i am now travelling in south america since 3 months. this was the best hostel until now. everything is clean. the rooms, the bathrooms, the showers (i also want to mention that sowers and bathrooms are spacious). the beds are very comfortable. the stuff is absolutely lovely. i arrived very early in the morning (around 6 o'clock) and although the hostel would be closed at that time, they agreed on receiving me. they also give a lot of information about cultural events and parties etc.

Very friendly staff and good place to meet other travellers. The 6-bed dorm where I stayed is well spaced. Good breakfast, well-equipped kitchen if you want to cook. Like the laundry area where they have a small courtyard to dry out clothes. The common rooms would feel definitely more cosy with better lighting.

Amazing place with the best owner ever!! Just around the corner from a main shopping/bar/restaurant street. Cool common area, really good for meeting people. Great breakfast with tons of fruit, pastries, and freshly made juice every morning. Spacious rooms. Good computer for guests to use. One of my favorite hostels in Brazil!

Great hostel with very a friendly owner and staff. It felt like staying with old friends. The location is perfect, and within a 1.5 minute walk from one of Ouro Preto's must-see sights, Igreja Matriz de Nossa Senhora do Pilar. Facilities are clean, and the hostel has a home-like atmosphere.

Amazing hostel! Very comfortable and friendly atmosphere. They accommodated our early arrival and very helpful throughout. Owner even took us on hike to waterfall and recommended great bars! Pleasant and quiet stay in the mountains :)

More fruit with breakfast. We found that breakfast was mostly baked goods, so some more variety would be good.

We LOVED this hostel in such a beautiful old town. It's location is fantastic, an easy walk to everything. The staff are great...really friendly and helpful. Thanks to Jorge and a special thanks to Angela for all the help. Breakfast was great...very typical Brazilian fare...all fresh and delicious every day. Great huge locker drawers, under bunk beds. Laundry facilities, which were a real bonus for us. We hated to leave, and we would definitely stay here again.

A small hostel, max 6-10 people around. Breakfast was good.owner was helpful. I would say its a place in line with the "Ouro Preto style"

I had a really nice stay at Goiabado com Queijo during our trip in Ouro Preto. Lidiane - the Hostel owner - is a very kind person, always taking care of every detail for a perfect environment.

Good hostel; not too far downhill from the main square, homely atmosphere and very friendly owner/ host. Recommended.

I rarely give 100% ratings but this place is close to perfection of what a hostel should be: small - only 10 beds or so, clean - the cleaning lady was meticulously doing her job every morning, friendly - the owner/host actually lives on-site herself, cooking facilities+breakfast, free Internet and wifi. The only problem is that apparently it's normal for the local students to party till 4am in the streets, so bring a pair of ear-plugs if you are looking for some sleep.
