This hostel feels different from a lot of other hostels we stayed at in Brazil that are mostly packed with international backpackers. San Sebastian, however, was full with Brazilians. Families with kids and young Brazilians created a really nice atmosphere. Even though there is language barrier people tried to have conversations with us the whole time.
The kitchen was very well equipped and was kept very clean. Breakfast was really, really good. Every day there were two home made cakes that were delicious. You also got fruit, cheese, ham, jelly, granola and bread. It was definitely better than the average breakfast (that is already good) in Brazilian hostels.
The hostel also operates a public bar. This bar attracts a lot of other people that are in town. It is very cozy and I really enjoyed the music.
The rooms are absolutely ok but could need some paint. Beds seemed clean and were comfortable. The bathroom was good.
We payed 58 R$ for a private room.This was really, really good value. Actually it was surprising to find such an inexpensive hostel in Maresias as the town is extremely expensive otherwise.More
