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

We went for lunch here a couple of times and its pretty good. All you can eat buffet for about 15 reais. We are vegan and had lots of options. If I was backpacking I would definately stay here. Good social vibe and great view of the lagoa.

I liked it there. The Hostel has spectacular views of the consolação lagoon. The rooms are ok, overall clean and have good beds, old but comfortable. The bathrooms are always being cleaned and I had no problem at all with anything cleaning-related, but they are few and you are perpetually getting up earlier and earlier to avoid the crowd at...
