VERY BAD EXPERIENCE! 1) the owner was under the influence of alcohol when we checked in! 2) Staff and guests very loud, late into the night. 3) Rooms so hot, impossible to sleep. 4) Bathrooms REALLY dirty, where people had been ill, plus blocked toilets, broken toilet doors and blocked sinks...disgusting!! 5) Breakfast was poor, not enough supply for all people staying. Worst place we stayed, in our 7 week trip around Brazil. we couldn't wait to check out.
Great location. Breakfast was good, and constantly replenished. Not many people staying, so no atmosphere sadly, even though it was right before Carnaval!
Loved this hostel!! The beds are amazing..so comfy. Fantastic lockers underneath that hold HUGE bags!! Lovely dorm with lots of space, great kitchen, pool onsite - though didn't go in it! Good breakfast, constantly being replenished. Wi-fi ok in dorm, but better in communal areas. Would definitely stay here again.
This was an ok hostel. The owner has had it about 12 months, and just needs to sort out other staff, as he's trying to do everything himself, and it just can't work! It's in a great location, once we found it. Be sure to email for exact instructions re exiting the bus!
Breakfast at this hostel was brilliant!!! Wi-fi was free, but there was a charge to use onsite computers, which was a bit annoying!
This hostel is beautiful, and the people that run it (Paulo and Sumara) are lovely and really helpful. Special thanks to Daniel for all his help...he went above and beyond what would be expected of a hostel member of staff. We would have had real difficulties without his help! There are great laundry facilities, the only down side of the hostel, is no use of the kitchen. The owners live onsite, so the kitchen is for their use only. There is a travellers fridge. We would stay here again.
We LOVED this hostel in such a beautiful old town. It's location is fantastic, an easy walk to everything. The staff are great...really friendly and helpful. Thanks to Jorge and a special thanks to Angela for all the help. Breakfast was great...very typical Brazilian fare...all fresh and delicious every day. Great huge locker drawers, under bunk beds. Laundry facilities, which were a real bonus for us. We hated to leave, and we would definitely stay here again.
