    I absolutely loved staying at this hostel. Really great vibe to meet people. Very clean, new and comfortable, and beautiful! Hot showers, lockers, big kitchen, rooftop, close to the beach, nightlife and supermarkets. Be prepared that Sal is not a cheap island, so even if you cook at the hostel you might spend more than expected. Super recommend this place! I was able to sleep very well and both hostel managers, João and Josefina were amazing, very kind and helpful!

    I travelled a lot in the past, and honestly had no particularly high expectations from this place. But the atmosphere was just amazing! I met great people and made good friendships! Medu, the hostel owner, is a lovely guys, he assisted us when we needed, always helpful and smiley. Great vibes overall, had the best time in Sal.

    Only stayed one night and the hostel was rather empty while I was there, but overall a very pleasant stay! About a 10 minute walk to the main streets of Santa Maria and the beach, a kitchen area to cook, and everything was pristine clean. The employees working there always had a smile to give. Highly recommend!

    Great hostel, friendly staff, easy going. All facilities really well maintained, only the stove couldn't be used because of safety reasons.

    Helpful staff, very clean (cleaned every day) and relatively cheap. Location can feel a bit unsettling after dark, especially for a female, but only a 5 minute walk from the beach.

    Overall really nice place to stay although something that did disappoint me is the kitchen is not useable. The cooker doesn’t work therefore you have to go out to eat for every meal you have. Also the only hot shower is the upstairs one so there can be a line but if you don’t mind taking a cold shower there is one in your room. I met some amazing people which made my experience and you are really close to the beach so the location is very good.
