The hostel is on one of the main streets so its easy to find and near everything you need. Natalia who works there was extremely helpful, friendly and approachable however the same cant be said for most of the other staff. In the 9 bed dorm, there wasn't much space but the ensuite bathroom was large and with a hot shower. The BBQ night was good and so was breakfast.
Very good hostel, especially their staff, which was so friendly and helpful. Rooms are very basic-but come on, check how much you payed!
I booked for 3 days and ended staying one month! The staff are the best ever. The free breakfast was the best I've had anywhere ever. Location is 30 seconds walk to the beach. Comfy beds. There's always staff cleaning somewhere. There is a bar in the hostel with good priced drinks, and a nice area indoors and outdoors to socialize. There are cheap meals that the hostel puts on that are soooo yummy. Thank you so much nico, natalia and vanessa you make this place amazing
The hostel was very pricey over the weekend, even though it wasn't quite full. The staff were helpful and they had an excellent common area. What marred it for us was an obviously drunk guy, ruining the atmosphere in the common area. Not the hostel's fault, though at some point I would have expected the staff to rein him in.
Nice spot. Cheap if you book online, they try to charge more if you go in person. Staff are English speaking and friendly. Common area has a cool vibe, free Caparinha at check in. The free breakfast is really good. The worst part is the rooms. Dorms are TINY for 9 people. Triple bunks with very little floorspace. So crowded when people are trying to get ready at the same time. Not enough lockers inside the room though there are some in the hallway.
This hostel is cheap but you really get what you pay for.... the 9 bed dorm is way too small, with three triple bunks in one very small room. Also, there are no comunal bathrooms or even toilets, so if you need to use bathroom you will have to wait for a very very long time if there are others showering etc. Breakfast and the communal areas are good, just the rooms are very bad.
A great hostel, friendly staff, perfect location and a good vibe. Breakfast is included and is an awesome spread of fruit, bread, coffee, etc. There were a few water issues when I was there and the shower wasn`t great, but the caipirinhas more than made up for it :)
The place is really dirty. They don't replace te beddings and cover for you, you had to ask for it. The beds and walls are reaking with a bad odor. My Friends had rashes after sleeping on the bed.
Was a very good vibe to the hostel, staff were helpful and friendly, not greatvwifibreception but your on an island so.... Rooms are cramped 9 bed bunks in a very small room, no one wants the top bunk very near to the ceiling and no communal shower rooms which means waiting for showers a lot. The location however is perfect and the communal rooms are cosy and welcoming, I enjoyed ,my stay there.
Excellent hostel!!! Really nice place and very friendly staff, they make food every nigth, you have to try the bbq!! Beds are confortable and every room has its bathroom. I will defenitly come back.
Perfect Hostel to stay!!!
