I was in a mixed dorm, so it was not possible to have a female room... There was a young boy and he tried to sleep with me, while i was laying in bed, so this is the reason of my bad review for security. He didn't rape me or anything further, but i was happy, that others have been in this room. The seine about cleanness is, that every time, when your staff was cleaning, i couldn't find my things. Once i left my bikini under my Pillow and after the cleaning it was lost and the second night

The staff was amazing and the hostel itself was also very clean and organized. They rent out free surfboards, wetsuits, etc and provide a list of fun things to do every day and night.

Muy tranquilo. We loved our week here at Barra Beach and wished we could've stayed longer. Definitely the best place we've stayed, set above the beach on the hill. Everything in Barra is walking distance, Lagoa is close by bus to go out to and the hostel organises big nights out most nights. Brekky is delicious and you can buy lunch and dinner there most days. Staff are great value. Definitely recommend

Awesome hostel!! The location and views are unbeatable, for a hostel 2min walk from the beach it's super clean and not even sandy, great kitchen but an even better chef who cooks delicious, healthy meals for lunch and dinner, heaps of boards all for free use and a great breakky! The staff are super friendly and helpful- Ale and Maru especially who were always keen to take us on hikes and hang out with the guests. It's a very chilled place so be careful, you'll stay longer than planned!!

Easy to see why it was voted one of South America's best hostels. Good location for beach and surfing (not so much for partying), awesome breakfast, cheap and really good dinner, lots of other backpackers and free surfboard and wetsuit rentals. Tip: it's definitely worth to spend a couple reals more per night and stay in the 4 person dorm, it's cleaner (the 10 person dorm was a bit smelly) and has better showers! Highly recommended

Absolutely top notch! One of the best we've stayed at in our three months. Took advantage of free surfboard and wetsuit rental every day, food at restaurant but also brilliant kitchen, beach location, nearby hiking and amazing bbq night. Can't rate it highly enough! Make sure to ask 'Ali' for his farufa (sp?) recipe!

We absolutely loved our stay in this hostel! The location was unbeatable, the staff super helpful and the food really good (and cheap!) Barra itself is a lovely place to spend a weekend and if you do go, I would highly suggest staying here!
