Nice, clean hostel in a central location. Modern facilities, some rooms even have their own bathrooms, which makes life a lot easier than in many other places. Staff is nice, speaks several languages and provides useful information about things to do. Decent breakfast in the morning. Only thing I missed: The rooms do not have an air condition, just a fan, so it gets quite hot at night. Oh, and better take your bug spray, because the mosquitos are going to eat you when the windows are open...


I really enjoyed my stay at the hostel. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were very clean and well kept. There's a security guard at night, plus the rooms have lockers. They provide a good breakfast, even freshly scrambled eggs!


We stayed here for one night before leaving to Jeri and really enjoyed the place. It's totally new, very clean and has a nice relaxed atmosphere. Further more, we booked a twin private room and when we arrived we realized that they meant a twin with bunk bed... But the owner was SO understanding and realized that it's a misunderatanding, and gave us the double room . Thanks for a great night :)

Had a great week in the Refugio Hostel, the mattresses are large and comfortable, very good breakfast and the staff is always there to help you. All the rooms were clean, no problems with hot water and the kitchen is very well equipped. Big recommendation for anyone looking for a hostel in Fortaleza!

So impressed by this place we stayed there twice. The best hostel I've stayed at in terms of facilities and cleanliness. Very clean, tidy, spacious, great bathrooms, well stocked kitchen, helpful staff, different areas to hang out in. The only downside was the location. Some of the roads in the areas are dangerous at night so you need to get a taxi to and from. Still, I'd recommend it to anyone.


Refugio is excellently run- the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful, the rooms are extremely clean, and the overall facilities of the hostel are great.
