This is a great hostel to stay in Recife. It's close to beach but slightly out of town centre which is fine. The rooms were always clean and the staff were very friendly. Most of the staff could not speak great English but they did their best to give me information & make sure my stay was enjoyable. The breakfast is awesome and it's easy to meet other travelers. There's a lot of things to do in Recife and surrounding locations & I would recommend staying at Albergue Piratas da Praia Hostel.

This is a very good hostel with good staff and a great vibe. It is a bus ride to most of the sights of Recife, except the beach which is only one block away from the hostel. It is never-the-less very easy to catch the busses. Staff very helpful and they even organized a hostel block party through the streets of Olinda for Carnival.... Well done guys... Good breakfasts.


This hostel is exactly how you would want your home to be. They thought about the details that do make a difference in your stay ! The breakfeast is awesome and it s very clean since they seem to be 10 working there at the same time cleaning the place ! The decoration/accessories are awesome and the division of the different rroms really wel thought. The location is perfect if you want to go to the centro historico and to the beach.


dirty place. only one guy spoke english in a good way. there is a family living in this hostel, so you couldn't use the kitchen when you want (because they were cooking 3x a day). bad atmosphere - just the air condition was really good!


One guy from the reception wasn't that friendly and that is the reason that we knew at our last evening what we could do in Recife. Just sad.


Very nice staff. The owner is a lovely person, with lots of ideas to make this hostel even more individual and fancy as it already is! Breakfast was fine, but without bread whatsoever. Great idea: free fruits, coffee and tea all day! :)
