Good location, good breakfast and nice staff. No common room and no interaction with other guests. The room is really small with no locker.


This hostel is beautifully settled in a green garden, it's got a pool table and the breakfast is superb! I don't really know why the atmosphere is pretty much dead and the reviews not so good, because it really would have the potential!


It is a Hotel that they transformed into a hostel so they keep the good thinks as a great breakfast and other hostel services but are lacking things as atmosphere and a friendly staff. The staff was efficient but not friendly in general as it will be in a hotel I guess. They were arguing with each other quite often and the manager was arguing with staff in front of the guests. When the owner was there it was ok as he was friendly and gave us good advices. No atmosphere.


No wi-fi. Poor breakfast.

Friendly staff however we were left outside for sometime overnight as they couldn´t hear the doorbell over the TV they were watching. Our private room price jumped from 110 to 440 on a saturday night despite the hostel itself not being full.


Wi Fi doesn't work

it happens very offen in the island , this is all the truth


Nice, spacious wooden panelled room with sea view and fridge. Tiny bathroom. Kitchen and common area available to use but no one really there when we were so quiet. Breakfast really good with lots of choice. Convenient to reach pier, shops and trail to beach. One of the staff spoke English. Room was cleaned daily which was great! Space outside to hang wet clothing. This was one of the better places we stayed in in Brazil!


Overnativa is a 2 minute walk to the beach so great location. Most staff don't speak english so a little hard communicating. Awesome brekkie, can use the kitchen from 5pm-10pm. We didn't have power 2 out of the 3 days, it wasn't their fault and it's no biggy... They brought us lights and candles which was nice.
