I love the hostel! It is in a great location in Boa Viagem! The hostel is very unique, and the rooms are great. During my stay the weather was not nice at all, but the people in the hostel made everything so much better!

Pros: Near the beach, supermarket and buses. Cons: It's on the 3rd floor of an office block. The 4 bed dorms are inside the 8 bed dorm. One shower and toilet for 16 people. No breakfast, and nowhere to get breakfast. You have to dodge heavy traffic to get to the beach. Other than pizza/burgers there are no restaurants nearby, no cafes and no bars. You have to go to Boa Viagem (3km) or Recife (7km). Prostitutes outside. Bad/no wifi. Cash only up front. Some staff have limited English.

Hello, Pirate! It was a pleasure to have you as our guest these past few days! You know the most important thing for us? It is your opinion. It is through it that we have been able to improve the service offered! So... Grateful for your evaluation! <3 Our location is wonderful, 50 meters from Boa Viagem beach, surrounded by restaurants, bars, markets, nightclubs, etc. We are on the roof of an old building where is impossible to have lift. But... We have strong and helpful Pirates-Hosts. The next time you come here, be sure to ask their help with your luggage, they will be VERY happy to help! Before opening the hostel, we have visited more than 180 hostels in several countries. We brought the best ideas. We spent 3 months implanting and over 10 years perfecting. The concept of our hostel is based on "sharing". We've tried to avoid, in the establishment of the hostel, to create a rigid structure. For more convenience, we have a bathroom next to each room (9 bathrooms across the hostel). However, we are always perfecting our space, besides open and receptive to new ideas and suggestions. Soon we'll have more upgrades. The important thing is always to try to improve the structure as a whole. Once again, thanks for your tips. We will have more options soon. Indeed, our rates do not include breakfast, as they are fit-promotional rates. However, we offer some items (tropical fruits, black coffee, over 15 types of teas, cookies and biscuits). In addition, we have a fully equipped kitchen where you can prepare a breakfast at the lowest price and customized for you. In the same building where we are located, there is a "Minuto Pão de Açúcar" where you can buy some item to complement your meals. At the reception there is a map with 6 places where you can have breakfast in a walking distance. We are super close to Boa Viagem beach, only 50m. There is a traffic light with a crossing point near the hostel, where you can cross safely. We are in the most tourist place in town, we are surrounded by many kinds of restaurants, there are burger, kilo, japanese, churrasco, sea food, street food... On our info board, there is a map with a lot of places (restaurantes, pubs, bars, etc) where you can get good food in a walking distance. Btw, near us you will find the best cafés in town, Borsoi and Kaffe. check it up! Prostitutes: As we are in a tourist area, they show up yes! We respect their job and they respect us. Let's hope for more quality in their lives. We currently work with two Internet providers, Vivo and Oi, and we have the largest data plan available in the region. However, sometimes, in fact, the operator's signal suffers some interruptions. We have already contacted operators as well, and we are also working on an alternative to solve the problem regardless of the positioning of both. Staff and English: People working during the day at our front desk speak english. Luigi was happy to help you when you needed. People doing the nightshift don't speak good english, indeed. We will try to improve that. Relating to the credit card, we are evaluating the possibility. Always welcome to Recife and our Hostel! Hugs from Recife! :)

Definite recommend - cool setting, shared kitchen is lovely, great chill out spaces. Had a real community feel to it. Only downside is the fee number of bathrooms and the stairs (no elevator)

A social and inviting hostel with great atmosphere. A welcoming kitchen space with tempting biscuits and coffee 24/7 - the perfect place to meet other travellers. The owner is a lovely man who has put thought into the key items a traveller wants: shelves & electricity plugs above your bed, good shared spaces. No breakfast, but a clean kitchen & a grocery store just around the corner. Beach is very close. Staff are mostly volunteers- which unfortunately means they too do not know the city.

It is your opinion, it is through it that we have been able to improve the service offered! So ... Grateful for your evaluation! <3 In fact, we love working with volunteers and they come from different parts of Brazil and the world, but all of our hosts who work at the reception during the morning shift are local and know pretty well the region. In addition, we have a billboard at the reception with various information about tours and services, in Portuguese and English. The next time you stay with us, look for a local host or ask a volunteer to locate someone. We will be happy to assist you. Always welcome to Recife and our Hostel! Hugs from Recife! :)
