Localização perfeita, bem ao lado da praia e da lagoa. Staff muito amigável , melhor vista impossível. Festas bem divertidas no bar do hostel . Perfeito para surfistas , é possível ver as ondas e a condição do mar dos quartos.

Excellent place! Location is great, 5 minutes from the praia mole, 10 minutes from a main street with restaurants and shops (it is on top of a hill) like its name, great view of the beach. Nice rooms, very clean. Excellent atmosphere. Nice and helpfull staff. Bar working at night. Full breakfast in the morning. Wifi connenection has problems in few areas in the hostel, I personally didn't get connection inside my room, which can be a problem for some people, in 2017... :)

Location: Not good in the sense that it's on a very main road with no footpaths. Cleanliness: Although the bed sheets were clean, regarding the bathroom & general cleanliness of the whole hostel I would give it 2* out of 5*. Atmosphere: Absolutely dead. It is low season but there was NOTHING doing on. No music. Never anyone around to even buy a drink at the bar. Nothing. Do not visit in low season. Thankfully the wifi is good so we ended up binge watching Netflix.

Thank you for your feedback! Please notice that footpaths are a city problem and not a hostel problem. All hostels really near the beach on the east side of the island (which is the nicest one) suffer with no good sidewalks (mole, joaquina, campeche and part of barra da lagoa). If you stay at the city part you'll have stores and sidewalks but no beach! Just to park a car in mole beach will cost from 10 to 15 reais. In september someone can spend the night at the hostel, with breakfast, 5 minutes from the beach for 35 reais (10,5 dólars). It looks like a fair deal to us. Surely the hostel (and the city as a whole) lacks atmosphere during low season. It is a summer place. But we apologize for the inconvenience. We always strive to provide our guests with the best service possible. Thanks again!
