everything you should expect from a normal hostel. clean, friendly staff, quiet, well located


The hostel is clean, easy to reach and has good atmosphere. It is very good and I definitely recommend it if you travel in Fortaleza. Location: Good. You are between the market near the beach. Also very near to Tobosa street, which is a good area for shopping.Hospitality: Good and helpful. The owner is very polite. He can speak several languages and he is always ready to help you out and give all the info you might need. He also can organize some transfer for you. Good value for money


The staff hensured my trip to Jericoacoara was planned and easy. In addition when I I had to return because of a flight delay the staff turned a bad situation into s good by filling my available time with surfing lessons! Great hostel in Fortaleza that will make sure you have a good time all of the time!!


Good hostel at bad location.


Very clean hostel, comfortable beds and large washrooms. Internet is good too. Staff is okay, could be friendlier and give better directions. Generally a good place to stay in Fortaleza but the neighbourhood is not the best, try staying closer to Beira Mar!


Staff is among the best I have ever met in a hostel, really top notch. The breakfast is abundant and very good. There is a little garden , a terrace and a dining area which are the ideal place to have your breakfast, hangout, meet other poeple. The owner is equally nice and was very understanding to us. I definetely would go back there when i go back to Fortaleza


Friendly and helpful staff good atmosphere!


The hostel was super clean and well maintained. The owner and the staff went above and beyond expectations to make your accommodation in Fortaleza as comfortable as possible. They are very informing and resourceful for any daily or weekend trips to outer Fortaleza (especially Jericoacoara). Really enjoyed my stay at the hostel. Highly recommend to any future potential backpackers


There were no windows or shutters in my room, hence at night the room was full of Mosquitos. Some sort of siren was going off all night just outside the hostel meaning it was difficult to sleep. I thought the hostel itself wa great: large rooms, friendly staff and excellent enormous bathroom!


The hostel is just amazing! The rooms, bathrooms and all the other facilities are new and very clean. Really good value for money! The staff is very nice and helpfull, the owner himselfs takes care of most things and seems to work very detailed - surely makes a diference to other places! Will be back for sure!

Nice place and staff! Just the single room was a little bit hot during the afternoon, they can replace the ventilator for air conditioner.


lovely quiet hostel with ridiculously helpful staff, they really bent over backwards to help us. Nice rooms, very clean and good breakfast.


The staff was amazing. Extremely helpful and super nice. The facilities were very good - great big room and an amazing shower. Great breakfest and nesspreso coffee! The neighborhood wasn't the nicest but it was close to nice places and crew helped us to get taxies whenever we needed.
