Wort a second visit. Relatively quiet hostel with safe parking and nice pub.


Great hostel. Lots of safe parking. Good, friendly staff and nice size rooms. Great bar area. Healthy breakfast included. Good place to stay indeed.


Breakfast is cloded st 10 AM, which was a bit disappionted Because of the Carnival week it ment long nights out, would have been nice to have a late breakfast Gladly the supermarketbis not too far and the use of the kitchen is good


Good stay. Everything you really need. Quiet when we were there but can imagine it is a fun hostel when busy! Decent breakfast as well.


Good value for money and nice people.


The staff were helpful when asked but they didn't really show us around where things were and didn't seem too welcoming compared to other hostels. Good location and wifi.

Nice location on fairly quiet residential street, walking distance to historic center and blocks away from highly recommended brew pub Hop n' Roll (Rua Mateus Leme 950). Staff is kind and helpful. Breakfast was only weak part, with cold bread and instant coffee. Overall would definitely recommend. Good value.

This is a good place to stay in Curitiba but the dorms get very cold at night. Some staff members speak English and are helpful. It´s a 15 minute walk from the downtown area but a long walk from the bus station. The toilets are clean and plentiful and there´s hot water for showers. The usual Brazilian breakfast of bread, ham, cake, fruit and coffee are served too. The kitchen is clean but could do with more plates and cups. There are lockers in the rooms and the wi fi is good.


Clean, but with disorganized staff.

Nice hostel with very good staff. They spoke some English and were willing to help us decide when and how to see the sights of Curitiba. They also provided transportation (for a small fee) to several of our destinations, including the airport. The location is good, a short walk from the Niedemeyer Museum as well as the historic center with some of the bars. The hostel had a pool table, a computer for public use, and good clean beds. But the showers did not have great hot water.


Overpriced but that was the case for everything during the World Cup, but staff were great.


Super friendly and helpful staff. They will help you with anything you need.


Awesome staff

Well managed and run for a reasonable price in world cup time. City itself doesn't have a lot but no complaints with hostel itself


Great staff and excellent at organizing things for guests. The only downside of this place is that it's freezing inside the hostel in the winter time.


I went to Curitiba during the World Cup period. The hostel had a very helpful staff, which helped me to set my itinerary. They also organized a good night out for churrascaria for us. I felt that the staff did a very good job overall. The hostel was around a 15-20 minute walk from one of the city centers (Centro Historico), which have a few bars. As is the case with most of the hostels, I thought the price-increase too much (around 3x) during the period where they had games in Curitiba.


Great staff

The facilities here were excellent. Plenty of bathrooms and the showers had very hot water! I was lucky to be in the "big brother" room which is separate from the main part of the hostel and it's a lot quieter. It also has it's own bathroom with showers. The staff was ok, helpful at times but bridal at other times. Their line computer is a dinosaur but it still works. I would stay here again.


Great place to stay. Staff were fantastic, lots of fun and very helpful. Great beer on draft and comfortable beds. Roddy in reception is a legend. Thanks for everything guys, definitely stay there again. John and mark aka irish boys. Ps say bye to George


First night close to reception very noisy due to some party going on in common area really late. The lady at reception was excellent, good advices! Breakfast pretty poor.
