According to the name the ocean view is quite nice. Paying 200 Reais (aprox.68 €/ 90USD) a night for a private room for 2 persons, I do expect a certain comfort. To be precise, a hot shower, a room which is not smelly. The private rooms are overpriced. You are not allowed to use the kitchen and to bring alcohlic drinks, you have to buy drinks at the bar. But you can get a very delicous diner everynight there for around 22 Reais ( aprox.7 €).
The location is perfect, right between Praia Mole and Lagoa da Conceição, and the view is truly amazing. It's a great place to relax, quiet at night, and because it's on top of the hill, it's always breezy. Bathrooms are inside the rooms, which is great, and always looked very clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Just be prepared for some exercise, because there's a LOT of going up and down the hill and the stairs. But definetely a great place to stay.
Take advantage of the dinners of the hostel - the food is great. Ask the cook for the maracuja mousse.
I would def recommend this place to anyone. The staff made it so lively, I was supposed to stay only 2 days and I stayed 6 instead.

Very relaxed place, with beautiful sea views. No breakfast is served outside the high season which is a pity.
