Liked: Staff are very friendly cheerful people. Wifi is fast. Small hostel humble hostel.Very casual and cozy atmosphere.Kitchen is open all the time, not locked up like other places.Like other's have said, inner security gate is opened by staff, but I like that, feels more secure.It's close to good value food, a shopping centre, only 5 blocks from (big bus station) Rodaviaria, can walk to most anywhere including the historical part of city. I will go back to stay at this hostel.

Disliked: If location is your thing, then you'll want to double check this on map. At night time can be intimidating. I guess that's how Brazil is though, best to keep safe and always move in groups.

Liked: it's a very homely hostel, the owners run the business out of their adjoining apartment and were very welcoming. The location is nice and close to the bus station

Disliked: There are only two toilet for the entire hostel which althought only small is still an inconvenience as they are both in the bathrooms. Also there is no street sign for the hostel so at night we ended up walking past it about 3times before realising it was in an apartment building.

Liked: Helpful staff.

Disliked: This shouldn't be marketed as a hostel, but rather a guest house. It's not in a hostel building, it's in the second floor of a converted apartment, so to leave and enter the facilities, the staff has to accompany you to unlock the door downstairs as well as the door to the apartment itself. The rooms are stuffy and almost impossible to sleep in when it's hot and the mattresses are awful.
