    Great hostel! I arrived on an early bus from Salvador and 24-hour reception was there for me to enter, drop my stuff, and sleep on the bed in the lounge area. Lots of great tours, cool staff, good location, and good breakfast (pay separately, not included in stay). Highly recommend!

    Excellent place! The owners and the staff are absolutely fantastic! They also organise the tours and the trekking in Chapada da Diamantina which makes everything easier when you don’t have the time to search or research about it. The owners and the staff speak English and are very helpful. They provide us with good tips about the place.

    We had a great stay at Albergue de Lençóis. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful and we loved the one day trek. The room we were in was a really good size, comfy beds and the breakfast was amazing!! :)

    The hostel itself was nice, but quiet while we were there. We arrived in Lençois in the morning, but could already check into the room and have a little sleep. The owner gave us some information about the tours they offer. We did the Pati Valley trek (3 days) and it was super nice! The food was incredibly good, the gide knew a lot about the area and the overall organisation was good. I would definitely recommend booking a tour here (they’re one of the cheapest also), despite not staying her

    Very Good

    It's dirt cheap because they want to lure you in so that they can sell you treks. I also got some laundry done which came back wet, and visibly dirty and smelly. The guy on reception said "Yes it does not smell good... but it does not smell bad." For context, the laundry cost more than the dorm... Overall, disappointing, look elsewhere.

    The location of the hostel is great and so was my communication with the staff prior to our trip. Very kind and helpful, especially Tomas. Moreover we liked the joint eating space with a great view on Chapada. What we did not like so much though was the prevailing smell of Naftalina in our room. Moreover, the window lock facing the common spaces was broken, so we did not feel so safe leaving our stuff there.

    If you are not doing a tour with the hostel, the owner won't even talk to you ⚠️Be careful with one of the volunteers (old argentinian), we were supposed, 3 of us, to hitchhike together after sunset back to the hostel, he left us when he got into a car in the middle of a parking lot. Thank God the other guy has a heart & a soul. Kitchen is okay Cleanliness can be improved

    There was a problem with the water and only one bathroom was working the entire facility. It was hard to tell who worked there, I got no tour and a scoff when I asked where drinking water was. The owner was nice and helpful but the rest of the staff was not great. They ran out of towels and pillow covers. A staff member told us we would be switching rooms, w/o us asking, and the owner told us normally we would be charged for it (we didn't end up getting charged). Seemed unorganized.
