Hey Petri! The showers have been fixed, it was a problem with a pressure tank. Now they are fully functional again. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Love this hostel! Great location - close to the beach and your choice of supermarkets, restaurants, bars, etc. Great space and very clean. Best of all is the vibe. A few drawbacks: cash only, which is more common in Brazil than in other countries, but it's a bit frustrating since it's one of the more expensive hostels. Also, the showers are a bit wonky. Hot water for 30 seconds, then cold, then hot, etc. Would definitely recommend, though. By far one of the best hostels in Brazil!


It was by far the best hostel i've ever been. It's very close to the beach. The staff is amaizing. Thanks Andrea, Yai, Ari and Cris. You contributed to make my trip the best experience of my life.

Great location, very friendly staff, very good facilities and a chance to meet travelers from all over the world.


Very friendly staff, very helpful. Nice communal space, relaxed atmosphere and a cool crowd.


Could do with air con in all the bunk rooms as despite the fans provided it was very stuffy at night. Staff were great and a credit to the hostel.

My stay here was a memorable one. I just loved the vibe, the people and the staff here. Due to its categorization it tends to attract a certain type of traveler. For me this worked well as I got along well with them quite well :) The staff here are really nice, they go out of their way to ensure you're settled in. The place is super clean and very comfortable. I must admit that I am not a traveler that stays at hostels but after this experience I am definitely going to try a few more.
