Really liked this place, have stayed here twice. There are 2 bathrooms for only 3 double rooms so the shared bathroom is not a problem. Good breakfast. Anapaula is lovely, helpful.

The staff, especially Britney, were very friendly and helpful. If you are booking a private room don't bother going for Ensuite as the bathroom is not part of your room, you just get exclusive access to 1 of the 4 bathrooms. The pool is more of a paddling pool and the kitchen needed a good clean but overall I did like this hostel.

The owner, Rene, was very helpful in explaining the city and giving tips on where to go, so much so we stayed an extra night. Breakfast was fantastic. No complaints with the room.

I really liked this hostel - free use of the washing machine, free wine in the evening, good breakfast, roof terrace and an excellent BBQ on offer several nights of the week.

A pretty good hostel. Great communal area. My only complaint is that they have listed a book exchange but you are not allowed to exchange a book... They are numbered and kept under lock and key.

We had booked a private room. When we arrived we were given a dorm room but assured that nobody else was staying in there so it was effectively a private room. Later that night another guest arrives in the dorm. The man on reception found this funny and was laughing with another member of staff. He also seemed to think he was doing us a favour by only charging us the dorm rate. Overall, I would not recommended.

The staff are happy to help and the hostel offers a good range of trips. However, we booked our tansfer to Ilha Grande with them and the company, Easy Transfer, was a shambles. Disorganised, delayed and they crammed far too many people on to the boat. The breakfast was good and available until 3pm. The hostel itself is just looking a bit tired.

Good place to stay. There was a cat and really cute kittens roaming about. Breakfast was bread, cheese and eggs. The poor weather stopped us using the outside but it looked cool. Airport pickup was handy.

The entrance to this hotel is via a rickety lift, there are no stairs which was a little unnerving. The staff were friendly, one particularly friendly lady gave us cake. We also had an airport pick-up, no problems there. The room was ok for the money but the bathroom old and scruffy and there was no window behind the curtains! Breakfast was good. We went on a day trip to the desert castles organised by the hotel which was an enjoyable day and good value for money.

Quite bizarre but mostly in a good way. Its suits its name, it has a watery feel about it that is hard to describe... or maybe that was just the weather while we were there. The staff are super friendly and provide you with ginger tea whenever they see you. I would recommend it for value for money.
