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, 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.

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.

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.

The Hostel dosen't have conditional air. In this case is a problem because the Natal city is hottest all time.

If you want to stay in Ponta Negra, this hotel is very well located, but nothing is happening in Ponta Negra. I would go directly to Pipa next time. Its not a party hostel. If you're looking for exchanging ideas, it's not the right place. There is no "push" from the staff to help the interaction and the comon spaces doesn't help it either. It was pretty clean and safe. The eletric shower wasn't working properly, but in Natal you don't really need a hot shower, unless if you get wet at home

The staff was really kind and helpfull, and the place is great! Not that close to the beach, but just a few steps from the reastaurants and shops. Recommend for sure!

The crew of the hostel was really nice and helpfull. The hostel is very sweet decorated and has the architecture style of Mykonos in Grece. White rounded walls with the blue windows and doors. Everything was extremely clean and the breakfast was just awesome. We really had a good sleep and a good time to chill aswell. Is well located to go by walking to the beach, shops, restaurants or buses going to other beaches. We really had fun in Natal. You have to try the Dunes tour !!! Really recommend!

I felt like at home! good breakfast , relaxed atmosphere. Its not a party hostel , but also good to meet people. Everything was clean all the time but as a suggestion to the owner they should put more robust toilet seats to avoid blockage with toilet paper.
