I really enjoyed the atmosphere, the place is right located up on the hill and guarantee a good view from the city. The staff also was there all the time and very prestative, helpful and pro active! I cant wait to go back this year.


Only stayed one night so didn't get to know anyone there. Not many people spoke English and the wifi didn't work half the time. The staff tried to be as accommodating as possible, anyway. Very close to the central area and all the tourist attractions, though. A beautiful place in a beautiful city.


Very nice hostel, staff don't really have English but we made do with sign language. Rooms are lovely


A good hostel, it's close to the center but also up a big hill. The hostel is nice and staff are good. It wasn't very social though

Hi, we're happy that liked our hostel. During this season, we all were a little bit tired because of the new year and the preparation for the carnival, thats why we didn´t organize any parties ou barbecues. sometimes depends on our guests start a barbecue or a walk in bars.


really nice hostel!staff fantastic and helpfull, place quiet and confortable, nice breakfast,huge garden,definitly my favorite hostel in Brazil in a wonderful city


It is the most lovely, nice, helpful hostel I have ever stayed! It is well located, near to bus stop and near to the man square. Staff is super helpful, from the owner (Lucas, a lovely guy!) from the people in charge of the cleanning and reception. The atmosphere is nice because you can feel you are at home!


Best hostel we saw in brazil in 6 weeks. The manager was unbelievably helpful; he helped us securing other hostels on the phone, gave us rides in his car to the bank and gave lots of good tips. There is a huge back garden with a wonderful view on the colonial city and lots of common space. All in all, really an excellent experience. We warmly advise this hostel.
