Liked: Sunset Backpackers is a fantastic hostel! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They all speak fairly good English as well, which is hard to find in Brazil. The restaurant and bar is great and reasonably priced. The organize events for guests so it's easy to meet people. Plus the view is to die for!!

Disliked: We did have one minor issue while staying here but the staff were more than helpful and accommodating - they truly care about their guests. The community kitchen isn't well equipped, but there is enough basic utensils to cook simple meals.

Liked: The view was the only positive

Disliked: The staff were unorganised & unfriendly, the kitchen was unusable - unclean with bugs & dirty dishes, broken appliances & lack of utensils. Which encouraged us to eat at their restaurant. The place iself didn't have a hostel family feel or vibe.

Liked: Excelente localização perto da Praia Mole, da Lagoa e 3km da praia da Joaquina. Perto tem mercado, padaria, e bares.Fica no topo do morro, então prepare para subir e descer ladeira.O quarto Costa da Lagoa, para 4 pessoas, é excelente, com uma varanda e vista espetacular para Lagoa. O wi-fi funciona muito bem no quarto. O banheiro fica do lado de fora, mas estava sempre limpo.

Disliked: Os armarios e camas nos quartos são um pouco antigos, não é uma reclamação, só mesmo um comentario sobre.

Liked: Wi-fi is good and covers from top to bottom of steps ( a lot of steps as well!!) breakfast is okay.

Disliked: Directions were wrong! Latitude club doesn't exist and don't get off at bus stop number 2. Resulted in me having to catch 3 buses which were all wrong! Says party hostel? No one was there! I was only person in 12 bed dorm! Also kitchen is poorly equipped and tiny with a leaking fridge causing a small flood in there, it was like a builders yard during my stay, blokes laying out tools everywhere, bits of wood and cleaning the pool till late on! Found woman on reception to be pretty cold and flippant, sort of 'I'll tend to you in 5minutes' attitude and not the most helpful I have experienced in Brazil for sure.

Liked: Incredible sunsets and free drinks. Great burgers and breakfast. Fast wifi and really good coffee. It is a quick walk down to the beach.

Disliked: The pool is tiny and not clean. You could get an infection in there. It was so hot that i couldnt sleep because the fans don't blow on all the beds. There is no alcohol allowed from outside. They will search you at the front enterance and confiscate any alcohol you have if you don't know the rules. Kitchen is tiny. They tried to charge me more than my booking confirmation.

The property's response is

Hey Samuel, thanks for your feedback.
Unfortunatly when you were here, we were without a maintenece staff that is reponsable for cleanning the pool everyday( we also have a professional pool claner that comes twice a week). Now this problem issorted. The past 2 weeks in Brazil has been the hottest weeks in last 40 years, that made us buy new fans, in your room and another 4. .About your bill, you didnt tried to charge you more, as we showed you on yr ckout.
