We stayed for 3 nights and were lucky to get the ensuite room and had no problems with the air con, in fact i thought it looked new and at least you had control of the remote unlike some hostels. Everything was always clean, the kitchen was very well equipped and the breakfast was fairly simple but fresh (only bread,... More

We stayed three nights after Carnival, and the place was overbooked for our first night. We spent the first night in one bed for the two of us. We were told we would only pay for one bed, but we ended up just getting a discount, but not the entire price of the bed off. The place has two 8-person... More

Full kitchen available to anyone and drinking water is provided as a small bonus to guests. Betters speak some portugese here if you have any questions for... More

I really liked this hostel, stayed 2 nights and we had the 6-bed dorm to ourselves as the other guests were in other dorms so that was nice! Good size rooms, clean bathrooms and a good, if simple, breakfast. Good location between the bus station and old town. Not far at all to walk anywhere. Has a very relaxed feel.... More

It iwas actually a home of people that they turned into a hostel and that is the feeling it has. And a sweet home at that. You feel at home: kitchen accessible and extremely well equipped, rooms are clean, spacious enough and air-conditioned. Perfect location, and the people who work here add such a special character.

I was supposed to stay only a couple of nights but I ended up staying 4. It is a very clean hostel and Carmen takes care of his guests very well. Offer Free Wifi, Sky Tv, delicious breakfast (fresh made juice, milk, coffee, 2 sandwich with cheese and ham and sometimes a piece of cake). It was usually not a... More
