Books Rehab Hostel

Our hostel has the atmosphere of a former summer retreat, the house still preserves its initial feeling of a family's home. The hostel has free wi-fi, a common room with a cable Tv, and a well stocked kitchen, we have some ever expanding collection. Outside the house there is a terrace with comfortable hammocks where you can spend your lazy afternoons with a good book. There is also a big courtyard where you can enjoy the warm summer nights during one of our regular BBQs. The small town where the hostel is located, Arraial do Cabo, is really safe, quiet and has a chilled atmosphere. It is a cape, which means is surrounded by some amazing beaches with blue clear water. The main activities are: hiking, surfing, diving, snorkeling, and fishing.

The atmosphere was great, and i learned so much and grwon as a humam being with the things i've lived there. I am greateful for everything. The only area that needs improvements is the organization of the working hours, this way everybody is happy and satisfied.




Estar en Books fue de lo mejor. Los chicos son simplemente increíbles y en cuestión de segundos me sentí como en casa, tienen un corazón gigante. El lugar es precioso, pero sin duda la gente es lo que hacía que el Hostel tuviera ese "Bonustrack". Las tareas son simples y hacerlas con el resto del staff es muy divertido. Aprendí mucho de ellos. Por las noches es común cenar todos juntos o estar con los huéspedes y planear alguna salida al otro día. Voy a extrañar mucho preparar los desayunos, las charlas con Patrick y escuchar cantar por las mañanas a Alex! Dos genios ♥ ♥ ♥.




I had the time of my life. It was the best vacations EVER! Alex and Bruno are amazing people and the hostel energy is beyond words. I surely recommend Books Rehab to everybody.




i stayed three weeks in Books Rehab (if i hadn't made other plans before) Iwould definetely recommend it for those who are looking for a laidback experience, who are open-minded and sociable. Bruno and Alex are very cool guys. whats's very special is that they genuinely go beyond the commercial side of the hostel and treat each guest (and worldpacker) treated like a friend. other than that: breathtaking beaches, cool and laidback BBQ, a quaint Brazilia beach town, boat parties, what more could you ask for? Ps: i'd highly recommend that you speak somespanish or at least portugnol to go there :)




One of my favourite places in the world because of the energy of the place. Alex and Bruno are good Hosts, for sure I have their friendship for my whole life. I had the opportunity of diving and also I developed cooking skill.
Alex taught me a lot about common sense and how to live in community. He believes in freedom what is amazing because you can be very helpful and creative at the Hostel, you see what the person needs and you just do it. I only recommend align expectations before you start doing volunteer.
I enjoyed so much that I went to stay only 2 weeks but I spent 3 months!
