The Hostel has a bright, fun and lively atmosphere staffed by knowledgeable university students. The hostel consists mostly of dorm beds with quality mattresses, quality white sheets and blankets and daily cleaning. All the basics are covered including a... More

This was just what I needed after a long exhausting bus journey. Professional and friendly staff, clean and safe and with a very nice and welcoming atmosphere. Also the first hostel I've seen on my travels in SA that recycle garbage! I could really recommend this one, either you are looking for a place to rest in privacy or to... More

Really awesome place, in the heart of 'cidade baixa', close to everything. Lovely people working there, and the time I've stayed, I made friends from all kind of places! The rooms are good and comfortable, safe for your bags and stuff. The only negative point I thought it's the breakfast, it could be a bit better, but it's alright! Enjoyed... More

I stayed at this hostel for around a month. Its located in a bohemian neighborhood at Porto Alegre very close to restaurants and bars. However, the hostel itself is located in a quite nice street. The hostel house is big and very charming: very comfortable living room with nice sofas, outside hammocks located in a big garden and a pool... More

Porto Alegre Eco Hostel is one of the better hostels I've stayed at in all Brazil. Highlight is the jungle-like backyard with its swimming pool. Helpful and kind staff, clean rooms, lots of windows, big private bathrooms, decent breakfast (which I'm told may soon offer cappuccino and tapioca to-order), quiet at night, centrally located in cool Cidade Baixa neighborhood, nearby...

I have been living in the Eco Hostel for more than two weeks and I don't regret it. It provides kind of a family-atmosphere. Especially for young people it is nice to live there, because you meet people from all around the world and most of the staff members are young. The staff is available and very helpful 24/7 and...

Me and my friends stayed for a week, and we were definitely satisfied. Good service, good atmosphere (there's an acoustic guitar for guests!) and great location. The swimming pool was freezing cold, though - for hot days only.

This is a very cozy and cheap hostel at the heart of the best part of the city: Cidade Baixa. It offers you great access to POA's main attractions and it's located near the best bars, restaurants and night life in town. Their staff is also amazing: very helpful, considerate and friendly. We had a problem in our double room... More
