I don't know how this place got any good reviews.
To start things off the owner is extremely greedy, rude, and cheap. Arrived at 8am expecting that we could hang out in the lobby till check in. Instead the owner forced us out of the hostel to wander the streets with our bags till check in at 12am.
If you plan on sleeping, this isn't the place. Road noise is incredibly loud throughout the night. Waking up to and comparing bug bites in the morning wasn't the greatest thing either
If you like to wash your hands there is ZERO water pressure and no soap and no paper towels to dry your hands. Also the toilets are plugged constantly.
There's also zero water pressure for taking a shower and if someone uses the sink or flushes the toilet, the water stops for 2 to 3 minutes.
The area is alright, you definitely don't want to be waking alone at night time.
The breakfast is absolutely horrible they hand out 3 pieces of ham and 2 pieces of cheese while 10 people are waiting for food.
We were planning on staying a couple more nights when we return for Recife. We are going to stay somewhere else.
