  • I loved the breakfast until 12h. Location is good because it's in the main historical district but still on a quiet street, so you can actually sleep. Rooms are quiet and dark enough to sleep well, without feeling closed and stuffy. I actually left, though, because the air conditioning in the room was SO loud. Apparently it was repaired the next day so I guess that is no longer an issue. The AC was my only real complaint. A guest kitchen would be nice too, but overall it's a very good hostel.

  • This was my first time staying in a hostel, and based on past experiences of friends in other places, I was prepared for the worst. Luckily, none of my prepping was needed because Hostel Galeria 13 was so great! Just the right amount of hospitality, generosity and comfort. I found Paulo, the owner, to be extremely helpful and made us feel at "home" despite sharing the space with many others, as well as we felt safe. No complaints, just right! Definitely recommended.

  • This hostel stays in a very good place. Caipirinha hour is an excellent way to introduce guests to each other.
