Staff was very nice. It was all pretty clean, but the kitchen. Most of the showers had no hot water, and the kitchen is small and awful. Some of the double rooms were terrible, my single room was nice. Location is great, very safe, close to Farol and the beach, and also close enough to walk to Pelourinho. There are plenty of buses in the area.
The hostel is not ready for visitors. There's no kitchen, they just brought a gas stove to cook on(no sink). There's usually nobody at the hostel if you need sth, there's no cleaning (ever), the roof of the "kitchen" leaks every time it rains, so there's water on the table and on the floor all the time and in 4 days they never cleaned it up. Some windows have no glass on them. The bedrooms are ok, there's just no glass in the toilet window. Staff's nice, only one guy spoke some english
Staff is really nice and helpful. Place is cleaned everyday, and it has a nice patio in the back. Kitchen is allright, a little bit underequipped as most hostels. It's very quiet, so if that is what you look in a hostel, then is more than good for you. There's a bar there too with cheap drinks.
