It's a good hostel, nice staff - friendly, speak good English, keep the place in good order etc. Wifi weak but typical of all Brazil hostels. Good breakfast included. There are lockers for your stuff and others for your valuables, so really secure, and they'll look after your luggage on the checkout day. Close to beach, metro, bus routes, shops etc. Cheap tasty dinners. Disadvantages: Dorms get stuffy, bathrooms small and few, I don't like the 3-tier bunk system, few activities.

Awesome breakfast and they arrange all tours and transport for you. It's family-owned so they are shy about speaking English but are very friendly and helpful if you can stutter out a few Portuguese words. Communal bathrooms are clean, good wifi. I came during an empty period and they gave me a twin room :) when I only booked a dorm, very kind! And they supply towels! Nice chill area, pool table, close to centre of town but in quiet street close to police station. They lock up after 11 so secure

Very nice hostel - amazing breakfast, good wifi, hot showers. Only your , are still new and a bit hard... and bunk creaked every time I moved which must have irritated my room mates, maybe a bit of oil could help.

Avoid like the plague! About 20 km out of Galway and suitable perhaps only for long-term students, not backpackers.I was promised lift to place which never materialised, and very unfriendly and un-understanding reception when I eventually found the place. Ended up by cancelling and staying in very nice hostels in town.

A really nice place to stay, reasonably close to the beach, all facilities, internet bit expensive, cheaper at bus terminal. Staff really friendly, nice, animals a bonus. Clean, attractive rooms, kitchen depends on other backpackers whether clean or not. But definitely would stay there again!
