05 October 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The location between Praia Mole and Joaquina is enough for you to enjoy your stay here, but there is so much more. Backpackers sunset is enormous! It´s very easy to get lost here, but when they have parties, they party hard. Overall, staff are very helpful, and they taught me how to drink a mean chimarrão (Brazilian tea).
