Liked: Great location in Barra De Lagoa. Right on the beach and easy access to beaches, restaurants and shops. Breakfast is pretty good and all you can eat (toast, ham, cheese, yoghurt, juice, tea coffee) and the staff are helpful and friendly. Free caprihiana every night is a nice perk

Disliked: They have a ridiculous rule that you can't hang your clothes in common areas so nothing ever dries when hanging in the rooms, which is quite a pain when trying to dry your towel after being at the beach. The kitchen facilities are pretty much non-existent it is a bit of a task to make a decent meal.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: The staff were incredibly rude. The place is full of cockroaches in every room... We had to move 3 times and then eventually move out of the hostel. We were refused a refund and were sworn and shouted at... The hostel is empty no one else was staying here and now I know why.... Disgusting customer service.... Stay here if you like your room full of cockroaches... There are better hostels in the area that are not full of vermin....we asked to speak to the owner and the manager refused to let us, I am now trying to get these details from hostelbookers.....

Liked: Very good location./Boa localização

Disliked: - Breakfast is not good. Some days they didn't have juice. - A guest had a discussion with a guy in the street, and he invaded the hostel, they were screaming and fight during the night. Lots of people were afraid. This hostel is not safe.(the guest wasn't expulsed and the violent man came back the other day)- They sold us tickets for a party, but at the time of it, they didn't have tickets. We had to solve it by ourselves. The transfer to the party was too expensive, and when we saw the bus, it was a normal one, very warm, and there wasn't seats avaiable for everybody.

Liked: The hostel has some good points such as the bar and the atmosphere there at nights, the rooftop pool with sweet views and chill out area. The staff try their hardest and were always helpful. the wifi was pretty good i guess for a big hostel.

Disliked: The hostel is as organized as a box full of lego, and really need to focus on their management - a big negative about this place, there seems to be too many chiefs and not enough indians. the kitchen is a pretty poor excuse, there is not even a pan, just a couple of pots. it was carnaval when we were there so somethings can be excused, but to be honest, the place was a huge mess by the time we left, and smelt really badly.
