The beds and lockers could be in better conditions (not all lockers were able to lock). Breakfast could be a little earlier than offered, so that the guests that want to do early activity can start early the day. The facilities are not in the level of the price, but the location is very good. The staff is very gentle. In overall, the experience was good.
The shared bathroom didn't have hot water and could be cleaner.
I really had a great time there, it´s good for making friends and hang out, I recommend it.
Met amazing people and had a brilliant time. The hostel wasn't perfect, but I've stayed in much worse places. I'd recommend it as a place to stay.

It was a great experience. I totally recommended it.. I would stay again in the same hostel. The people on the desk helped me a lot.
I just stayed one night but i spent a good time. Neighbors were silent and breakfast was good enough. It is very well located!

Good safe area, nice hostel and good beds with decent sized lockers! Bathroom could have been a bit cleaner but overall a good place!
Ok, but but beware of the triple bunks and don't go buying any tours or tickets from them. More of a relaxed hostel than social.
This hostel is full of Brazilians on holidays in groups and so if your on your own and don't speak Portuguese your alone as they will not make an effort. Thankfully I was with a friend but just pointing out to lone travellers. Also I didn't think the staff were very helpful. They answered the basis questions. On plus side though the breakfast was great and handy having big lockers in rooms. Would be good if staff organised pub crawls to get the people to interact more
There was just one bathroom on the floor I was staying in, so the shower was always busy. Also, the shower curtains were nasty! But the hostel it's nice and breakfast is good.
The location near the beach and restaurants and shops is unbeatable. Also, the common areas are really comfortable and nicely situated. Bathrooms were the big complaint. There was only one on the same floor as 24 beds, and it was pretty nasty. There are plenty of other showers/toilets at the bak of the hostel, but it's a bit of a hike.
