    The hostel is very well maintained, the reception and staff do a great job. They are very freindly and helpful people. I enjoyed so much that I extended my trip for 4 more days like other people from my dorm room. The hostel has such good vibes.

    Mito bom

    E MT bom se i stalar lá. Bons funcionários e lugar de boa socialização. Excelente custo benefício. Cozinha legal para uso. Só penso Que fosse melhor ela abrir antes das 11 hs. O quarto e espaçoso e tem um armário embaixo das beliches. Penso que se tivesse armário com chave em pé seria melhor. TB sugiro luz em cada cama. Porém e um lugar MT bom . Nota 10 a todos.

    Bem localizado

    A estrutura no geral fica um pouco abaixo de outros da rede que já fiquei. Bem localizado, a uma quadra da praia. Alguns quartos ficam em um predio simples de 3 andares do outro lado da rua.

    A limpeza, a localização e o atendimento são excelentes, a unica coisa q me incomodou foi a altura da beliche, fiquei em uma cama na parte superior que de tão alta nao dava nem pra sentar.
