Liked: Friendliness of the staff, the view from the room on the island. Location was near a beach and at the beginning of the trail to Lopes Mendes. To the little village you hadn to walk for about 1km over the beach, but this is a nice evening walk. The hostel has a cooperation with the Che Lagarto hostel. There is a nice BBQ.

Disliked: The quality of the shower and the bed. (Double room)

Liked: the location for the rooms was perfect, literally 3-4 metres from the sea and the hostel itself is just perfect location wise.our private room was lovely and a good size and cleaned daily.its about a 10 min walk to main town on beach which is fine and town itself is nice but very quiet during the week which is why this hostel is good and next door at che lagarto as it organises evenings of food and drink for a good price. the tues bbq is awesome!!!fully recommended!

Disliked: wifi quite variable and bit hit and miss but does work just slow.as ude expect on an island like this though.

Liked: It has a great location, only a 10 minute walk along the beach to the town. The views of the beaches are lovely. The staff were willing to help with any questions or queries we had. They organised a lot of trips and transfers at reasonable prices.

Disliked: It was disappointing on arrival as the hostel does not look like the pictures on the hostelbookers website - It was quite run down. The description of the rooms is different to how they actually are. The room was very damp and dated. It was not good value for money.

Liked: The views from the rooms were amazing! Aquario is just off the pier where the ferry drops you so you don't have to walk far with your rucksack. It is also right beside the Che Lagarto hostel so you get to meet the people from there easily. There is a nice breakfast and a cool terrace with hammocks.

Disliked: The room was a bit damp and the shower was cold.
