This family-run hostel has nice installations (mattresses too thin, though) and staff (specially, Maria José - she prepares great breakfast). Only they're too strict with their policies. For ex., after check-out at 12 pm, you cannot use the bathroom, so, even though you're meters away from the beach, you cannot get a shower afterwards, not even on the yard. When I try to suggest a change in policy, I was called rispid to other guests who weren't even listening before. Not professional at all.
This hostel was a perfect place to relax and enjoy João Pessoa. The owner is as helpful as adorable, the breakfast was delicious, the atmosphere was cozy and its location very close to the beach makes it an even more comfortable stay.
