Liked: As a solo female traveller, I wanted to stay somewhere with like-minded travellers and I couldn't have found a better place :) It was one of my favourite places to stay in Brazil! The hostel is in a quieter part of the Pelourinho, out of ear shot from all the samba clubs. It has 2 communal areas, a bar, 2 hammocks and 2 computers (plus free wifi). This place was ideal for me - I made friends that I then travelled with for another week before Carnival - perfect!

Disliked: Bigger lockers - they only fit wallets and passports in, not netbooks or tablets etc.

Liked: The hostel is really near to Pelourinho and the Staff is very friendly and helpful! They have a nice free breakfast.

Disliked: The proprierty doesn`t seem very new, some walls are a little dirt and the rooms without window smell like mold. The lockers are really small, just the wallet and the cell phone could fit it. They should handle some events during the night to put all the backpackers together.
