When I try to communicate with staff by whatsapp was terrible. No one would answer my questions in there was fine. The review says their is aircon but we were only allow to use between 9pm and 9am. Breakfast is everyday the same thing what is fine, but who stays more than 3 days gets tired of. Wifi doesn't work every where in the hostel as well.


No one at the reception would speak other language but portuguese. Matresses are covered in plastic which turns out to be a really bad combination in such a heated city. Breakfast didn't meet my expectations.


Not much to say, you get what you pay for and not much more..


Basic, yet good value for money hostel for those on a budget. In a decent location that is walking distance to Metro station, and usual amenities. Friendly staff that were helpful and global mix of traveller's present during stay. Would happily stay here again and recommend.


Staff were very friendly and more than helpfull!!
