The very unstable wifi was the biggest down side.

We had a brilliant stay in Ouro Preto with Papa and Mama! The two owners and their family are so friendly and accommodating you almost feel like you're at home! It's a bit of a walk up the hill to get to the main square but you're going to find that anywhere in this village. Good breakfast in the morning and good banter from the owners...what more could you want?

Just down the hill from the main plaza. The owners of this hostel are very nice and accommodating and really love their beautiful town!

The best hostel experience I've ever had. The hostel is a very short (up) the main square where you find whatever you need and mama and papa ( the owners) will make you feel at home! Thank you so much for everything! The tips to what to do in the city, taking care of me and of course, the best cachaça tour ever! will come back for sure!

We had a fantastic time and felt like part of the family - definitely recommend staying here. The newly renovated hostel is a 5 to 10 minute walk to the main square. The place is clean and the beds are very comfortable (new mattresses). Most rooms have an ensuite which is a bonus. The service received was excellent, passing on history and tips for the area and organising trips. Breakfast was good with a variety of fruit and amazing cakes along with bread, ham and cheese.

The owners were absolutely lovely and helpful. giving information about what to do and see in town and even helping me plan my trip onwards to salvador. the hostel is located near the central square, very secure, clean. The breakfast is ok, compared to other Brazilian breakfast it was quite small but still nice. There is only one small common area which is part of the kitchen/dining area but a balcony that over looks the town. Showers and toilets in each dorm are kept clean

Really kind and attentive staff, always worried if we were ok and willing to share a cup of coffee. They have an outside area with a table, where breakfast was served, and the kitchen is really cute. Everything was nice and clean, although the bedroom seemed a little smaller and simpler to me than they look in the pictures, and I didn't see a bar at all, maybe for my fault, cause I stayed only for a night.

The best place to stay! You will feel at home sharing the family daily life. The owners are the sweetest persons ever. You get much more that what you paying for! Only a little inconvenient in the rooms: it is missing some space for luggages. But still I will go back there.

Brilliant treatment from Mama and Papa, they are very sweet and help you out in everything they can. The hostel it self, is very nice too, clean, cozy and close from the main square. Familiar atmosphere I clearly recommend it!!
