You may be better suited finding a garbage dump and sleeping next to that on a cobblestone road. We arrived to a shirtless owner/employee who had a butterfly bandage between his eyes who apologized for not having our requested rooms available which we had booked about 6 months in advance. He then placed us in a room in which the stench was so horrible, we immediately had headaches due to the horrible sewage type odor that was prevalent. We left and booked another room elsewhere.

Hi It clearly seemed the person running the hostel was not the usual owner / manager and had no idea on how to run a hostel. The hostel was unclean and most of services that they claimed to have either did not exist (breakfast) or didn't work (internet). The main staff member had no knowledge of our booking. Ben


Great location & we had a reasonable room with good facilities. Not the cleanest of places.


Great staff, friendly and chilled. Excellent location also. Bathrooms are good but could be a bit cleaner. Great place though

The room was nice but the other areas were a bit shabby. Although the listing calls it a Bed and Breakfast there was no breakfast on offer.


The hotel is clean and nice. The housekeeper is very friendly! However there is no real friendly atmosphere.


Friendly, accommodating, and nice view from room.

I really liked Bira, the owner of the pousada. I found the place really clean and nicely decorated. I didn't really understand why there were so few people... The pousada has everything to bring people together as well as in touch with Bira's family.


Dormroom is a little small. Good location and good value for money.
