    All well. Good location to metro n beach, grocery closish, bar in the hotel, money exchange on reception with nice rate. No lock - just locker. Annoying online check-in that didn't work at the end. In case of crowds i understand, but when I'm there alone, i will rather watch somebody to fill in my details than do it. Now getting Portuguese email spam recommendations - not for me.

    Excellent location. Very friendly, great if you want to meet lots of people. They organise lots of events. The room was pretty cramped without much storage space. Unfortunately no laundry services.

    Amazing, friendly and positive atmosphere.. everyone here was ready to party, get to know each other and have a great time. My new friend Paul (the bartender) is a special person that made this trip all that much better! Overall the staff were nice and helpful and the location is great. Will stay here again in the future.

    Perfect location and friendly staff but this place have a lot of cons. The rooftop with kitchen closes at 22:00 (even before!) and then you can sit in the bar but they closes at 00:00 or even 23:00. For me it was important to have a place to relax in every hour. Also, 1 bathroom in the room and no more in the floor.

    It was a nice and safe place. The location is great and the cleanliness is good. However, the value is not too good unless you are just focused on location. The rooftop kitchen opens late in the morning so if you want to eat breakfast early you hace to buy their breakfast which is overpriced for what they offer (tiny breakfast even the most complete option). The general area to relax is small. The staff is not rude but there are not there to make your experience better, just to do their job.

    You should stay here for one reason: location. It is far superior to any other hostel as a 5 minute walk from the beach. But, it has some problems. To start the dorms have one tiny bathroom for 12 people and it has no ventilation. The best part of the hostel is a great rooftop, but they close it at 9pm. The majority of guests are Portuguese-speaking, so it can be tough for English-speakers to meet people. The staff are not mean but also aren’t going out of their way to be friendly or helpful. I’d stay here

    Good location, very close to the beach. Bunk beds are triple bunk beds. 1 shower/ toilet for 9 people. If you can't speak fluent Portuguese don't stay here.

    Staff seem like they couldn’t care less about working there. The WhatsApp group with activities is nice, but most of the communication is in Portuguese. If you don’t speak Portuguese I wouldn’t recommend going. They checked me into an 8x dorm, then after hours I would’ve had to move into a 12x dorm. I didn’t stay. Mattresses of really poor quality. My bed sheets were stained with blood. If you’re in the bottom bunk bed you can’t sit on the bed because the top one is close. I wouldn’t go again.
