This hostel is lacking in many areas...especially considering the expensive price tag and hidden extras! The noise is bad...especially at weekends. Upon arrival I was told of 30 reals extra per person I had to pay for not being a hostel international member..on top of what my booking confirmed I had to pay. When I booked the room (on the...

I stayed at Albergue for over three weeks because it was the most affordable hotel and hostel by a long way in Praia do forte which is generally an expensive place to stay. The staff were lovely and Elena in particular always had helpful suggestions and good English, something one also can't take for granted everywhere in Brazil. The private... More

I stayed at the hostel from Thursday through Sunday and the noise from the surrounding bars would go until 3am. There is a social club right next to it and souza bar-a very noisy ar with terrible live music until 3am - is less than 100m from the hostel. Just impossible to sleep. I do not recommend to anybody who... More

30 $ for a place in a dorm and $120 for a room isn´t cheap for a hostel. But is was weekend, and most hotels were booked full. Wifi isn´t cheap either on short stays (you pay one price for your whole stay), but once paid your connection works perfect. And there a few computers available for limited free access... More

Honestly, the prices are way more high than other very nice places in Praia do Forte, they make you pay for the wifi which I think is now a standard service in all the hostel-pousadas that I've visited in South America, average breakfast and some members of the staff are just not very helpfull. So better take a look around... More

The hostel is well located, just 1 block from the main street where all the restaurants are. And ~200m from the beach. I stayed with my boyfriend in a private room. It was big, really clean and nice. The bathroom was new, the shower was great. You can choose rooms with or without air conditioner. The breakfast was ok, with... More

This is the beautiful hostel I've ever been. Super clean, comfotable rooms and structure in general, great breakfast, very helpful stuff! I can't complain for one think and I can just thank who suggested it to me! Best experience ever even comparising it with 3 stars hotels.

I really really love this place. I stayed here for 2 or 3 weeks. The hostel is beautiful, great location (one block off the main, carless stretch). All the rooms open onto a courtyard. Breakfast is decent. Praia do Forte is great. I know that most of the staff who were there when I was there are gone (Im still... More
