    L’hôtel est superbement décoré et merveilleusement bien placé. Le petit déjeuner est très bon. Le rapport qualité/prix est très bon! En plus le propriétaire a beaucoup donné de son temps pour me conseiller les endroits aux alentours sans chercher à me vendre un énième tour. Merci

    Great little gem tucked away on a quiet street. I stayed for 2 nights in a 4 bed dorm and had it all to myself. Great kitchen for cooking and decent breakfast. The owners really went out their way to make my experience as enjoyable as possible.

    Great hostel! Very quiet which was nice to get some rest, clean, great staff, good breakfast. Smaller than some of the bigger "party hostels" but we preferred that. Highly recommend for a relaxed and clean place to stay. Also a great location close to everything and very secure

    Really nice hostel in a great location with excellent friendly staff and a really good breakfast. Unfortunately though we didn't get any sleep at all whilst we were there, there is a bar or club nearby that blasts out music till 5am, it is really really loud, this obviously is not the hostels fault but did spoil our stay a little

    The guy at reception is super nice and helpful. We've only stayed for one night so I can't comment much on facilities or breakfast...the room was very spacious (suite) and comfortable. There was some noise because it was next to reception and living room, but I sleep with earplugs anyways and it was enough. We had a problem with the toilet (the quality in Brazil is not the best) but the guy had fixed it by the time we came back to the room at night. Location is perfect and everything was clean.

    The location is perfect, in the middle of the historic center. Everything is walking distance. The street of the hostel itself is very quiet. The breakfast is also very good. My only problems were some of the facilities. In my room the bathroom would get all wet when someone took a shower. Also, the beds would move easily if someone was simply moving while sleeping. I also wish there was a small shelf to put my phone while charging at night, because I was always worried I would kick it out bed.

    Decent stay. I was missing at least one additional bathroom to avoid waiting most of the time. Not enough lockers for everyone in the room. Still felt save though. Rooms was quite loud with a window only to the common area. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Location is perfect right in the centre.
