A great place to stay. The location is perfect, super close to the beach and the Lagoa da Conceição, there is a cozy pub, many facilities, helpful staff and a lot of nature around.

Really fun hostel, great vibe and a lot to do in the surrounding hostel. staff were touch and go but in the main very friendly and helpful. Bus trips to the South and North of the island were great fun and there's so much to see on the island. quite far from the night clubs though. The private rooms weren't however that good - suffered from dampness and the wall between the two rooms was paper thin so you were afforded no privacy at all. other than that a great hostel.

Make sure you book online because they will charge you more than what the price is listed on hostel world. The staff made me feel very unwelcomed. The day I checked out they told me I wasn't allowed to use the common facilities without supervision. They told me I had to get security or a staff member to walk around. My bus didn't leave until the evening and I was planning on hanging out, but because they made me feel so unwelcomed about using the kitchen, bathroom, common spaces I just left.

This hostel is in an awesome location and has great facilities. That said 1 toilet / shower between a 4 and 10 bed dorm meant the toilet was almost always very dirty. The 4 person dorm was also damp. Due to it's location expect to pay a lot for food and drinks and note that you can't bring in your own drinks so have to buy only at the bar. Staff were really friendly and helpful, overall a good place to stay although a bit overpriced for what it is.

Backpackers Sunset is the real deal. We were here during winter so it was cold at night (during day it was perfect). The hostel itself is great with great common areas to hang out and meet people. Staff is amazing and so friendly. You can rent surfboard (15 reals/day). Great activities and trips during both day and night (we went to a Brazilian rave, Laidback Luke, what!). Place is massive with tons of areas to chill. One of the best hostels we stayed at during my2 month trip. Highly recommend.

Great atmosphere at backpackers sunset! Staff were lots of fun and always making the night life a good vibe. Beds were comfy, unfortunately we got really bad weather so couldn't go down to the beach which is at the doorstep of this hostel. Bus stop is also right out the front making it easy to go to town for less than 3reals. Great hostel!

Very enjoyable stay, I would definitely recommend the hostel. Lots of activities to get involved in and a vibrant and social bar in the evenings.

I had a great stay here. The staff are incredibly friendly, welcoming and helpful, the location is good - very close to one beautiful beach, within walking distance of others, and near to shops, etc... the food and restaurant are great, as is the free sunset caipirinha... Atmosphere here is just perfect, and facilities good, too. The view is amazing! Only downside is all the stairs - but it keeps you fit, at least!
