“nice place”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

We stayed at this place for 12 days as we just enjoyed the island.
The hostel is nice with it's garden and opportunities to chill out. There are 2 kitchens available so we never had problems to cook.
Actually there is a pool but totally not useable...
To the beach it takes 10 to 15 minutes walk and the beach is really nice there.

Room Tip: We had a dorm with private bathroom

We were here during Carnaval and stayed in the 3 bed room with no A/C. Obviously it was hot (expected), but it was also annoying to leave the window open because they were renting out space in the front yard for people to set up tents and it was loud. Hostel staff was very rarely around and I kept having people ask me if I knew who worked there...even when I did, I had no idea where to find them. The bathrooms also seemed to be cleaned maybe only once or twice during our five day stay which was pretty gross for the number of people using them. Overall I have stayed at worse places but I probably wouldn't choose to stay here again, or at least not in the height of tourist season (February). Some people seem to love it though, so maybe we were just there at the wrong time.

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs were privates (I think) and seemed to be VERY nice in comparison to the dorm room...

We turned up in the middle of winter just wanting a couple of days on the island. We asked to stay for two nights. The guest house itself is separate to family house but on he first day the family was always present. However, on the second day the weather turned into torrential rain and so we wanted to leave that day and head north to Sao Paulo instead. We saw nobody at all, all day, so had to leave a note with some money for the night on the desk. Very strange. The house seemed clean but a little unused (as it was winter) friendly staff but they spoke no English. I'm sure on the summer it's a much better place to stay.
