Pretty much faultless hostel! Stayed here for the World Cup so was very pricey at that time, but even then more reasonable than most accommodation in brazil during this period, so safe to say it's good value during any other time. Stayed in a double room (the parrot one) which was excellent! Best mattress I've had yet in a South... More

I stayed here last month and the place had bedbugs. The bathrooms were dirty and never had soap to wash your hands, the receptionist was miserable and very unfriendly. Despite all the mess the maids were always eating doing nothing or cooking. Why were they not cleaning the bathrooms put toilet paper. Complete waste of money.

This place was nice for its location to a laundromat, supermarket & bars/restaurants. Took a cab here from the bus station - so the driver found it for me. Check-in went well, even though there was a blackout & no computer usage. They checked me in an hour early so I could clean up. The rooms are small however no... More

I stayed at Eco hostel for almost 6 weeks when I first arrived to Porto Alegre. I loved it!! The owners Mario and Vanessa went out of their way to make me feel at home. The hostel is clean and the outdoor area is very relaxing with a pool. On Saturdays they have a pub crawl allowing you to meet... More

When I saw the pictures at the website, I thought the hostel was nice and clean. But when me and my boyfriend arrived there, our bedroom (double bed private) was fine, but the bathroom... well, it was disgusting, and CERTAINLY, nobody had cleaned it (who knows for how long it had been dirty?) - there was hair on the drain...

Now, im moving to another hostel in the city in hope to find a better place. According to a guy I met, they´ve changed management, and thats why things have gone worse... More

The hostel and staff are very nice. Location isn't bad - bit of a trek to the main centre but actually the adjacent road is excellent for bars, restaurants and a really good supermarket. Our room was really small but had a balcony which made it feel a bit bigger. Breakfast was ok, but mainly cake. There's a decent garden... More

I stayed here for a couple nights in June 2012. The beds are small and cramped, but the comforters are big and comfortable. Location is decent, but it was still hard to find. Nice TV room. The staff was definitely helpful. I remember getting in at 5 AM and wasn't charged an extra night.

This hostel certainly has potential, but it is unfortunately unfilled currently. On arrival the place looks grt. Nice, welcoming outside. Lovely common areas. Friendly staff. The dorm was ok, (8bed). The beds were clean and comfy but down the sides of the beds was filthy :( The kitchen was clean and practical but lacked space so at times you had... More

Eco Hostel, well, where can I start!? It is fairly new, and I have to say it is by far the best place you could stay when coming to PA (I know from experiencing other hostels in the city). I was actually one of the very first guests to stay there. My stay should have been for a week only,... More
