Bottom Line

All 11 private or shared dorm-style rooms are simply decorated, but clean. Dorm-style come with bunk beds and shared bathrooms. Not all of the rooms offer free towels and air-conditioning. Features include a free hot buffet breakfast, communal kitchen, a beautiful external common area where guests can barbecue and interact.

Scene

 An intimate hostel with rustic eclectic accents and a cozy outdoor area

From the street, the hostel looks like a private home behind an orange wall. The rustic decor is typical of a local beach house, and has an eclectic variety of furniture and art for an intimate atmosphere. The common areas where guests can interact, watch TV, or just relax are decorated with a dark brown couch and an armchair, a wood table, a card table, and a modern flat-screen TV and a computer. Outside, things are just as cozy. The garden features a cozy soft-sided gazebo and colorful hammocks, plus interesting art like a fish mobile and Buddhist statue. The space is inviting for guests who want to socialize and relax after the beach. Most guests are families and travelers of all ages who are looking for an affordable and clean place to sleep.

The best feature of Hostel Marina dos Anjos is the location. It's on a residential street one block from the beach and Praia dos Anjos, where boats start their well-known tours. Restaurants, bars, markets, and drugstores are within a five-minute walk, while the bus station is about a 10-minute walk. It's about a 15-minute walk to Praia Grande, a famous surf point. The city center, where banks and stores are located, and Mirante do Pontal do Atalaia are about a 10-minute drive from from the hostel. Two of the most visited beaches of Arraial, Prainhas do Pontal and Praia do Forno, are a 20-minute drive. Ilha dos Porcos and Ilha do Frances are reached by boat, usually on a day trip for those who want to practice scuba diving. Cabo Frio International Airport is about 20 minutes by car.
