Cute little Pousada about 300m away from the town centre. The office staff are very helpful and we arranged with them three days of tours with an English speaking guide. I stayed in a 4 person mixed dorm. The room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was really good, but it's best to go before the rush. There are lot... More

Many of the rooms in this hostel have private balconies, some with really great views of the town. The hostel grounds are huge, with lots of room to sit, and a pretty garden area. The breakfast was the best I have ever had at a hostel. Great staff. Great location.

The staff were really friendly and helpful which is what made our stay so good. We organised tours through reception and did some amazing trips with fantastic English speaking guides. We stayed in a private room which was pretty basic but clean. It did get a little bit hot with only a fan but overall we were happy with our... More

A wonderful pousada, with comfortable and very clean amenities. The staff is friendly and they also specialise in tours of the Chapada Diamantina. The breakfast is divine and features on some days the best chocolate cake known to humankind.

From many angles, this seems to be the perfect hostel. A great outside common area with hammocks, a pool table, wifi and a book exchange. Helpful staff that speak good english, know a lot about the surroundings and are very helpful in planning your stay. Our double room and the shared bathroom were clean, so no complaints here. Did not... More

The staff are so friendly and inviting that they create a wonderful friendly environment amongst the guests. Someone meets you at the bus stop and walks you back to the hostel or you can pay about 15 reals for a taxi. The staff have all the information about tours and will help you arrange everything with the tour company of... More

Had a fantastic 3 day hike through the Vale do Pati with our guide Lucio. A kind, generous guide with a lust for hiking and exploring. His English is superb, and was the perfect guide for the three days. Moreover, he is a great cook, having trained previously. He accommodated myself who was vegetarian, my friend who was lactose intolerant,... More

We stayed for a couple of nights here either side of a five day hike booked through H2O, their tour company... that will be a separate review. It's not the cheapest place in town but it has the finishing touches that make it worth the money. It is ideal if you doing a multiday trip as you can leave you... More

It was a very nice stay in this cosy, relaxing hostel. They offer good breakfast, they are very uncomplicated, if you stay in the nationalpark for a few nights. They invest lots of work to make everything more cosy, they paint all the hostel with nice paintings, have a library and a kitchen for the hostel. You will meet lots... More
