Fantastic Staff, I did not stay here as they did not have room during my dates, but I booked all my tours with them, including Fumaca Waterfall, 4day Paty Valley Hike and Poco (Cave) Tour. They were remarkably friendly and assisted with everything, as well as being the cheapest tour operators we found in Lencois. 4day Paty Valley Hike with... More

We stayed for three nights in one of the eight-bunk rooms. Standard amenities, with backpack-size lockers available for each guest (bring your own lock, or buy one from them). Wi-fi only really works in common areas. I found the staff both helpful and professional. Breakfast was also ample, with a nice selection of fresh fruit and juices. A great experience... More

Dear Kelly, thank you for your reviews. Our biggest room has only 3 bunk-beds, we have no 8 bunk beds room in this hostel. Yes, in fact our individual lockers are pretty big and have key. Otherwise, you can rent a padlock and be REIMBURSED of this as you return the padlock. Lencois is such small town and so far... More

Great breakfast with lots of variety, okay beds and a nice outdoor area but this is all negated by the rude rule signs that are everywhere that make this otherwise nice place feel like prison. It's a shame because this place could be great but they don't make you feel like a person or guest who is welcome; they make... More

Dear Mary G, daily rate starts at 13 h and ends at 11 h. Breakfast in included in daily rate. We feel sorry you expect free services such as breakfast OUT OF your booked day and free showers. We regret that, differently from everybody else, you did not feel welcome. In fact this is not a place for unruly travelers.... More

The hostel staff really went out of their way to make my trip go well, before and after my stay. Day trips into the park were easy to book the night before, right from the hostel's front desk. Fantastic hostel.

Substantially better-than-average, atmospheric hostel in central Lençois. Four person dorms, small but adequate, small lockers do not fit large rucksacks. Comfortable private double with bathroom, serviced daily very rare for this type of accommodation. Good quality hot showers. Noise from the street an issue at night for the front rooms. Reasonable internet, moderate speeds. Very extensive breakfast for a hostel,... More
