This is a funky little place. We were welcomed with a glass of juice. Breakfast was quite large for a hostel and included table service. It was quite while we were there but met friendly travels. Location is close to barracks beaches, shops and restaurants.


This was the best hostel we have stayed at! Great staff who make the hostel a great atmosphere every night. Would def go back!

Beautiful house, art style. We had a huge and nice decorated room. Breakfast was very nice and different to what we had in other places (what we liked). Location (Barra) felt very safe. You need to take a bus to the historic center but it's within walking distance of beaches and restaurants. Very nice hostel!


Very nice place to stay. Staff is simply great, breakfast is very good, and rooms are comfortable and clean! I Recommend!
