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

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.

The dorm rooms are quite small for 6 people, and the lockers do not necessarily fit a large backpack as they are intended to. When the air conditioning is working, the dorms stay cool enough. This is a welcome budget option for Belem - it is more expensive than some of the cheap hotels, but also more pleasant if you don't mind sharing a room. The staff are lackadaisical to the point of indifference, but seem to mean well enough if you press them. Don't expect them to volunteer any help, however.

The entire facility and staff was incredible, Rosa, Joao, Marqus, Sol; Simply wonderful people. The Guest there were smart, funny people who were patient and willing to explain things to a gringo lol and being my first experience with a hostel ever, it couldn't have been better! If your in Belem, Stay at Amazonia Hostel!!!

At walking distance from main turistic venues. Functional. Breakfast OK. Boy bedrooms at floor level are a bit noisy after 8 AM.

It is a beautiful old building, the showers were hot and the dorm room was comfortable. it had enough plugs for us to recharge our electronics. The staff was extremely helpful to a woman from Holland who had just arrived and learned that her ATM card had been cloned at an ATM machine in the Rio Airport. She had little money left and her card was cancelled. The staff let her use the phone to contact her bank and the Dutch Consulate as well as her mother so she could get money.

Good places in a great old house in a nice area. Price is extremely high. Breakfast is poor, no sweet things like jam or cake, strange that they have apples instead of local fruits. Room was not dark at night because of two windows to the main living room, noisy too. No internet!!! (just wifi).

I really didn't like staying at this hostel. The guys at reception were not really helpful on info, but that's all made up by the girls the next day, who helped me extremely well. Too strict on genders: males downstairs, females upstairs. Even the girl from reception wasn't allowed to enter and notice the bad smell in my windowless room, because it was a boys room... Problem got fixed with a spray, wherefore my gratitude! Wouldn't recommend, but there's not a lot of choice in Belem either...

A R$10 saving with an HI card which is decent if you've got one. The rooms are all pretty nice too & the kitchen well set out. Shocked at the lack of English spoken for an HI hostel (my bumballing Spanish just about got me through). The other slight disappointment was the free breakfast. Very nice food and very well presented, but only a very small amount of it. Not what i´d say most travellers are looking for! Right near the centre of town and near the docks for boat tickets to Manaus.
