  • Wouldn't saty there again, very far from the city, cold water almost all the time, first night didn~t sleeped because of the mosquitos and we stayed without air conditioning. The local guide that they indicated was too expensive and didn't do everthing he was paid for. Tha staff was nice. Poor breakfeast

  • Adorei o albergue! O único problema é a distância dos pontos turísticos e das praias mais famosas, mas tem onibus e vans passando bem próximo. Fiquei hospedado nele durante o primeiro fim de semana do rock in rio e recomendo! I loved the hostel! The only problem is the distance to touristic points and famous beaches, but there are buses and vans passing near the hostel. I stayed there during the first weekend of Rock in Rio and I recomend it!
