Very big hostel! didnt have the same party vibe as some of the others around la paz which was good! did have potential to get going though. dorms can be massive. stunk terribly in the morning but always was clean! bathrooms very clean! showers were on the cold side unless you went at the perfect time or when no one else was showering! spa was closed when i was there! good restaurant. Location is fairly good! just up the hill a few blocks from the main street and market.
The owners were lovely!!! Very talkative and helpful and french! :) Great location next to the markets and the beach! bit far from town but you dont need to go all the way in there! Breakfast was the usual toast jam etc. but you can pay for excellent french crepes! good beds. bathrooms were good! but since they are outside get muddy very easily! will definitely recommend for people to stay here!
Great hostel! The only thing that needs to be improved is the breakfast! i just had bread and crackers and coffee. it would have been nice to have a bit of fruit or yogurt. Staff and location is great! good views and bathrooms were great!
Great hostel! staff were excellent and the rooms were good! only downside of the hostel is the wireless and internet. computer was really slow and interent didnt work. the other time the computer was dead. but other than that it was a perfect experience!!
Great staff and cute little refugio! in the middle of nowhere near the base of the volcano! great for tranquility but bad if you actually want to spend time in puerto varas! Food was great! rooms were nice but our bathroom had not been cleaned when we got there. hair and used shampoo bottles were still in the shower. owner was great and very helpful!!
We had a good experience here! Though one staff member with crazy wild hair was very rude. Everytime I tried to speak to her she looked at me like I was an alien and was not helpful at all! Though all the other staff members were fantastic! Apart from the water not working and the toilets being disgusting it was relatively good!
This hostel was the best we stayed at in all of Brazil! The owners are fantastic and very attentive! Great views of the hostel and the rooms are sparkling clean thanks to the lovely lady that cleaned all day everyday! They were also new! which was great! the only downside of the rooms is the lockers are too small for a backpackers bag! Breakfast was the usual in brazil! but you got to eat it in hammocks or on tables with a great view of florianopolis and the sand dunes. Thanks!!!!
Camilla was fantastic! actually showed us around the hostel and answered our questions. isabelle the other little girl had a i dont care attitude showed us straight to our room and left. didnt even mention there was no breakfast or the fact we could use the bathroom upstairs. had no idea what was going on. But everything else was perfect! great atmosphere and cute looking hostel!
We had a private room. the air con was a waste of electricity. it only came on in the middle of the nigth when we didnt need it. asked the guy to change but didnt bother to help. It was hotter inside the room than outside which was ridiculous! beds were all stained and feral. room was so small couldnt fit anything in there. was out the back squished in a corner next to the toilets. very loud and banging all the time for the bottles in the bin.
Upset we only stayed one day here. The rooms were fantastic clean and spacious. staff were very helpful and hilarious! Only downside the suburb is a bit out the way of everything so you have to take a cab to get anywhere decent at night and during the day
Best accomodation in Rio! Luiz was great very helpful!! English was great! He even helped us buy a sim card because we couldnt speak portuguese! Breakfast was fantastic! Those smoothies were delicious! Wifi was great in the rooms. bathrooms clean and the rooms were also sparkling and cleaned daily! Perfect location! only a couple blocks from the city! We will definitely go back when we visit rio again!1 Thanks Luiz!
