3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Central Hostel's just a few blocks from the beach, and steps away from convenient stores and restaurants (peaceful part of a residential street, I must say). Its rooms are basic, though spacious. Attended by a housekeeper every morning but doesn't leave the room spick-and-span. We stayed for about 5 days and our floor was never swept. Our room had a balcony where we were able to hang our swimmers and towels. Weak wifi connection upstairs. Brekkie is served until 10AM and has pretty good choices.

Receptionist barely spoke English, and seemed more friendly to other guests who could speak Portuguese.

Not good for families with small kids for they host occasional parties that lasts 'til wee hours. Definitely perfect for backpackers who are up for mingling. Price was jacked up during our stay for it was Carnaval Season. Getting a cab from the bus station (there's a taxi line) to there shouldn't be a problem.

This hostel has a great location half way between the bus station and the beach. Although it looks old on first arrival it has a large common area, nice kitchen, and good rooms. The staff was very nice and helpful. I would defiantly recommend it to stay.
