Breath of fresh air arriving here and meeting Phelia. This was fantastic meeting her and spending time here, I stayed an extra 2 nights and wish I had stayed more. All questions were welcomed and any help the staff could give they did including arranging a hire car for us. I miss Phelia already and would highly recommend staying here. Lots of laughs and great memories.

Such a great place! Stayed way longer than I planned because of the wonderful hosts and laid back vibe. Lots of space to hang out and great location. I really didn't want to leave. Thank you so much for the excellent stay:)

I really enjoyed my stay there- its in a top location with a beautiful garden and hammocks and a well equipped kitchen to cook. The owners offer great tips for getting to know the area. Loved the trip to the indigenous Jaqueira Reserve. We wouldnt have found the place without Phelia. Thanks a lot!

Great location on the cliff top just behind the church. Easy access to the beach and town, with lots of shops & food places. We had a private room. Not sure what the dorms were like. Nice layout with a terrace running along the private rooms, with a hammock, and garden with dining area. Room had mosquito net and ensuite. Breakfast was decent, fruit, bread with cheese & ham, cake etc. Friendly staff. Had a laundry service too. Kitchen seemed ok, but we didn't use it. A decent place.

Staff were friendly but not very helpful, not sure if it was because of the language barrier. Hostel is nice enough but the common area isn't that great so it was hard to meet people

We really enjoyed our stay in the hostel. It is really close to the city center, however calm and relaxed. The Brasilian/German owners and the rest of the staff are really nice and helpful, security is not an issue and hostel's atmosphere strongly profits its big common area and hammocks to chill out in. Breakfast is included; overall we experienced it as really good value for money compared to other hostels around.
