Where to start. The whole experience in the hostel was excellent from start to finish. From being met at the bus stop and walked through the town, to then find that my room had been upgraded at no extra cost. What a fantastic start. The staff were all lovely and super helpful. The vibe was very relaxed and chilled and... More

Pousada dos Duendes is a very comfortable guest house located high in the village, offering in some rooms a very nice view above the roofs. The pousada would in general benefit from some refurbishing, but the rooms are nevertheless comfortable, very nicely decorated, the breakfast is delicious and the hammocks permanently invite you to a relaxing moment. The atmosphere is... More

A nice hostel with good decore and very clean. Great breakfast and staff very helpfull. A great place to organise all trips to Chapada Diamantina and staff are well organised. If not being taken directly to the hostel it is a bit difficulty to locate, but once there you realise it is only a couple of roads away from the... More

Beside the fact that the Pousada is lovely decorated, that the friendly staff makes you feel home, that there are boardgames, books, friendly dogs, lovely private rooms, hammocks to chill in, the Pousada Dos Duendes is the perfect spot to plan a hike/trek. The staff is well trained, they have a complete knowledge on how to organize a hike/trek.

I would definitely recommend this place to stay and also to book a trip to Chapada Diamontina with. Me and my girlfriend are backpacking and this was one of the few places that provided good service for the money. The staff were awesome, so friendly and helpful. Nearly everyone spoke English which was a bonus. Prices are very reasonable, clean... More

We were group of 4 (50+). Our private room was just perfect size. It is not 5 star hotel, but the surrounding is so relaxing that you fill like in the resort. Most of guests are young people.

The hostel was everything you would expect from a hostel- decent bunks, beautiful grounds, good breakfast, quiet (except for the roosters crowing in the morning), and a good place to meet others and arrange a trek into the Chapada. The pousada is in the back of town and isolated making it vary peaceful, which is perfect for Lençois. It also... More

This hostel is good if what you want to do is meet up with lots of other travellers and you're more interested in spending time with them than doing some budget exploration. I'd recommend this hostel to a young inexperienced traveller looking to make friends. As a hostel it's overpriced, there are much nicer places in town for half the... More
