The hostel is Ok. However it was not worth the overpriced room fare during the carnaval. Beds are three level bunks which I found to be too crowded. Three of them in a relatively small room results in very little space for the nine people staying there. The plus side is that it's popular and as a single traveler it was very easy to meet people. The hostel offers dinner and caipirinias, at extra charge, most nights, which is a good way to meet new people and start your night before going out.
The owner is very friendly and helpful. Him and the very good breakfast he makes himself every morning aye two major reasons for choosing his very good hostel.
Hostel is well located with good staff and good kitchen facilities. Only problem is a bit of a mess in assigning beds. Every night there was a different person in our dorm who found he's bed had been double booked and had to go to the staff in the middle of the night to resolve the situation. Other then that the hostel itself is very nice and worth a visit.
