    Such a cool place to stay! Being right in the rainforest in a literal treehouse was so refreshing from the hustle and bustle of the center, especially if you’re coming from Salvador, it’s a nice tranquilo escape. It is definitely a bit of a walk from all the action, but nothing unmanageable (around 20 minutes at the most) and I believe 100% worth it to have to walk to that beautiful location!

    I had such an amazing stay! Universo Pol was beautiful -- spacious rooms, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, exceptional kitchen and common space, and delicious breakfast. The staff was wonderful and had great recommendations of what to explore. I am definitely coming back as soon as I can!

    Really nice location, amazing kitchen and dining area. Nice place to really chill out and get away from it all. The owners philosophy and way of life is really cool, so interesting to hear about the water treatment and the surrounding land. We arrived at night and had a bit of difficulty finding the place, probably best to plan to arrive in the daylight even though it is a very safe area :)

    PROs: Amazing hostel, worth going for a couple nights. Breakfast is the best I have had ever travelling (vegan, fresh, homemade). Area is perfect to relax. Tucked into the jungle area so away form all touristy things and very quiet. CON: some of the staff are closed off to guests and stay with themselves (+ a few are a little rude), making some feel uncomfortable. (Shoutout to staff Flor for being very helpful, very kind and being a very important presence in the hostel!) 100% WOULD RECOMMEND

    Unique experience, like entering a hippy commune. Staff are so kind and friendly and not preachy at all. No lockers. Breakfast was AMAZING. Bit of a trek from beach 1 etc but there is a nice beach a bit nearer.

    This hostel is kind of like a hippie commune in the jungle. There were more volunteers than guests, so I kind of felt like I was imposing on the lifestyle they share together there, and I didn't feel welcome. I enjoyed the live music, but there's no way to escape it if you're on the property, so if you need quiet time consider staying elsewhere. The location is only 15 min from town square and 30 min from the main beach but there are a lot of bugs and you may see snakes en route. Breakfast is A+

    Very Good

    Cool place to stay when visiting Morro de Sao Paulo. Staff are very friendly and warm people once you make the effort to interact with them. The place is a little hard to find but that is part of the fun. Breakfast was amazing! The daily jam sessions are cool. Because it's so hard to find your things are fine from a security point of view. If you want something different check it out
