Liked: The location is very good. Near to the beach, little supermarket just in front of the hostel. And the rooms are nice, with two floors.

Disliked: The staff was not really friendly! And the breakfast is really chaotic.. There are to little places so you have to wait for your seat.

Liked: Хороший завтрак, кондиционер в номере. Близко к малолюдным пляжам.

Disliked: Чтобы добраться до хостела необходимо перебираться через ручей глубиной по колено. Для меня это не проблема, а вот женскому полу да еще с поклажей это будет сделать не легко ( я видел как постояльцы использовали водное такси для доставки багажа в хостел).

Liked: Not much. Clean bathroom, good location. No idea why it has recieved good reviews. Seems like it was once the owners baby, but no longer wants it.

Disliked: Riddled with bed bugs (same opinion as other we spoke to), Cramped common room (supposed; family and extended families living room), smells of dog, flies eating my breakfast, poor decor, poor kitchen facilities, no air con.

Liked: Location close to the main restaurants was nice. Excellent breakfast, various fruits, cakes, bread, milk etc. Much choice!

Disliked: Absolutely way overpriced. At the time, there was no electricity (meaning: no light, no wifi, no internet, no hot water) while we had to pay 100 Reais (!!) during Semana Santa. No staff around on different times of the day, no help/suggestions on what to do. Big dorm is connected to the living room with stairs so you won't sleep early when people play guitar or are just having a conversation. My dorm was further away and had a shower en suite. Nice room, but rediculously overpriced.

Liked: Could check in very early. Good breakfast. Friendly staff.

Disliked: No toilet paper in both toilets. Matress was very bad. Got a swollen eyelid as allergic reaction after sleeping on that foam pillow (no real pillow case and dodgy blanket) that only happens on high concentration of mould or funghi spores (and didn't happen in years).

Liked: Fridge and sink and separate entrance in our dorm, felt a bit like we had an apartment... but still has all the perks of a normal hostel. Got told off after completely taking the piss once, but they definitely aren't uptight at all. Loved my stay

Disliked: nothing at all

Liked: A serious spread - best breakfast I've ever had in +150 hostels. Excellent location. Mosquito nets & strong fans. Attentive helpful staff.

Disliked: The 10 bed dorm is a little cramped & the spiral staircase is difficult to manouver you bag up/down. There's also no door so you can hear all the noise from downstairs in the morning

Beach / sunbathing

Liked: Much space.

Disliked: The hostel feels kind of dark and sad, and you don't really get the feeling to stay near the beach. I would prefer one with sea view, or at least a terrace or something. Lots of mosquitos, especially in the dorm. I think there were more mosquitos inside the hostel than anywhere else on the island.
