Some members of the staff weren't always extremely helpful and they made it look like they were making you a favor if you asked them for anything. But others were amazing and very attentive. The breakfast was great! My only real problem was the cold shower, that was the only option of shower available.
I stayed in the hostel twice. Interestingly, my first time was much different from te second time I stayed there. In the beginning the communication with the personnel went quite badly. It was quite dependent on the person at the reception desk, how the atmosphere was. Next to this, I would have been happy to have been notified beforehand about the lack of water before 6 o'clock in the morning.
The staff was great! Great location to the beach and restaurants nearby. The bathrooms were little messy and toilet paper was often missing. But in the end, I ended up staying 2 additional nights but added them at the reception desk. The breakfast was very good and they have a restaurant of their own.
Good hostel, very good staff. A hostel made for a backparker, spacious loker with power outlet inside, reading light and power outlet in every bed, nice and quiet AC. The down points was only two showers for the entire hostel and my mattress was a bit old. All in all great hostel, can't wait to go back!

Great hostel, everything a hostel should be, even electricity inside the lockers! Huge breakfast with lots of juices and fruits. But the kitchen has got only two kettles to cook. Mostly dirty so you have to clean them before cooking. Close to the beach and walking distance from the center and supermarke. Great value for money.
I got the hostel recommended in my lonely planet. Good breakfast and it is convenient that a little bar is in the front of the hostel. I stayed two nights; the stuff is friendly but not really helpful regarding typical backpacker questions I had. I speak very little Portugese and the staff spoke almost no English or Spanish, language barrier exists.
I really liked the Hostel. We got a private room, so we had hot shower, ar conditioning and a tv with the local channels. The day staff was very very helpful, and very kind. My room was clean and good. Only thing is my room was kind of old, not very well conserved, specially the furniture, but you could also see it in the walls. But it was very good for what i expect of a hostel, no luxury, but comfortable.
Great location, clean and good rooms, great breakfast bus the staff just spoke portugues and was pretty rude. If that eould chance it would me one of the best hostels i've been in brazil!
stuff was pretty bad with exception of Larissa. she was the only helpful person on the hostel. the rest did not even speak any english. i was not told basic things like there was a breakfast or how to get anywhere or book anything. cleaness was also not so terrific. wifi on the highest floor was constantly out
Good location, great staff, nice breakfast, clean rooms with locker. However, the room was too cold to sleep as the AC temp is fixed to freezing and that's that can't be helped. Cold showers only and so for the latter 2 reasons I would not recommend it.
The hostel is perfectly located, next to the beach, with excellent commodities. However the staff, although very polite, wasn't able to give us any information, not even to locate his hostel on a map of Fortaleza.
It is a nice place, but my room and bathroom were definetly not clean! I stayed in the private room and I was very unhappy with the cleanliness.
Nice place, good location. Great value for your money. Could have more bathroons and be more clean. But it is overall ok
Very helpful staff, decent well equipped kitchen, huge lockers (a kind of cupbard) which allow to lock not only valuables but the entire backpack, even hair dryers in the bathrooms. During the time of my stay renovations were going on which seemed quite promising. Unfortunately the area is a bit dodgy during the night and not recommendable for going out alone. However, non of the big cities along the Brazilian costs are.
The staff n location are nice n friendly. I recommend u to fix the direction from rodoviaria. If we take no 73 bus, it's direct. On web page doesn't mention it. In addition, the door at our room doesn't close completely, mosquito came in and suffered our sleeping all nights. On breakfast, i wish there is fresh milk, not milk which is melted water with powder milk.
Great location and friendly and helpful staff (some don't speak English). Renovations currently going on. But a nice hostel.
Nice hostel, close to the beach. Dorms are good with bunk beds, just one shower per floor. Breakfast was very nice with fruits, sandwiches etc. . Staff is really friendly and helpful but just one guy speaks English. Bus stop to go to Praia do Futuro just round the corner. Supermarket and restaurants close by. Taxi to the airport between 35-45 BRL depending on the traffic. They have a small bar and a nice bar area. Can recommend it!
