The staff didn' communicate with each other which is really frustrating when your taxi to the airport in the morning isn't booked. We also had a miscommunication regarding the payment which we agreed on a payment date on day one. Every day we walked in or out of the hostel we got asked about the payment..... before the agreed date. The breakfast was also mediocre especially for the rate paid. If you don't speak Portuguese they make you feel out of place. Way too many mosquitoes.

The hostel is really close to Cristo, but a little far from the beach. But is really easy to take a bus or a taxi down the block. The family that owns the place is great! Awesome pool and good dorms. Definitely would stay there again!
