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.
