It has a lot of space, it's located around the corner of all the restaurants and serve a very good breakfast.
Mixed reviews here, we had the 3 bed private room- loved the room, very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was awesome, great food and selection!! The wifi never worked though. :( That being said, the wifi rarely works anywhere in town. The tour office called ZEN tours has the best wifi in town. The staff doesn't let you use the kitchen to cook at night. (not sure about during the day since we didn't try). It's a clean nice hostel though, great breakfast. So, depends what you're after.
The breakfast was good and change every few days. They didn't tell us that we have to change the room, so we had a lot of stress one morning to pack all of our stuff and catch the bus for our day trip. We felt like they didnt like to talk to us because we don't speak portugues. So if we didn't ask them anything we got no information about our stay. We choose the hostel because there is wifi, but at all there was no wifi for nearly four days.
Breakfast was good - cake, sometimes warm breads, fresh juice etc. We were given free soap and the hostel was very clean. Staff didn't speak any English which, given that the National Park is a tourist destination, was a little frustrating and made visiting the park trickier. There was only 1 bathroom which was through the breakfast room and was shared between multiple guests.
Very nice place, thoughtful staff, and excellent location. It would be perfect if the rooms had air condition systems. Still, totally recommended.

The owner is amazing! She is so nice and helpful and found us great tour guides during our stay. Great breakfast. Good location near the center of town but on a quiet street.

An extremely warm welcome, one of the best breakfasts of our lives and quiet nights despite being located in front of reception in the hostel.. what more to say! A great choice.

El lugar está muy bien ubicado. La atención fue muy cálida y servicial. Encontramos mucha ayuda para organizar nuestra estadía. Estamos muy agradecidas. PD: el desayuno es delicioso.
My fiancé and I found Lua de Cristal to be an absolute gem! The staff were very friendly, the hostel was extremely clean, the breakfast was amazing (everything freshly baked to perfection) and the location is right in town which makes it easy to walk to restaurants and tour companies. It is more of a relaxation hostel as opposed to a party hostel - more like a hotel with minibar and beds made everyday. We would highly recommend it for a relaxing stay.
Lovely breakfast in the morning and helpful staff especially when trying to book trips etc. Great location in the centre of town
Claudinei was a really nice and helpful man! This pousada is family-oriented and a good place to relax and get a huge amazing breakfast before going on a hike. The hostel is very clean with a big common bathroom. Its a 5 mins walk to the small lencois center.
Very quiet and nice pousada close to restaurants and bars in central Lençois. The owner is extremely nice and helpful. Breakfast is excellent!
Was a really nice stay :) Can recommend it.
I had a very nice time staying here. the room was clean and spacious... breakfast just amazing! The location is very central, short walk from the bus station, the tour agency car picks you up from the door, and in the evening all bars and restaurants are few steps away. Great value for money. Highly recommended!
