12th Sep 2013

I really can't fault Books hostel - the staff were very friendly, great atmosphere with happy hour in the bar every night and multiple activities on offer. It was nice and clean - cleaned daily by cleaning staff, and the breakfast was great... fresh chopped fruit, toast, cereal, tea and coffee and toasted ham and cheese sandwiches. Great location too - minutes walk from all of the nightlife in Lapa with easy bus connections to the beaches. Thanks to the staff for a great stay!
