I stayed for 3 nights in a girl shared dorm. To get there is easy, the supermarket is just less than a block, located in a good neighborhood with busstop, close to the unswimmable (bcause of the sharks) boa viagem beach. The personal at the reception don't care to get closer to the hosts...they could be more friendly. bathrooms seemed to be not so often cleaned and there are no towel or paper to dry your hands. The breakfast was really poor and the staff didn't care if there was enough food


breakfast was ok. the rooms are very small and there are no room keys or lockers. Internet was fast and there are bunnies jumping around ;). there ist a huge supermarket 5min away. all in all it was ok.

Great Staff, location and environment, however, I thought the place could be better maintained for the price.


The hostel charged R45 per night, but the fans could only be turned on during certain time of the day. The location is good and the people were nice though. Breakfast starts and ends a bit early though. 7:00h to 9:30h


Nice hostel for a reasonable price


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.
