Maybe this hostel was great in the past, but today there are quite a few things that could be improved. Some staff are unproffesional. Some staff very nice. There were lots of rules in hostel like not permitting outsiders into the hostel...the staff had no control of this rule, so i think security was poor. Wifi was slow Dinner was great
Really cool hostel with set activities for both day and night time. Staff very friendly and helpful breakfast was basic but lots of choice and good, dinner was amazing and great value for money
Lovely place, great location. The food is amazing and really reasonable and all the tours we did were a really fun day out.
Main problem was bathroom, not clean, and not enough. Female shower not even had a courtain, and no locks on the door. Good breakfast, staff friendly, beds ok, aircon.
What a great place to stay. Located in a nice quiet part of town and close to amenities. The staff are awesome. The facilities are clean. Food was great. Met alot of good people there. I had a great time there....
Really nice place, clean, friendly and lot of places to chill and relax. Great bar and best diner ever! Great for meeting new people and party. They organise daytrips as well.
A good hostel with a good atmosphere and very nice
LOVED this hostel, the people and all of the staff here. Location is perfect and easy to get everywhere by public transport although the hostel runs trips daily which makes everything easy for you at reasonable prices. The dinners nightly are really really good especially for the price. Staff all speak english and are friendly and helpful with everything you may need to ask. Was really sad to leave Tucano, ended up extending my stay from 3 to 8 days and easily could have stayed longer.
Since I am not a young party girl, I missed the calm athmosphere of other hostels. The cleanliness as well was not perfect. All the rest was very nice. Decorations and vacation feeling in the whole house, very friendly and helpful staff (from the reception to the kitchen) and delicious dinners every evening. Stay there if you are young, want to be on beaches in the day, eat good food and party at night!
A nice hostel about 10 minutes walk to the shops / buses. Everything you need is there, though their reservation management could be better, myself and another traveller on a different day were told we had confirmed extra nights only to have them bumped. Organised trips out are pretty damn good.
Probably best hostel I've ever stayed in. Staff is tremendously friendly, organizes various trips per day and they serve a cheap delicious meal! Food was better than we got in many Brazilian restaurants. It is comfortable that your orders at the bar will be put on your bill. However, I have to warn you: due to the fun you will have here, you will order more (beers) than you planned. So keep some cash for paying the bill when checking out!
This place makes everything so easy- everything is straightforward, just write down your name if your in! Food is a bonus with a decent chef making meals at affordable prices.
I stayed for three nights at Tucano's with a friend of mine and I loved it! I met a lot of cool people from all over the world there and I made a lot of new friends too! The staff is very nice and helpfull and the cook is amazing! Don't even bother to go out for diner just eat at Tucano's The nightlife in Lagoa da conceicao is very colorful and I enjoyed it too!
this hostel is excellent. The staff is very funny and responsible. Every day there are trips organized by staff to guests, show the island and take to a parties. I liked the locations, on a residencial street, but near a commercial center and the Lagoa da Conceição. Its not far to go to great beach, like "Mole" and "Joaquina" . Restroons and Bathroons are good and always they're being cleaned. thank you Lila, Leo, Marco, Caio and all Tucanos's Staff.

The only thing that i didnt like is that you can not party inside de hostel after 11 am
This hostel has a very nice atmosphere and great for meeting other backpackers. The dinner and breakfast are very nice. They organize tours every day to different beaches and you can sign up for going out at night. There is a large garden with a small pool which is great for hanging out and meet other guests. I had a great time and met many people here. I would definitely go back next time I'm here.
Really liked my stay at Tucano House. The Staff was so nice, they really had fun at it and dind't seemed to be "work" for them. The best are the dinners in the evening. Cheap, delicious and for me as a alone-traveller perfect oportunity to get it contact with the people right from the start. The only thing which is kind of annoying is that the Bar has to close at 11 pm because of the neighbors (so actually the Hostel isnt to blame for), so at this time you start to go to nightclubs
