A basic hostel but you can't expect much for such a low price. Everything was clean but the room was very hot and lot of mosquitoes. Staff speaks only portuguese but was helpful enough to book us in advance a transfer to jericoacoara.

Just stayed there one night on my way back from Jeri. It's very basic, and it doesn't even offer toilet paper, but you can't beat the price. The location is great, close to Beira Mar and Dragao do Mar, and the hostel is walled, barbwired, and has an electronic lock. It doesn't look nice, but it's required as the city is dangerous. Clean toilets and rooms, and the owner, Dona Maria, is very kind and lend us the phone to request a cab on check out. I recommend it. Great value for money.

Wonderful! The true expression of an hostel! Small rooms but colorfull, shared toilet but very cleaned, shared kitchen. For the position it is according to us the best part of the city.

Its a very basic place and good value for your money if you dont expect anything. Staff is helpful but sometimes a bit strange and not that relaxed. I missed some hammocks to spend the time. Toilets are clean, but they dont provide any paper, so bring your own

It is a cosy place to stay. We have had a double room but as the place was not booked out and the dorms are upstairs (the double rooms are downstairs), the dorm might even be a better deal. No breakfast but you can use the kitchen area which is well equiped. The old woman is funny and speaks basic English. She is around all the time, cleaning or talking to guests. There is a younger woman which speaks very good English but we just saw her one time. We felt save. Close to center and beach.

Unfortunately we only stayed a night, but we loved the hostel. It was nice and cosy and there's nothing to complain about. The value for money is fantastic!

Este hostel é ideal para quem não se importa muito com alguns luxos. Não tem chuveiro quente, os lockers são pequenos e ficam na área pública. Mas fora isso, a localização é muito boa, o staff é atencioso e o valor é imbatível, o que torna o hostel um bom custo benefício.

It's a great place to stay while in Fortaleza - the staff are friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable about the city and things going on. The facilities are good, and its really nice to have so many trees and plants inside the hostel - in the common area - and hammocks, of course. Also, you'll find it easy to make some new friends while cooking dinner, or out exploring the city, its beaches, and nightlife. I recommend it.

Absolutely the best value in Fortaleza for accommodations. Perhaps the best value in Brazil. Central location makes it a walk, quick bus, or quick taxi to anywhere. Beach very close. Property is constantly improving; practically a new kitchen area while we were here and new paving being placed in the driveway.

Maybe beacause they were in building work but they were no interesting meeting room and the facilities were scarce (toilets and showers), no toilet papers and no real kitchen.

We stayed for a week at the backpackers Ceara and we had a good time there. Our room was nice and clean , and the owner (Maria) very helpful and nice! And the location of the hostel is very convenient as it is very close to a lot of things : museum, restaurant, market, beach, shopping ,bus ... If we come back to Fortaleza we will for sure come back to the backpackers Ceara !

The cheapest hostel I've stayed in in Brazil - but you get what you pay for. It's very, very basic. In fact, it looks like its still being built or renovated. But the location is good and for 1 night in transit to Jeri it was fine

The staff was very helpful, even arranged for a taxi for my 430am pickup to the airport. I arrived in the dark and left in the dark, but the place was basic but worked for me!
