We only stayed here for one night but really liked it. The owner helped us with all our questions, the communal areas were nice, and they didn´t show any annoyance that we were only staying one night.

I would go back, no doubt. When I arrived in Nega Maluca, I initially planned to stay just 2 nights, and have a look around and find eventually another place for a longer stay. I enjoyed my stay in the hostel, so I stayed there for 6 nights. The location is convenient, very close (10mins walking) to the heart of... More

This is a very special pousada with amazing atmosphere and extremely helpful staff. The guy at the reception desk gave us lots of useful advice (along with a photocopied map) what and where to do / not to do, where to buy cheap food, what to see etc. We had a small double-bed ensuite room right at the entrance with...

I give this hostel points for: creating a great atmosphere. Helpful staff. Having air conditioning. Convenient location. Having amenities like a bar, communal kitchen and self-serve laundry. I was there during Carnaval (which of course means that people will be coming in at all hours drunk, and that rates were extremely high). It was easy to go out with people... More

This hostel is really special. The atmosphere is really great and very social. I felt very comfortable and at home immediately. The owner is a long time traveler who is very friendly and really understands the needs of a backpacker. The rooms are comfy and air conditioned and you get your own bed lamp and electric socket. The breakfast is... More

Great hostel. I was there during carnival and it was amazing. The staff and owner are the best. The whole hostel went out as one big group. The whole week week was run really well. Great location in the historic centre too. Recommended all year round.

This is a great hostel, with very helpful owners. There are dorm rooms and double (ensuite) rooms available, with lockers for valuables. The breakfast is better than some hotels I've stayed in - bread, ham, cheese,tomatos, fruit, coffee, natural juice, home-baking! There is FREE wifi and computers, nice common rooms and kitchen, and lots of friendly and funny signs around,... More

The pousada is owned by backpacker and to be honest - it's clearly visible. If you expect cleanliness of Hilton or Intercontinentlal you probably will be dissapointed (book Hilton instead) but if you look for a place to spend a night, rest and meet fellow backpacker you probably couldn't find better place. The atmosphere of this place is excellent. Room... More

Staff was helpful, breakfast was good, had a really nice atmosphere and I loved the animals in the hostel (but it did contribute to some of the grime). Thanks for a good stay!
