The owner and staff here are fantastic and so helpful! Although it was very quiet due to the season, the atmosphere was still chilled and friendly. The outdoor area and pool are perfect for socialising or just lazing around. The pool gets serviced weekly which is a plus compared to most hostels with pools! The wifi is also fast and breakfast is great (eggs, fruit, toast, coffee). A really great hostel.

Great hostel, staff we're all very helpful. We got upgraded to the deluxe suite for the same price which was nicer than most hotels I have visited in Brazil. The main beach is within walking distance. Very relaxing hostel.


The good: swimming pool, good wifi, great staff and awesome communal areas, both inside and outside. The bad: dorm rooms are quite cramped, and there is only one shower between all dorms. Luckily we were there at a quiet time so it wasn't too much of a problem, but I imagine it would be quite annoying during peak season. Overall, Brazuka is a great, clean and welcoming hostel run by a super friendly, helpful and travel-smart guy. I would definitely go back. Thanks for having us Hezio! Legend! :)

Best Hostel in Northeast of Brazil! Friendly staff, amazing swimming pool + ping pong table. Hostel itself very clean and the Internet was very fast.

Very nice hostel, the staff are really helpful and it is in a good location. Don't follow the directions on the hostelworld page as they are not very good.


Good breakfast, nice pool area and hammocks, clean kitchen. The flush didn't work for all the time I stayed in the Hostel. Two times there was no water. One morning there was instead of breakfast a big mess and staff sleeping on the couch. The washing machine didn't work. Under the bed was dust.
