Liked: This is a gated, secure property with a nice bit a grass and bunny rabbits outside! Breakfast was the best we had in our two weeks in Brazil and there was free drinking water available. The rooms were clean and had large lockers under the bunks.

Disliked: They did not have good mosquito netting on the windows and we got eaten alive at night - there was no attempt to stop Mosquitos or flies getting into the property through many open windows including bedrooms.

Liked: On arrival I was very impressed. The court yard is lovely and the main reception desk is modern making the feel of the place a breath of fresh air. The staff are great and offer lots of information so they made up for the negative aspects of the stay.

Disliked: That breath of fresh air was soon disrupted by the nasty stench of the drains from the kitchen area! The bathrooms and toilets were also quite poor with the toilet seat broken and the shower only trickling out cold water. Make sure you take flip flops to shower with as well as it wasn't overly clean. I also didn't think much to the breakfast compared to over hostels in Brazil. The fruit didn't seem very fresh however the cake was lovely.

Liked: it was ok

Disliked: check out is at 10 and you actually have to be out of the place by then... no matter what time your flight or bus is... some hostels don't let you use the kitchen or the showers after checking out... fair enough, but... kicking you out at 10? not even being able to hang around a bit longer? I find that REALLY bad
