The location is very good, near both the metro and the bus station, a shopping mall and few other great things. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very kind to me and my husband. The price is very good for what they offer. The breakfast is simple and delicious. If we comeback to Porto Alegre any soon, we will certainly stay there again.
we stayed 3 nights in this hostel. Nice room with good bathroom. Breakfast not bad. Freindly staff. Good kitchen to make your own dinner in. Wifi fast and all together it was a nice stay. The hostel is not far from centro and supermarkets. The price was cheap compared to the value of the stay. I can recommend the hostel.
We paid $R130 for a private double with bathroom. It was really clean and comfortable. Air con, tv, comfy bed etc. The hostel itself has great facilities and nice staff. I thought it was value for money. We walked to and from the bus station with no worries, its location is handy for bus travelers.
This hostel is very comfortable, clean and have a good location. I made great friends there, there a nice common area. The rooms are very clean and cozy. My only complain is about the staff. When I stayed there, the hostel was almost empty, and they woke me up very early in the last day for make the checkout and take off my things, few hours before the checkout time.
It's not the better neighborhood to stay, but it worth it because of the price, if you're going by yourself. About 40 reais and you get a good bed, with a locker, breakfast... They have the certification of the Hostelling International. This price is for members only. Take a look in their site, but I think that is free to become a member when checking in.
Its super clean family hostel, price is little bit expensive for students but from sheets to bathrooms everything is super clean, breakfast is very rich. Staff is friendly and kind, but having little bit difficulty with the language, but its not a big deal actually its better for visitors to grab some portugues words
What a clean and friendly place! I spent 5 days in the hostel Boutique and if I ever go back to Porto Alegre, I will definitely be staying there. The place is close to the center, to el Mercado Publico, I walked all the time and did need any bus or cab...only for late nights :) The staff, the owner are helpful and will give you some hints and tips about the area. Free Wifi and excellent network. Nice breakfast and vegetarian plate upon request. Highly recommended.
The Porto Alegre Hostel Boutique in a very basic place, run unprofessionally and with a hideous breakfast, all at an incredibly overpriced rate. To add to the atmosphere, the street it is on is the main prostitution hub in Buenos Aires. It is dodgy to walk at night, and it will be so noisy at night that you will hardly be able to sleep (we stayed during a weekday!). Try elsewhere, we are going back to Porto Alegre and won't stay there again.
It's facility is nice. Good bed, cleaned bath room with enough shower, good kitchen. Price is a little high. This hostel discourage walk-in and phone reservation. Walki-in price or phone reservation price is substantially high ( hostelworld 35 real vs work-in 50 real ). I did not bother to reserve it online because I just stayed one night and did not like to take the risk of cloning of my credit card which is often happened in Brazil. The safe deposit box for valuable is a joke which seem to me not safe at all.Most travelers are from Brazil and nearby countries with limit English. The Hostel seems to locate redlight district or similar area. Prostitutes stand right on the street in front of hostel. I feel the area is pretty safe but might not suitable for people with conservative value from English speaking country. It is good place to stay one night for changing bus in Porto Alegre.…
I discovered this small hostel during a visit to Porto Alegre to do research for a book I'm writing, so I was looking for somewhere comfortable and friendly but inexpensive. This met all three criteria, and was close to the vibrant and sophisticated nightlife and dining district of Moinhos de Vento with some great pavement cafes. The hostel is in an old house very recently refurbished and rooms are simple, clean and bright with modern bathrooms. I had a four bedded room to myself for a very reasonable rate. The atmosphere was relaxed and informal and staff were ready to help with any enquiries. The downtown area of Porto Alegre, including the colourful Mercado Publico, was easily accessible on foot. The only disappointment was the breakfast (included in the room rate), which was extremely unimaginative, given the wonderful tropical fruits and coffee for which Brazil is famed. But there were cafes offering fresh pastries, juice and coffee near enough to forego the hostel breakfast. And that wouldn't put me off recommending the hostel to anyone looking for budget accommodation with character and a warm welcome in Porto Alegre.…
