Liked: The entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hostel was super clean and the showers were so high-tech! You can choose the exact temperature you want your shower to be. Every night, you are given the option to have dinner at the hostel which is always homemade and always AMAZING! My favorite staff member is Monique Kaminskaya because she always makes sure the guests have their absolute best times and go out around the town to see what the town has to offer in regards to nightlife. I had a super fun night singing karaoke at a local bar, drinking cheap capirinhas, and getting fresh pizza and bread from a local bakery in the wee hours of the morning. Another great aspect of the hostel is their homemade sangria which can consumed through a bong! Super fun times to be had at Casa d'Alagoa!

Disliked: Absolutely nothing!

Liked: This hostel had a great atmosphere with some great fellow Canadian workers. The rooms were clean, breakfast good and had variety and the location was very easy to find

Disliked: The only thing I didn't like about this hostel is that they offered a BBQ for €15 a person which I felt was a little too much especially when as a couple €30 is a lot for chicken and sangria when white wine isn't too pricey. We really wanted to participate and socialize but it was way out of our budget.

Liked: I really liked the staff. They were really friendly and took us to free pub crawl as well. They also made nice meals in the hostel and they had happy hour for beer. Reception was open 24/7 which is good. I really enjoyed my stay and the beds were super comfy.

Disliked: They had problems with hot water, but they gave free food and seemed really sorry about the fact..

Liked: absolutely amazing hostel! comfy beds, nice rooms and common areas, they thought about every little detail from power plugs next to your bed to reading lights. but more important than all of this is the atmosphere. you feel welcome from the second you walk in and simply don't want to leave anymore. supereasy to meet people and the most delicious dinners i've ever had in a hostel! Thanks huys, I had an amazing time here and definitely will be back. Special thanks to Claudia, the best receptionist in the world :-)

Liked: This is an amazing hostel! Rooms are clean and spacious and bathrooms are clean and modern. There are great indoor and outdoor entertaining areas, cheapskate drinks (they have their own beer tap!) and delicious food on offer every night.

Disliked: The additional services were quite expensive. It was 10 euro to hire a bike for the day and dinners were an average of 7 euro.

Liked: The friendly staff.

Disliked: Found a dead bedbug in my room. A lot of dust in corners and edges. The rooms and beds do not seem to be build by professionals. Loads of small crevices with dust and dirt. The atmosphere seemed nice but I don't know if it is really necessary to have people play guitar and try to sing till 1 AM.
