The beats hostel is a good basic hostel in a good area, near the metro station and there is a big supermarket just couple of blocks away. It can be a party hostel or relaxed quiet hostel, it all depends what kind of people is staying in there at that moment. I experienced both styles. The girls at the reception are just lovely (and so beautiful)!
Good new hostel in the nice neighdbourhood near the beach. Good beds and good facilities. Cheap bar and the staff is awesome. This is the place to go if you need to relax. They also have stuff to rent like bikes and boards and snorkles.
Nice hostel near the busstation and close to the supermarket. The area is calm and safe. It is not so close to the historical center but it's not a too long walk. the hostel is close to the main road where you can catch a bus to near by waterfalls or to other beaches. It is very clean hostel and the facilities are good. The guys who run the hostel are awesome, had a such good time with them during the carneval.
