Hello my name is Austin from Oklahoma, U.S.A and I must say that Big hostel is an amazing establishment that really has an awesome sense of genuine hospitality along with great accommodations and is located in a convenient/safe area. The building itself is very unique and is surrounded by a beautiful well maintained park. Big hostel is very very well maintained and cleaned thoroughly on a daily basis and I can honestly say that it’s the tidiest hostel I’ve ever been to. 100% rating/recommend
Dorm rooms are cramped, with little space for backpacks. Rooms have a/c but only until around 8am, then it's turned off and the rooms get really hot. There are no lockers in the dorms, only near reception. No breakfast included (strange for Brazil). Upstairs shared shower is hot, but downstairs are cold only. The staff are friendly and helpful. Downstairs common area is quite nice but wifi doesn't reach there. 10 min walk to the opera house and square.
The hostel is very disorganized. I paid the hostel for 4 days and in the third day when I came back from my jungle tour all my baggage was in the living room. They said I didin't pay and I had to show the hostel world confirmation booking again to confirme my payment. I found disrespectful what they did with my stuffs. They mixed dirty shoes and wet clothes with clean clothes and left in the living room without security.
