Great location, good breakfast, the place is an attraction itself, everything is clean and has a cozy environment, the pub is really nice as well, the service varies between great and mediocre. However, I've heard they're closing it soon as a hostel which is kinda sad for such a great place.

I really was just overall happy with how at home I felt in such a "public" place, perfect location from the main street haha i cant even remember. there is entertainment district behind the hostel. I would not recommend for family during busy weeks though. breakfast and big tv was top notch. :D

NIce to stay in a castle. Decoration, tables and everithing are adequate to a castle. The lockers are belloe the bed and it was hard to close it with the provided chains. Nice breakfast in a big and heavy old table. Hostel has an adjacent tavern for night shows. Restaurants and nightlife area.

I haven't seen that many hotels with a basket with condoms on the desk. Some will call this vulgar, to me it's rather an act of responsability in a country where still too many people close their eyes for reality. If you've ever seen the number (and size) of Brazillian motels, you know what I mean, but I still have... More

We were there and was raining so not the best weather for Natal. But in our room was really cold and you'd have TO PAY FOR THE BLANKET, plus was raining from the roof on our materass and the option given from the girl at the reception was 'soon it's going to stop raining'. They even were not able to... More

I'm sorry for your discomfort, but there are always two sides of the story! We have a great structure, service and ethics. But even then we can't please 100% of our guests. But certainly a large majority. Greetings More

This place was secluded giving a hill-valley-view. There is no disturbance. It is good for relaxation. The host family is very courteous and hospitable. There is no direct road to the resort, but the resort has a jeep to ferry you the last 4km, and it is available most of the times.There are limited number of cottages which is a... More

This place is a hostelling international hostel, however, there is no hostel feeling there at all. The building itself is amazing, looking like a castle and its clean. However the staff were not very friendly, there was no common area in which is meet other people, you had to pay to enter the bar which was loud and meant if... More

Thank you for saying that the architecture is beautiful, that cleanliness is great and they are sure to be a good place to go with a group of friends! Don't understand, and you also did not explain why it is impossible to sleep, because we don't have this complaint here. The bar (Tavern Pub) is another company and not owned... More
