“Stop the Press!!! You are Home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

Are u tired of trying out hostel that have 'raving' reviews on the net only to find that they are hell manifest in the form of guest houses?

Are u on a budget and yet the cheapest thing u can find will blow a weeks worth of budget planning?

Are u fed up of staying at hostel where guests throw up on u while u sleep, steal your shampoo (and only that if u r lucky!) and wake u up at all hours of the night as they stumble in from 'Narnia' where they managed to get to by consuming copious amounts of intoxicants?

.....me too.....

And this is why have hit the jackpot when u found Hostel Aplauso..... This is a quality backpackers dream come true.

Philip will help u get around town and let u leave yr bags and use the showers if u need to check out late. Breakfast is usually fresh fruit, toast,some type of juice and lots of yummy Brazilian coffee (never touched the stuff till I got here).

..... And the there is the price .... Just take a look people...

PS. There are female and Male dorms to choose from for us prudent ladies.

Don't bother looking elsewhere....
