    Great hostel. Walking distance to Recife Antigo , or very cheap in uber. Really friendly staff. The BEST freshly made breakfast, with tapioca, omelette, fruit, bread, cake and cous cous. Would definitely recommend staying here

    Berto and his family are the best hosts ever! Berto prepared a home made breakfast "to order" every morning and even hosted me inside the hostel when I was no longer guest. He creates an atmosphere where everyone feels "at home" and tries to make as many social connections with his guest so that they feel like part of a community. I would definitely stay here again.

    Great hostel. The staff and volunteers are amazing and so friendly and helpful. You can walk to the old city from here, or take a cheap uber to Olinda. Breakfast is really nice, and even people with Celiac like me can find something to eat. The rooms have a/c, and they let you keep the remote at night so you can change the temp and not freeze. The hostel is super clean. The door is always locked and can be open only by a staff member which makes the place really safe. I loved my stay here.

    Comfortable hostel when there are few guests in the small dormitories. Good kitchen which was very clean as were all amenities. Excellent breakfast included. Staff member Luis speaks English. 15 minutes walk to downtown. Supermarket 10 minutes away. Lots of transport available nearby and a good, cheap restaurant.

    The hostel was allright for one nigtht but no more. It is small with only little facilities. The light in the bathroom didn't work, the beds were without mosquito nets and the breakfast starts late for travellers (8o clock). But what disturbed me most was that the male employee entered the girls' dorm bedroom without knocking. I've never seen that before in any other hostel.
