The staff knew nothing about the city or how their business was run. They were not professional at all since one employee kept playing computer games instead of giving us some useful information about touristic places, what to do in the city and stuff like that. No uniforms were worn to show their name or brand. I asked for maps to help get around the city without getting lost but no maps were available. Ends up I got lost a couple times. Shower was cold and bedding was kind of dirty too.
Good location, spacious dorms with big lockers, good breakfast, friendly staff.
Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Oswaldo in particular was very helpful in getting us up to speed with the hostel and was very useful in suggesting the main local attractions / places to eat & drink. Also we found no problem with not being able to speak Portuguese - it just required trial and error on both sides which was enjoyable to take part in. All in all a good base for Maceio and no hesitation in recommending.
