I really don't understand why this place is #1 on Tripadvisor. We arrived here after reading good reviews about this place. It was saying that there is a good English speaker worker here and that it is a good hostel. When we arrived we heard that the owner of the hostel gone for vacation for a month and we met... More

Very nice hostel, not just empty room with beds, but U can feel the hand of the Owner. The Owner - one of the nicest person I met in Brazil: she took us to samba party, showed everything on the map, told us where to go, what to eat etc. Really, really helpful and friendly! Really clean, really pleasurable. If... More

We only stayed one night. The lady working there was lovely and really helpful. We had a double room which was very small and the bed was very average - 3 mattresses stacked ontop of each other. The shared bathroom was really run down - I got an electric shock from the shower and the bench which held the basin... More

Caritas, the owner of the hostel, is incredibly friendly and will go out of her way to make sure you know your way around town. She was also very helpful both for logistical and moral support while I awaited some lost luggage. I appreciate that she actively asked what she could do to improve the place, it can only mean...

The hostel is a pretty small hostel, with family type atmosphere - the family lives there as well and their friends hang around regularly. It has only 2 bathrooms, both with shower and toilet, no other separate toilet though which created a bit of a hazzle in the morning. The advertisement says that it is international, English is spoken and... More

I arrived in Fortaleza off a late flight, so all I needed was a safe place to sleep for the night. I didn't see much of Fortaleza but I got the impression that the word safe was important after the taxi from the airport had to pass through two armed police checkpoints/roadblocks just to get to the city. Terra da... More

Caritas is her name, she is the owner and also runs this hostel. You will first notice her smile and then her wiliness to help. She is a native of Fortaleza so she knows all the ins and out. You will find her as early as 8:30am cleaning the place, the other times she is there helping out like a... More

I loved too much stay there, with so much hospitality and kindness! A hostel always sins about privacy and intimacy but there, on this place you can feel how you're at home! I recommend it!
