Hostel was good, staff very helpful. Dorm top bunks are super high with strange detachable ladders and no side rails. Not a nice experience for sleeping but they're in new condition and clean so that's all good. Breakfast very basic in my opinion, just bread and cereal no cheese, ham, banana etc which would not cost much to offer and at least let u eat something that wasn't just sugar. Not very social (I chose if for it being social) but it's getting to low season so can't be helped.
No group activities in the hostel organized by staff, thus everyone was on his own more or less. Safety boxes under the bed partly broken, which made even a lock useless
The hostel is clean but there is no bar an you can't bring outside drinks in. People end up just drinking in the street. We also got horrible directions on how to get to pipa. They told us the bus station is 15 minutes from the hostel by taxi when it is 30 . We missed our bus because of this. Nice guys but bad information.
The top beds were too bigh with unstable ladders so it was a real pain going up & down. You had to jump off rickety ladder to reach floor. The excursion company they push is really not good. Twice we did trips with them :bad attitude buggy drivers and Mass tourism. They should offer smaller companies\more choice.Andre was super helpful, a nice host and gave great information (Sebastien was opposite). Not much to do in Natal besides excursions
Thank you so much for all your help and advice with me. Appreciate it a lot
A nice hostel with clean rooms, a really nice breakfast and little monkeys who live on the big tree at the yard of the hostel! They usually come out when it rains and they are extremely cute! The road the hostel is on gets very quiet at night and feels a little isolated but other than that the hostel is near a beach, a club and a supermarket.
It was realy good in the Hostel. I have only one point: Our Lock in the room was damaged. But we din't need one.
The place is amazing! Near everything, including the best beach of Natal and the nightlife. The staff is awesome, very helpful and cheerful. The dorm I stayed had a few mold spots on the ceiling and in the air-conditioner, they should definitely look into that. Also, they could add a few more power sockets in the dorms, my dorm had 4 beds and only 2 power sockets. Reading lamps over each bed would be nice too.
