Liked: Good place to meet other people, close to the beach and bus stop, things on offer to do during the day, swimming pool, nights out including transfer to and from nightclubs organised, and good meals put on at night - especially the BBQ!

Disliked: pretty far from the night life and any decent supermarkets, you could only use the kitchen before 6pm and after 9pm which was a bit annoying. fairly expensive hostel to stay at.

Liked: came here for a week and ended up staying for almost 3...this hostel is amazing for meeting people if you are travelling alone, the dorms are big and spacious, the bar is great fun and the staff make you feel like part of the family! its located in a perfect spot with amazing views of the lagao at sunset and its near enough to everything to enable you to explore the beaches and the nightlife close by. there is always something to do with staff organising trips around the island to evening meals and nights out :) thankyou for a brilliant stay sunset!

Liked: great hostel! originally booked 2 nights and ended up staying for over a week. located in a really great place close to the beach. the view overlooking the lake is amazing. such a tranquil and peaceful setting but always a party to be had at night! free caprinhas at 7.30. really friendly staff and house pet Zeca who are always up for a laugh and make you feel at home. activities and trips organised every day, all you can eat dinners every night, never made breakfast but heard it was worth getting up for! weather was awful which limited what we could do activity wise but the staff made sure to entertain us all and had a fantastic time!

Liked: ++GREAT place to meet people if youre traveling alone....the dorm i was in was big/spacy/clean, and had huge lockers right under the bed. employees were supernice, had a party atmosphere, but you could still rest. the view over the lake is amazing! they have a pool although it wasnt running when i was there bc of weather.--the hostel was a bit expensive for a basic dorm, but perhaps it was bc i came the week before carnival? the hostel is on a hill side, and some dorms are quite a ways down the hill from the main building. also, the hostel is bit of a walk from the lake or other beaches, and a bus ride from central lagoa. a bit of time is wasted in transportation. i had stayed at a hostel between ingleses and santinho beach the week before and the location there was better.

Liked: I was a little bit disappointed about this hostel. The room was very dirty. What i didnt like is that they tell you there is a kitchen to use for the people but this kitchen is only open untill six o clock in the evening. So if you want to go out you have to return at 5 oclock to make dinner. The view of the hostel is wonderful and its perfekt for people who want to go surfing. But it is a little bit outside of town so you always have to take the bus! We also booked a 8-female room, but had a mixed dorm with 10 people. I dont know if i go there again because i think it is to expensive for what they offer!
