The staff was helpful and nice, but one of the woman at the kitchen wasn't really nice, and not willing to help. My mattress was kinda old already. Other than that the hostel was pretty good.

something strange about the 9.0 overall evaluation. I wouldn't say the hostel is bad, but definitely is not also that good.


I just crossed one star less at staff because communication problems with english. But staff was all time friendly and helpful.

The hostel is very well located and near to historic center and other tourist center such as diving school and near to bus station (around 3 or 4 blocks). The staff is very helpful.


There were 3 of us in a room for 6 with an ensuite restroom. Beds were really comfortable, we were lucky to have the room only for us and the restroom was really clean. Breakfast was nice and staff was extremely friendly. They let us learn our baggage there even after our reservation was over.


Okay but not incredible


A good hostel for the common area and helpful staff however massively let down by the cleanliness and toilets in the 16 bed dorm we stayed in. They were dirty, flooded, had dirty underwear in and the toilets didnt flush properly. The other bathrooms seemed better on the lower floors. the kitchen was also a lil dirty. average breakfast. Had a good chill out area and a nice vibe and as the town is small the beach and shops are all in walking distance.


Instead our planned two nights, we stayed five nights in Mar dos Anjos. Perfect location, great people and good atmosphere! Thanks to the people who made our stay in Arraial do Cabo very nice, boa sorte no futuro!
