This hostel is in an awesome location and overlooks the lagoon. Its a short walk into town and the beach. The included breakfast was great as was the free caipirinha each night. However, we stayed in a 4 person dorm that was attached to a larger 10 or so person dorm. There was a single bathroom for the 14 people... More

Water was off while we were there which made stay unpleasant for us for using bathroom/ showers/ cooking. Good location. Staff are helpful. Breakfast in the bar is very good, lunch was advertised daily but was not provided. Nights out organised by hostel are more expensive than if you organise taxi/ book ticket yourself!

Only downside is you need to catch 2 buses to get there and its a fair walk (5-10 minutes) to the beach. Breakfast is very good, they give you a free capirinha every night, place is kept clean, there are a few toilets unlike some hostels I´ve been to and it was fairly cheap to stay there. Ok so they...

There is so much to say about this place; good, bad and down right annoying. The Good: Location is a massive win for this establishment. The views over Lagoa da Conceicao are simply incredible, providing a beautiful location to chill during the day or night, read a book, indulge in food or simply drink and socialise. The lake and a...

Had a great few nights at sunset. Its a really social hostel with a great bar/restaurant, TV area and small pool and sun deck. The food is pretty good, including the standard free brazilian breakfast, the BBQ and buffet are definitely worth the money. Guest kitchen was a bit dirty but well equipped. Free caipirinhas each night are strong, and... More

You can pay it off at anytime or on checkout. Free breakfast which is substantial and filling. For 20 Reals you can enjoy the all you can... More
