The hostel was a nice place, and had a great location. The room was a bit messy, and although I saw the bathrooms being cleaned, I don't think the room was cleaned at all. I would still go back, the staff is great.

A decent hostel with nice layout and interesting features to it. Not a fan of the town but a fan of the hostel for sure. Helpful staff!


Eco Hostel isn't realy clean, but the staff is rs realy helpfull and nice! I can recomend the hostel, even my rating is "only" 83%...


The staff were helpful and friendly, they even organised.a movie night when the weather wasn't great. Really lovely hostel


A bit pricey but hey, it was World Cup time. A happening hostel right near the park, a centre of Porto Alegre life, and just around the corner is the bar scene and restaurant centre.


Horrible stay. Our room was given to someone else so had to stay in a 8 bed dorm which was a converted garage outside the main building. Outdoor lights left on all night meant no sleep, until we moved into the common room and selpt on the sofa instead. Really poor after high expectations. Would not recommend.


Bedbugs bit me at Eco Hostel Porto Alegre. I bites on my right arm, not too far from my armpit and I was a victim of bites on various other parts of my body. I had to wash my clothes a couple of time and also buy a product to spray my clothes down. In a nutshell this hostel cost me money thanks to their bedbugs. I took a photos of a couple bedbugs at the residence so I'm 100% they were there.Thanks Eco Hostel. Two Laundries were 50 reals and the spray was 18 reals, plus cost of bed with bedbugs.


Despite the high price due to the lack of competition in the city, staff and location makes it a good option. All guests were complaining about the meager breakfast.


It's a good surprise this hostel in POA.


Good location, but the staff is very aloof and rude. It took the front desk girl around 2 minutes to look up from her computer to greet me. She told me they don't take credit cards when they actually do, and she put me in a 10 bed dorm when I booked a 5 bed one. No explanations, no apologies. Also, I asked her about Gramado which is a very famous spot near Porto Alegre, not only she didn´t have any info on tours, she didn´t even know where it was! Not coming back there again, that's for sure.

Small hostel but in a good location. Rooms are also small with a lot of beds. Average breakfast. There is only one bathroom down stairs, by the kitchen, so had to wait a long time for showers. However shower is good and hot. Nice lounge area with TV, beanbags and sofa. Go to the 'dirty old man ' cocktail bar around the corner!


Hugely overpriced for what is essentially an average at best hostel. The staff, while friendly, weren't helpful and made no attempt to explain any of the facilities in or around the hostel. Handed a map with no explanation of where we were of what was close by - its such a little thing but would make a difference. Cleanliness could be better, especially the bathrooms - I also don't understand why there is a men's bathroom upstairs and then if you're female a unisex one as far away as possible?


This was the third time I stayed at this Hostel. By far, the best option in Porto Alegre.


Only stayed one night but staff were amazing as we were leaving at 5am in the morning and they had breakfast ready for us! Really nice staff, beds really comfy and great duvets. Toilet/ shower us small but manageable.


Pretty good hostel, the staff is really helpful. The location is in heart of the nightlife, there is everything around and a good park to recover from hangover.

Thank you so much for your review! We are always trying to keep our staff as informated as possible, and able to give any sort of information at any time! The location is one of our best points: close to everything and more than that we're in a safe neighborhood. You can walk at night fearless and you will find all kinds of pubs, clubs and restaurants. We hope to see you again!


Very nice hostel, my place in Porto Alegre. hoping forward to going there soon!

And we're hoping forward to see you soon! We have made a lot of changes since you've been here! For example: now our rooms are equipped with air conditioning and heating! Take care! :)


Very nice hostel, central, clean, I've been there only one day...

Thanks for your review! We believe that there is nothing worse than a dirty hostel, so we have increased our cleaning staff in order to improve it! We also have the best location, close to everything and in a really safe neighborhood. :)


It's a good hostel, very well located, but is not too fun. Most people who stay there are living there while studying in Porto Alegre. And the Hostel has no bar and you have to be silent after 10 p.m., so people don't interact too much. I didn't find the fun I was looking for in a hostel. But if you want just a good place to sleep, this is a good place.

We are in the best location of Porto Alegre which is really safe, close to the best pubs, bars and clubs of the city, and because of that we encourage our guests to enjoy the nightlife rather than staying at the hostel. If our guests wants to party at the hostel there's no problem as long as they respect the fact that there is other guests who wants to sleep, right? :) Thank you for your comment, we appreciate that! See you!


we spent only a night at the hostel. the location and atmosphere seemed very nice, and the staff was very helpful. the rooms and toilets were nice and clean.
