Nice hostel and situated in a good location. The area feels a bit dodgy, all the homes have high walls, electric fencing etc, so caution needs to be taken. Staff and owner are superb, took me to an awesome party in the city and ensured that I moved around the city safely. Hostel is really clean and well looked after, I was there in low season, so was a bit quite, but there is a nice bar area which m sure rocks in high season.


We stayed in a private triple which had big beds, air conditioning, and a private bathroom, and was super cheap. The common spaces in the hostel are beautiful; better than the pictures! And the staff was so great to us -- they helped us order takeout, gave us recommendations on what to do, and the owner of the hostel Anderson bought our gas off us when our rental car broke down and drove us to the airport when we couldn't find a taxi. Definitely recommend!

Great value for money. Simple room but very nice common area. Good breakfast also.


Great value for money, the rooms are small and the beds hard, but it's so cheap! It's in a good location near the beach and with lots of buses nearby, regular Brazilian breakfast, nice staff. Would stay here again.


Staff team very receptive and helpful. The Hostel is in a great zone of Natal. Definitely a great hostel!!

Nice hostel with lots of hammocks to relax in. Supermarket, shopping centre, beach and bars are all within walking distance and there are buses that run from the next street. Rooms can get quite warm at night as they only have a fan but would recommend this hostel.


Friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, laundry service, big plus that we could leave our big backpacks at the hostel, while our 4 days trip to São Miguel.


Nice hostel. Not too close to anything but not that far from the main shopping square. Rooms have no AC unless you are in a private and even there the AC doesn't really work. Staff is great and they help a lot. Showers are tricky and not that great. its a good hostel for the bucks but the rooms do get hot at night so prepare yourself before you come.


The staff from the day helped us alot, but the one frome the night gave us missinformation, leading us to miss a buggy trip. They promised an a/c but instead it was only a fan, when we complaint about it they lowered the total.

Great Location to go to the beach And bars. Staff is friendly and willing to help. The breakfast is excellent! There are lockers in the room, a bar and a furnished very clean kitchen to cook your meals. Wifi works only in the common areas.


Great and clean plaxe to stay. Great breakfast and helpfull staff. Enjoy Natal, it is a super nice place!


This hostel is extremely clean and comfortable. Great breakfast ! If you are looking for a comfortable, quiet and relaxing hostel then this is for you, unfortunately during my stay i found the atmosphere dull and a bit awkward.


Its not a party hostel. If you want to relax, its a good place

Staff should consider informing themselves better about the tour options in the city. They gave us some wrong indications about the buggy tour in the dunes and the quad tour that left us a little frustrated. Apart from that, good value for money.
