“Great hostel, great atmosphere, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

I had such an incredible time whilst staying here, one week was definitely not enough.

We were looking to surf and relax, the combination of Andrea on local surfing knowledge and Valentina who seemed to know all the yoga schedules in Mais Pais was ideal. Along with invites to sunset parties and gaining access to fresh fish from the local fisherman passing through, our stay was really enhanced by our choice to stay here.

Location is perfect, a stone's throw away from the supermarket, surf/ATV rentals and surf spots.

Important to mention that the hostel is cleaned daily and with good facilities on the shower/toilet front. Also felt my belongings were very safe.

Highly recommended!

Never before have I relaxed so much. The owners are both friendly and helpful, making you feel welcomed. Great kitchen, bedrooms and facilities. The place is peppered with hammocks. The beach is on the door step and adjacent to the shops. Did not want to leave. Highly recommend and will be making plans to go back. Thanks you very much.

We stayd in Tropical Pasta for one week with four finnish girls. We really really enjoyed our stay and liked to hostel a lot. It had a wonderful relaxed surf&chill atmosphere. The hammocks and the outdoor kitchen as well as the common areas were really nice. The owners Andrea and Valentina were really kind and helpful, helping us with everything we need. The beach and good swimming and surf areas were really close to the hostel. We could have stayed forever in this lovely and cosy hostel! We can recommend this to everyone!

We are coming there almost every year. It´s a perfect place to stay: a great surfspot just in front of the house (1min-walk), the owner-family is more than friendly and their hospitality make the place very special! The open kitchen is perfect to chill and make friends. I think they didn´t change their very good rates for years.

My family and I stayed in this lovely place for a few days, we had booked in another place nearby but we didn't like it because it was dirty and messy. We started looking for another place and luckily found Tropical Pasta. Valentina and Andrea ( the owners ) gave us excellent service, provided us two clean and comfy bedrooms, both with a very reasonable price.

The location was excelent, in front of the beach, and minutes away from Santa Teresa.

If I go back there, I would definitely stay in Tropical Pasta! <3

I stayed there for a whole month around Xmas. The owners Andrea and Valentina are a wonderful couple, welcoming, and helpful and their baby Thiago is the happiest I've ever met.
They often make barbecues in the garden and cook italian food for the guests.
It is also very conveniently located: the beach is basically across the street and there a big supermarket a couple of blocks away. The rates are very good for the area and it's a good place to meet people. There's no way you're not going to make friends there!

Room Tip: The best room is the one in the back, facing the garden!
