Reasonable hostel, bit quiet when i was there, great staff. SUPERhelpfull and experienced travellers themselves. 1min from downtown.


Nearest the most important churches and places in the city. The rooms are big.


Nice Place and good located to the Busstaion and Center( 3-5in walk).it was nice to stay there and the owner is a young and friendly men how help with everthing. The place can still improve the rooms are nice just the 14 bed dorm ist not so comfortable because located in the basemant and not very atractive. besides this everthing fine and a good hostel breakfast with fresh Bred, Cheese, Bacon, Cake,Banana, Juice,Milk and Coffee in the morning.

Most of the staff speaks good English. Hostel is very quiet - at the moment I am the only guest here. If you are walking from the bus terminal - take a stairs uphill at the gas station after some minutes of walking - they are quite obvious.


Really quiet place, I was the only one staying there. The staff was friendly but didn't speak much English. Good location 5 min walk to the bus terminal and 5 min to the historic center but it was a narrow street where I didn't feel safe walking home at night.


The Buena Vista Hostel was great choice during the time I spent in Ouro Preto. Perhaps it hasn't the best facilities in the city, but almost everything is clean and works good, besides the staff guys that are very nice folks!
