Good facilities, great breakfast and really close to the beach. Only downfall is that the staff don't speak very good English and they dont know so much about tours and things to do in the city.
That's an awesome hostel. Its staff and atmosphere are welcoming and cheerful. Security is great as you need a key to get into the room and there are lockers inside. Location couldn't be better given that the hostel is 10 min away from the beach if you walk and there are banks, markets, bakeries and drugstores nearby. Its breakfast has a good variety of food and drink. All things considered, it may be the most expensive hostel I ever stayed in, but it ends up being worthy.

Excellent hostel, the breakfast is really good and the common area is really cozy and easy to chat with the other guests. The neighborhood is too quiet at night tho so to go out you have to take a bus or cab to downtown.
Great hostel in a great location, beach only 2 minutes away and dorm beds even have curtains. Staff are super friendly and super helpful. Breakfast is also very good. Lots of different chill out areas. Highly recommend you stay here.
Great location and very, very clean. The beds are uncomfortable and having only one bathroom for 12 people is crazy. People responsible for breakfast didnt have things ready by 8:30am when breakfast was supposed to be ready by 7am.
hostel was nice with a chilled vibe, some of the staff's English was a little hard to understand, you can bring your own beer to the hostel which was awesome and there was a little supermarket about 20 meters away!
Nice place to stay in Recife. Great breakfast. The crew running the place put a lot of effort in it, from the design to keeping it clean. Recomended.
Its a nice place, free fruits and too close a "red light district" for gringos seeking cheap fun ahahaha
The place was good, although my bed was in a "room within a room" - there was only 2 beds and no air conditioning - and no power outlets - the only power outlets in the room had to be used for fans to keep the room at a suitable temperature for sleep. Everything else about this hostel was awesome :)
The hostel had all the necessary amenities, but the rooms in the 2nd floor has only one toilet for 10 people, which was a problem when you need to leave in a hurry. The location of the hostel was excellent, not just close to the beach, but also groceries and banks were all nearby. It would be preferable having a few more english speaking guys at reception.
Near the beach 1block away :-) . Easy to found from bus station. Huge and delicious breakfast
Do yourself a favor and stay this hostel! I loved my stay here. They staff were extremely nice and friendly, they even took a group of us to Old Town Recife for an unforgettable night. The free breakfast was absolutely delicious and big! GREAT LOCATION-only a few minute walk from Boa Viagem beach. They even have really cool chill out rooms that you can read or watch movies in. Seriously, if you are going to Recife, stay here! I definitely am looking forward to staying at this hostel again.
A really amazing hostel with great atmosphere and really nice and helpful. One of the best I've ever stayed in. Amazing location 3 minutes from the beach! Highly recommended

The building was hard to find. It's around the corner of the address they tell you and at the entrance there is no sign. I had to check out early and they told me to call a cab. That cab never came and I made it to the airport in the very last minute by taking one of the rare cabs that are available at 4:30am in the street. The facilities of the hostel were nice. But Recife doesn't offer a lot and the beaches are a lot nicer more north and south, so I decided to leave after 1night.
You can see the owner puts a lot of work into this hostel and it shows. Overall a excellent hostel in the Recife area. Breakfast was great - lots of variety and plentiful.
Staff couldn't speak english so that caused problems but other than that the hostel itself is great. Best one in Recife!
Great hostel, I would recommend it. There is cold filtered water, a TV room with lots of DVDs for quiet nights, and the breakfast spread is great. Close to the beach and the streets next to the hostel have buses to just about everywhere in Recife.
Really clean hostel, maybe too many rules, but it works quite well. Super good wifi and very nice environment.
