This is not a hostel. It is a pension. Most of the people are not travellers, but actually live there. There is one bathroom for everybody, and it is VERY dirty. No breakfast included. When we arrived, nobody was aware of our reservation. The entrance is dark. There are no lockers and sometimes the entrance doors were opened. Does not seems safe. Except for the location, we do not recommend this place.

Staff not helpful, no English, no wifi. Lockers could easily be broken into. No free breakfast and not much to cook with in the kitchen.

This is a lovely little hostel in the centre of Lagoa da Conceicao, right next to all the shops and restaurants. It is a very quiet hostel, good facilities and nice rooms. We didn't meet that many people whilst here, but the hostel owner was very welcoming and friendly and took the time to talk to us. The rest of the staff didn't speak English although we had no problems with this. We did eventually move to a different hostel as we were looking to party and it is not a party place.
