Claudinei was a really nice and helpful man! This pousada is family-oriented and a good place to relax and get a huge amazing breakfast before going on a hike. The hostel is very clean with a big common bathroom. Its a 5 mins walk to the small lencois center.
Adriana is a wonderful receptionist! Always happy and ready to go out of her way to help you!! Thank you for everything! I was traveling around in different hostels in Rio during 2 months and this was definitely my number 1 choice because of the good price, cleanliness,and good location with a wonderful view.
Woderful stay: friendly and helpful staff! You wont find better deals for 26 $Reais...Lovely birds singing in the morning, Clean, free towel in plastic bag. Lukewarm-hot showers (good for Brasil). 5 mins walk from metro, 10 mins from downtown by metro. There are also some very cool student bars at a 10 mins walk open on week-ends. Only major downisde is the absence of a working computer on site and the breakfast is pretty minimal (bread, cheese, little fruit and coffee).
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and very clean with warm blankets. Its worth to pay the extra euro compared to the cheapest hostels in Porto to be in a place that is properly heated ....and not to get sick! Highly higly recommended. Very organised and clean, without losing the fun vibe of small hostels.
