Good place, good people, very clean, swimming pool and free caipirinhas
The location and the breakfast are amazing, great atmosphere!
Hard to change in an old house, but there could always be more toilets and showers!
Caipirinhas for free for one hour, great people and good location.
The A/C was extremely cold at night and I got sick (outside it wasn’t even that hot). I asked to lower it but they said they wouldn’t because the rest would complain. I think it was a bad decision because it’s not healthy to have the A/C so cold at night.
Excellent breakfast! Big, clean room (double)
I stayed in the overflow building ‘the dog house’ around the corner so wasn’t actually in the main hostel building, this was ok as Sao João celebrations were going on and was quiter there but you should be made aware you’re going to be in a different building, the pool no longer being so conveniently accessed.....as it happened it rained a lot while I was there so didn’t use it but then the chill out area was also in the main hostel so I ended up just staying in the bedroom. Room was clean, spacious, solid beds. The buffet breakfast is incredible, best I’ve had in any hostel. The British owner Paulo also owns bar Zulu oposite the doghouse on the corner which serves decent grub. He was helpful and put me on to a guy in Lençóis for Chapada treks and accommodation.
The aircon was on in the room between certain hours but it didn’t work....the last night I was there the room was full and it was an absolute sweatbox. As mentioned above about being made aware of overflow building
