Nice hostel, in a fairly good location, close to the beach. Lots of communal area space and the breakfast was good.


Priates Da Praia is surprisingly good for a hostel in Brazil - great atmosphere. It is considerably cheaper (66BRL compared to +100BRL) than many of the other top rated hostels around Brazil in Natal and Fortaleza. I thought the execution was very well done, there is a great atmosphere there. The crowd is a mix of South Americans and westerns which added to the atmosphere and vibe of the hostel. Definately give the lunch (14BRL) that they offer a try, surprisingly the best meal I had in Brazil.


A very nice hostel with helpful staff. Just 2 minutes from the beautiful beach. Good breakfast!

Great atmosphere.. very friendly.. best breakfast Ever !!


Arrived in Recife our first time in South America and were welcomed by these guys with open arms. Gabrielle was a top guy who helped us with the millions of questions we had and plenty of support with doing it! Oskar gave us some vital advice about places to travel and stay saving us a fortune! Some great advice about Argentina too! Big thanks to these guys! Hopefully our paths will cross one day again :)


Very interesting to have a hostel on the 3rd floor of a building, but it worked out very well. Friendly staff with good facilities made it enjoyable for the weekend. Would stay there again!


Was a great stay! A Bit far away from Olinda if you want to vist there!


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.
