Cozy place. Loved the rabbits and the staff. The location was perfect for me. Buses to any direction I wanted. I guess I will have to go back to Recife and probably will stay at Cosmopolitan again.

Nice place. Pleasant staff. The facilities could be more well cared. Regarding the location, the neighborhood buildings are mainly offices, so they're quiet and calm, except during the day. There is a children school on the side of the hostel. There are noise and child screaming only during the day, so its OK. During the night, the surrounding blocks are dangerous. It's not recommended walk on the streets, specially for women. I advise to just walk in groups at night. Related to parties, I can´


I loved this hostel. The locations was just great for me. They are really close to two main avenues full of buses going to lots of places. It is so cozy and charming. The rabbits are super cute. People are great there as well. Adorei esse hostel. A localização para mim foi ótima, eles ficam próximos de duas avenidas principais cheias de ônibus que vão para vários lugares. O hostel tem seu charme e os coelhos são super fofos. Os funcionários são tão fofos quantos os coelhos rsrs.

The hostel is a bit far from Central Recife but is located in a nice neighbourhood with a beautiful beach. Staff are English speaking and helpful. The dorms are comfortable if a bit cramped in space and the property could do with a few more toilets but both these and the showers are clean. Breakfast is typically Brazilian and sufficient. There's a computer for guest use and good wifi. The atmosphere is good here and the hostel is located close to a large supermarket. I would stay here again.
