I really liked this hostel, the staff were great and the location brilliant. Their plumbing system had a few problems (under no circumstances flush paper down the toilets, the whole lot gets blocked!) and the kitchen could do with a few more utensils but apart from that, clean, secure and good for a couple of more quiet nights after partying hard!
Loved staying at this hostel. Everyone was friendly and helpful, the breakfast fantastic and location brilliant. The terrace bar was great to hang out in. Also meant that the rooms on the 1st floor weren't subject to as much late night noise as there could have been. Recommend to everyone!
If cleanliness, security and comfort are important to you I wouldn't suggest staying here. The kitchen and bathrooms were filthy the whole time i was there, ceilings leaking from rain all over place. Dorm rooms don't have locks and as staff seem to forget to give out wrist bands at check in, anybody from the public bar can gain access when busy.very noisy until 2am. Not quite worst hostel but not far off....
I loved my stay in this hostel. The rooms and common areas were all really clean and small touches with the decour made it feel a little bit more like a home. Everybody is incredibly friendly, helpful and patient if you aren't fluent in Portuguese,I cannot recommend this hostel enough!
