It's a good, friendly place to saty. Great location! Some things were not working, though, like the shower. And the kitchen was quite dirty.

This was a really laid back place with a really friendly and helpful host (even though we couldn't communicate with him very well because our Portuguese was terrible). Breakfast isn't included, but is well worth the extra (small) cost for lots of fresh fruit, eggs, toast and coffee. A great location near the boat landings and a short walk from a great beach on the eastern side of the island. Recommended.


Very basic but nice place. Good value for money and the owner is very friendly.


I liked more of Encantadas than Brasília, so the HOSTEL is very good place for me. Pedro is an greqt guy, good energy and very helpful. The Island is very safe despite there is no public lighting. There are no lockers at the rooms and the lockers in reception are too small and the doors dont have keys. It is a very simple and cheap HOSTEL. It was excelent for me


Great friendly staff in a beautiful location

Pedro, who runs the hostel was really accommodating when we had to leave early one morning. The breakfast was good, with fresh fruit and bread. Pedro, was helpful and friendly.


Great location very close to 2 beaches, a few shops, a restaurant and bar. Nice chill out area with a few hammocks. Gave us plenty of extra blankets and his sleeping bag when it got a bit chilly in the evening. Fresh breakfast on the first day. The owner was so lovely


Lovely little island hostel with a warm host Pedro! Pedro was lovely
