There are no walls and you will hear everything all night so good luck sleeping. This is not well advertised and I'm glad I was only staying for 1...

Zicatela is located at a 5 minute walk from the main street in Pipa, which is perfect if you want to enjoy the nightlife but still have a good night's sleep. It is equally close to praia do amor. I spent the night in a private double room, which was nothing fancy but all you need: a clean bed, clean...

Really fun place to be! Really close to the Amor's beach, a walk distance from shops, grocery stores, restaurants and bars, very reasonable price, excellent breakfast, kind staff and it is a really easy place to make new friends. The room has no privacy but it really didn't bother me, since I was in a hostel sharing a room with...

The place is pretty average and a little bit run down. The room we had booked was for 3 people but this was the only one available at that time for a couple. The room was very spacious.
