The staff is awesome. They will maybe have to focus on the cleanliness of the toilets and the room of 8 is a bit caotic. The room of 4 is fantastic.


It's budget accomodation and you get what you pay for... If you want to save a few bucks it's perfectly adequate.


It's a great hostel, the guests are always interacting and you can make plenty of friends. The bathrooms and rooms are quite dirty, but for that price that's what you get.


Very good atmosphere, definately would stay again.


You get what you pay for! Very cheap for great location but it is filthy!! Beds sheets were gross, bunks were old, bathroom disgusting! No lockers in our dorm room. Very cramped and hot :(


Upon walking in to the Hostel I couldn't tell who was in charge. Infact the entire 4 days I was there I was guessing who was working there. The workers were nice though. there is nodinner table or chairs just one old couch and breakfast is extremely simple. Bathroom was disgusting. one toilet for 12 people and couldnt flush. i hated using the restroom here the floor was always wet and this place seemed completely unsannitary. but 25 reais a night is worth it i guess.


staff very nice and helpful but we don't like so much the bed, very inconfortable. I'm pretty sure the manager is going to change it for the next travelers. The common are very small.


Breakfast included was bread and butter. The 8 bed dorm was so small, you couldn't move around.

It is very small so you dont have anywhere to stay as a comun room for everyone its cheap so you can expect what you pay dont think that is 5 stars The staff is ok but one of the brazilean girls is very mean and doestn speak another language it is well located close to many bares in a good area and the supermarket is on front


Staff didn't seem to sure what was going on. hostel was tiny and dark with very few, tiny, windows. social are was so small it felt hard to meet people. The space between the beds was so small only one person could walk between them at a time.
