The hostel is very basic. The mold and wee smell are true, and I did not like being in a room without window. Also there was no air-conditioning as mentioned in the description, they should change that! It is a beautiful old building and the location is excellent. It was good to be able to pick up tourist information there and they also offer tours.

Only there for three hours to be fair but didn't feel very comfortable or it was that welcoming personally. That's my opinion though. The breakfast choice seemed below average and was handed to you on a plate. You couldn't choose anything extra to eat. Try and add you own food to it if you stay here and the meal is important.


I didn't really like this place. It's really expensive, the rooms had no windows, the breakfast is a joke, the bathrooms are not clean, the staff is not really friendly, there are no maps or touristic information and the staff doesn't give you any advice,. the price por luggage storage is also too high, they have rules for everything..... the only good thing was the little terrace outside!


I stayed 2 nights. First night I barely slept. this hostel is super noisy. The AC was that cold that I had to ask for a blanker and they hadnt. They toilets were disgusting, I found what you can imagine floating couple of times. More than 25 USD for this place is a robbery. Anyway, the only positive point was the breakfast that was acceptable.


Unfriendly Staff and subdued atmosphere. Expensive for what it offers.


Cleanliness needs attention and I would give more effort while answering customer`s e-mails . I saw people complaining about shower , but actually you should consider that not having hot shower is normal in those parts of Brazil, so it`s fine. The staff who has a group called ``As Perigosas" or something like that is fun. :-) The hostel is well located, you can go by walk to Ver-O-Peso.


The price is too high. The breakfast is ordinary. Showers are too few and falling apart. But security is good and they do put the air con at night if you ask which is a bonus when it gets too hot. No cold drinks can be bought there.


My impression of HI hostels continue to get worse. Not even to have a map. A breakfast that was only good for us tourists to bond over making fun of it, and at a fairly expensive nightly rate. Also, an absurd extra charge for SAME DAY luggage storage. And make sure you dont lie down on the couch, even if no one else is around, thats only for sitting


Most of the time the receptionist can speak english. Whatever they do their best for helping you in the stay!


It's a pretty good hostel.

The bathroom is awful, the hostel is expansive ( you have to pay to leave your bag!), and the staff doesn't seem to care about you (exepted for the café da manha)

I didn't really like this place. The rooms had no windows. The air con was freezing at night. You have to pay to store your bag. It's very expensive for a hostel (but there's no competition in Belem so they can charge what they want). Someone stole my food out of the fridge which is the only time this has happened to me. However, the cheap hotels in Belem were disgusting so you're better off staying here or finding a decent hotel. One girl spoke very good English and was very helpful.


1.) The receptionist was incredibly slow. When we arrived at around midnight, it took her nearly half an hour to understand the hostelworld-booking-policy. Then she calculated the wrong amount because she forgot the deposit which was already paid. 2.) The facilities need to be renovated. The toilet and shower doors are without locks, it’s very dark in there and in the shower you find steel bolts (like screws or something) mounted at the wall right next to you, which is very dangerous. In additio


very noisy location, staff doesnt help much, no windows in the dorm.


Worst hostel on my trip. Don't get me wrong, it's not a place were you can't stay. It's clean, but my room didn't smell very nice, the toilets and showers were all in *one* big room and I wasn't able to lock the toilet doors. Furthermore the breakfast was good, but you just get one of everything, one juice, one yogurt, one bun, etc The main drawback is that it's totally overpriced for this quality! We moved after the first day to another hostel which costs nearly half the price and was much bett


Well located, close to the main avenues and bus stops. The shared bathroom could have some improvement, like stuffs to hang your clothes and towels. The sink could be inside the bathroom and not outside, so people would not need to brush their teeth in the middle of the hallway.. The breakfast is ok (bread, egg, 1slice of cheese, 1 slice of ham, yogurt and coffee)


The hostel was ok in terms of cleanliness and location, but nothing special in terms of atmosphere or friendliness. The bathrooms aren't great, and then there's a crazy system of only having a girls bathroom on the top floor and a boys bathroom on the bottom floor, despite having mixed dorms on both floors...

No-frills place in an old mansion, with a smallish TV room and a decent dining room. Mosquitoes were bad when I was there, which may be a seasonal thing, and the air-conditioning could have been a lot stronger at night. Bed wasn't too comfortable, which is normal for Brazilian hostels. Has the price tag of a really nice, social hostel with the facilities of a no-frills budget place, but unfortunately that's Brazil, I think this is the best option in Belem. Staff was friendly.


Its very much what you expect from HI hostels. Lovely building. Not too much english spoken by the staff. Not tours or anything offered by the hostel. Its basic but safe and mostly clean


You need to know a little bit of Portuguese to communicate with the staff.
