na beira mar - a vista é ótima, os quartos são bons, o café é excelente, tudo é realmente muito bom. Quanto aos donos, o jorge e a Valéria, eles são sensacionais. Me receberam muito bem, tive boas conversas com o Jorge e a Valéria, além de muitos momentos divertidos. Saio de Ubatuba com dois amigos na bagagem. Agradeço demais e recomendo à todos!
