One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in Brazil. Very good breakfast , laundry service and some parking space. walking distance from the beach. Welcoming and helpful staff. The price for air conditioner is different , but it's a small difference and worths. 😁

Good Hoste, but expensive. Another anoying thing is the noise. The place is noisy because of its location and because people keep ringing the bell all night long! Irritating. I did not sleep at all. Breakfast is good.

This hostel is lacking in many areas...especially considering the expensive price tag and hidden extras! The noise is bad...especially at weekends. Upon arrival I was told of 30 reals extra per person I had to pay for not being a hostel international member..on top of what my booking confirmed I had to pay. When I booked the room (on the...

I stayed at Albergue for over three weeks because it was the most affordable hotel and hostel by a long way in Praia do forte which is generally an expensive place to stay. The staff were lovely and Elena in particular always had helpful suggestions and good English, something one also can't take for granted everywhere in Brazil. The private... More

You may find the hostel to be well located: close to restaurants, the beach, bars, but wait until its night time and you will realize what a bad choice you have made. I was there from Thursday thru Sunday during low season and it was impossible to sleep before midnight on Thurs, 1am on Friday and 4 AM on Sunday.... More

I stayed at the hostel from Thursday through Sunday and the noise from the surrounding bars would go until 3am. There is a social club right next to it and souza bar-a very noisy ar with terrible live music until 3am - is less than 100m from the hostel. Just impossible to sleep. I do not recommend to anybody who... More

Very nice place with beautiful patio that make you feel like home in an instant. Very friendly, professional and helpful staff. Tasty breakfast, good kitchen facilities, free internet and wifi. And all of this very near to the center and the beach of this pleasant village. So we stayed longer then planned :-)

We stopped here for two nights in a double room and found it to be large and comfortable. Facilities were of a good standard and always clean & tidy. Internet is free if you use the computers at reception however if stopping more than one day maybe worth while buying an Wifi pass as this covers your stay. Found the... More

30 $ for a place in a dorm and $120 for a room isn´t cheap for a hostel. But is was weekend, and most hotels were booked full. Wifi isn´t cheap either on short stays (you pay one price for your whole stay), but once paid your connection works perfect. And there a few computers available for limited free access... More

Honestly, the prices are way more high than other very nice places in Praia do Forte, they make you pay for the wifi which I think is now a standard service in all the hostel-pousadas that I've visited in South America, average breakfast and some members of the staff are just not very helpfull. So better take a look around... More
