Seems to be run by a group of men, actually we don't know who worked there and who didn't so we had to hand our room keys into different people. It seemed like we were an inconvenience to them, completely unwilling to call a company and speak Portuguese for us. Very strict rule book which includes no eating on the sofa, no use of the fully functional kitchen or store stuff in fridge and no noise after 22pm but staff had loud party till 2am, no towels, cigerette burns on bedding, broken stairway,


Helpful and friendly staff. Atmosphere is..oh well..I wasnt sure if anyone was staying there. The hostel seems a bit deserted, as if it had been running some time ago, but not anymore. Location is ok. Not great to stay but good to get around with the metro nearby.
