The hostel is excelent in its localization and structure. Near the central area of the Lagoa da Conceição, there are banks, restaurants and many supermarkets around it. Also, you can go quite easily to the beaches in the south of the island by bus or taxi, since they are really near. The prices are really fair (A caipirinha was R$6)... More

Best hostel I stayed in Brazil. Location is perfect, supermarket in 10mtrs, centre in 200mtrs. Hostel has a nice vibe, felt like home and met a lot of new friends. Staff are experienced backpackers, so they know what you want. Ross has some great travel stories. Enjoy!

loved our stay here, staff were very friendly with good English with good helpful knowledge. Bathrooms and social areas were spacious as well as a large kitchen. Very close to the Lagoa and 30 min walk to the nearest beach so good location.

Maybe we visited in a quiet time (just after carnival), but I expected more given the reviews and how great hostels can be. No complaints - everything was clean, not too loud so could sleep, some socialising, but just not amazing. Location is ok bit realised that staying further away from the inland and transport links may be better than... More
