My issue isnt so much that the hostel was removed so far the town (which, beware, it is), but more so that the Hostel doesnt have the facilities to account for this distance. No guest fridge or kitchen, no major common areas, and the hostel compound itself doesnt quite offer the "chilled out" atmosphere it advertises, particularly for a town like Lencois. However, the staff more than compensated for these faults in being one of the friendliest hostel teams I've ever stayed with. Big ups to Cesar
The best thing about Pousada Chill Out is its multilingual and incredible helpful owner Michael. He is a character, with amazing stories, seems to know everyone in town, and if you get to spend some time with him, you will get to know a few characters in Lencois also. He goes out of his way to be helpful. The hostel is a little outside town, up a hill, but it is en route to some of the most accessible hikes, so its in the right direction. Looking forward to returning. Obrigado!
Chill Out is a wonderful hostel located right next to the entrances of several Chapada trails and a very short walk away from the city center. We had a transfer from the bus station when we arrived at 5:30am and were allowed to sleep for a bit before having a big, delicious breakfast and heading out for our hike. We also were able to shower after check-out which is great after spending the day hiking & swimming. The staff was very friendly. Lockers in the room would've been nice.
A really great hostel and we loved our stay. It has a great atmosphere and the staff was great, trying to help us when we needed something and served good breakfast. Though the second day I felt really bad after the breakfast, throwing up the hole day. Please try and keep all food fresh cause it destroyed the "big travel day" for me. We got travel information right away which was great, though it was sad that the staff did not speak english.
