It is a good stay in Morro! Make sure, that you dont pay the deposit you already payed on hostelworld. For english travellers it is a bit hard, becuse most of the staff can not help you in English. However they are friendly.


Its a magical place with amazing people! Definitely the best hostel i ever been, the staff was amazing, lots of activities, dinners every night for a small price and all you can eat, its super safe and the location couldn't be better, its close enough to all the parties and there's no noise during the night. I stayed in a 6 bed bedroom with other two friends and was someone cleaning the room twice a day, so even when the room was with 6 people everything was clean. Stay here when you come!!!


comfortable hostel in a good location! would return, kitchen just needs a few more utensils.


Great hostel, mostly down to the people staying there! The location is great, very close to the boats, so it's a short walk which is great. The kitchen was quite dirty the whole time I was there and the rooms are tiny, nowhere to fit your bag. The chef Marcelo is really great, friendly and helpful with good English which helps a lot as the other staff don't speak any English.


Though a bit far from the beaches the hostel was great. Air con in the rooms and hot water in the shower. Wifi worked great and breakfast was delicious. Great hammocks and common areas to meet people! Computers for guest use..overall we had a great time!


The place to stay in Morro! the staff is the best


The island and the hostel are beautiful. Breakfast is good with lots of fresh fruit and juices. Staff are nice but they usually don't speak English and sometimes not even Portuguese, just Spanish, so it was hard communicating at times.


This hostel is just for young people. Lots of party, cheap dinner, but to noisy and really need maintenance. Recomended if you wanna party


Overall a decent hostel. The bathroom has seen better times and is very small. It can get very noisy from the common area where a lot of argentina backpackers make party until whenever. Locker is available and the rooms get cleaned evey day.


Great hostel, good facilities and nice atmosphere. Quite far away from the beach though, and in a place like morro de São Paulo that's a big minus.. Other than that everything was fine.


A bit walk away from the beach. Not very social atmosphere for a big hostel like this unles you want to get drunk at nights

Excellent! We really enjoy our stay at the hostel. The staff is grate, the location perfect.


Poor breakast. No Ham, cheese or eggs. Friendly Atmosphere, comfortable Beds. People are there on vacation. Party everyday. 20-25 years old. Valuable price


It's a party hostel. Really nice hostel and staff. Rooms are clean and spacious with air condition. Big common area with snooker table, ping pong, tv and play station and a nice + cheap bar! Cooking facilities could be better but you can eat for 15R at the hostel every night Overall really good hostel.


Great hostel, clean, safe, nice people, nice enviroment, will go back for sure!

This place is more like a hotel! Superb facilities - had a lot of fun playing ping pong! 10 minute walk from the beach which was ideal. The staff were also very helpful. Strongly recommend.


I really liked. The staff was very sympatic and the atmosphere was great, I ejoyed very much all the time I were in the Hostel. The breakfast was good too.

Dorms too small for 6 people.When everybody have big lugage, impossible walk in the room.No place to dry clothes, (in a beach town and you have to wash beach stuff everyday). Bathrooms also too small and shower not good.Must improve cleanliness and atention when there are insects making shelter on toilete walls.Sttaf ok, basic breakfast, crockery and cutlery not very clean.Comfortable and happy atmosphere is important, sttaf would worry less with parties.Noisy place.Good price.Well location.


The breakfast was really basic!
