Nice location on Arrajals Main Street, lots of Restaurants and Bars next door, beach 8 mins away. Rooms are just fine, we stayed in a shared dorm and a private dorm (which was very spaceious and had its own bathroom, just like the shared dorms. TVs in every dorm). Breakfast is served every morning from 8-10 and it's more than decent! The Staff doesn't speak english, but theyre friendly and try to help you out with your questions and problems. Would def. stay here again!

Clean place, with linen included, on the main street of the city and relatively close to the beach, Breakfast is simple, but ok. Cost-benefit is worth.

The place was clean, and the staff very nice, they have a very nice bbq area, brakfast is very good, however, internet doesn't work all the time, goes on and off and the air conditionate doesn't run all the time, only at nights, in general a good place to stay, close to the main beaches and atractions.

Really cute hostel, close to many shops, restaurants and bars. The beach is just 10 minutes walk away. Friendly staff and good price, I would definitely recommend.

The hostel itself was good the rooms were big, quite clean; despite this our experience was negative, like other reviews we had read, this place can be let down by staff. On arrival they seemed to have no reference of our booking, we were shown to dorm despite saying we had booked a private & paid for it. When we left we were told we hadn't paid and needed to pay. After some debates and phone calls it was agreed we had paid. Also there was a lot of noise most nights from music being played.

Nice place to stay and right where things happens in Arraial. I would very likely return there at another opportunity.

Like being at home! It is very quiet, because it is not on the road. It looks great. There is this friendly atmospere. Nice hammocks, central area and so on! I loved it; totally recommend it to you!!

LOVED the hostel, it was new, clean and cheaper than all the others around there. It was on the main street, the best location. One girl, Krishna was very helpful, the other staff not so much. It would have been nice to be shown a map with basic bits around town and good beaches, etc when we arrived but when we spoke with Krishna (In english), she knew everything. NThey played music quite loudly early in the morning which was a bit dis-respectful but... more time on the beach!!

The Mox is superb, excellent and cheap. Best facilites among all the hostels i´ve been in Brazil. Great location and close to the hip bars and discos. The only thing is that it was too quite for lonely backpackers, but it was winter, maybe that´s why.

MOx is perfectly located in Arraial - right near restaurants, bars, shopping & transport. It was a little quiet when I visited because of low season but still there were people to talk to. Everything was clean & the facilities were good - including the internet. But for me its always the staff that make the hostel...and here the staff were great, super friendly & always happy to help...and very patient with my very basic portuguese! I hope to come back to visit in summer!

Great location in the main strip. Security was pretty good with lockers in the rooms. Staff were helpful. Clean facilities with all the usual stuff. Wifi was a bit weak sometimes but mostly ok. Our 6 bed dorm would have been pretty cramped with 6 people in it, but it wasn't full for us. I'd recommend this hostel to a friend who was going there.

Good hostel with all the right facilities, just a bit lacking in atmosphere and character. Maybe just because it was low season and therefore a bit quite. Otherwise, suited us perfectly.

Brand new hostel with great facilities and very helpful, english speaking staff most of the time. The rooms are very clean, modern and include a fridge and bathrooms. The hostel is also on the best street full of restaurants and shops which leads to the beach.
