Its hard to say a bad thing about Millhouse, a good location with good services. I found the atmosphere to be lively but it almost felt a little like a 18-30s holiday in ibiza, it was a massive hostel and lacked the warm sociable atmosphere of smaller hostels that i prefer. I made freinds with travellers that i was sharing a room with but i found the common bar area to a little less aproachable when i came to meeting others. Not my kind of hostel, but would suit many others !!
The moment i arrived at lemon spirit i was greeted by staff and guests and before i knew it i was heading out to Lapa with fellow travellers i had just met, the staff and the guests creat a very sociable atmosphere wich makes you feel welcomed and at home.The rooms where clean, had good security and set in a faily good location, i cant think of many bad things to say except that its very pricey hostel on weekends but I would happily stay again at lemon spirit and im thankfull for the good times!
I was very happy with my stay at ocara, when i arrived i found the hostel to be lacking in atmosphere, however this is no fault of the hostel or there staff, more the fact that it was not the peak season for amazon rainforest. The hostel was clean and the staff and owner were very friendly, there is more to manaus than just the rainforest however most people i met were staying for a one night stopover before exploring the amazon, Ocara over a great service and i would stay happily stay again !!
