Liked: Staff both management, cleaning and night were all very friendly and helpful. The owners are passionate about moving this hostel forward, I felt really relaxed and looked after here. It's a perfect stepping stone for either exploring Fortaleza iPod before and after heading off to Jericocoaba. Breakfast was great, wifi worked throughout even in the courtyard garden area. Place is really clean. Ten minute walk to anything you'd need.

Disliked: My room was a little small, but not terrible.

Liked: Cheap, good for organising tours and transfers to Jeri (cheaper than catching the standard bus)

Disliked: HOT! Rooms are ok because they have aircon. Downstairs is stinking hot. Boring location. Difficult to get help from staff as they are so busy

Liked: Nice owner, clean, good facilities. When we arrived we got an upgrade from a dorm to a private room with no extra charge (though the dorms looked really nice as well). After we were robbed the staff was very, very helpful and comforting. They also made numerous calls for us to the police and they helped us getting al the information we needed. We feel sad that our stay was tainted by our bad experience outside the hostel.

Disliked: Some members of the staff didn't speak english, but he was using google translate very adequately.
