    Melhor experiência que tive, foi a primeira vez que estive em um hostel e foi excelente, divertido, ambiente sempre limpo e sem contar o café da manhã que era delicioso, me senti em casa e voltaria a hospedar-me novamente, super recomendo! “Eh nois” 🤙 By: Cadu.

    The owners are incredibly nice and helpful in terms of activities to do and what not! This hostel also has a great location and is less than 2 mins for the beach, as well as close to the city center. I’ve travelled a lot and this hostel may have the best facilities I’ve ever seen at a hostel. They also know English which makes staying here way easier for anyone who doesn’t know Portuguese or Spanish. I definitely recommend! 10/10

    We had an amazing stay at Massambaba hostel! Gabriella and Tadeo are very good hosts and we felt very welcome. They were good at helping us and suggesting the best activities to do around Arrial do Cabo! One of the highligts from our time at Massambaba was when Gabriella and Tadeo took us to the most beautiful sunset spot.The hostel is clean and with nice beds, good (and hot) showers, good wifi and cosy relaxing areas. We can definetly recommend Massambaba hostel to everyone!

    Tadeo and Gabriella are absolute angels. Massambaba hostel is right next to Plaja Grande, a gorgeous white sand crystal blue water beach- I even saw sea turtles near shore! There are also bars restaraunts and street food. The hostel is new, clean with great facilities. When I stayed I happened to be the only person in the hostel, so Tadeo and Gabriella explored the area with me! We went on a hike, had dinner and went to a cool local bar! 100% would recommend, you will have a great stay here!

    Very Good

    Was all good but bit of a weird atmosphere. Their downfall was that we felt the owners were rushing us and wanted us to be gone when we were leaving. They also make you pay for another night if you want a shower before you leave after checkout
