Zicatela is located at a 5 minute walk from the main street in Pipa, which is perfect if you want to enjoy the nightlife but still have a good night's sleep. It is equally close to praia do amor. I spent the night in a private double room, which was nothing fancy but all you need: a clean bed, clean... More

Zicatela Beach Hostel in Pipa, was for me a superb hostel. All due to the personal attention that Erica and all the staff inputs in this magic place, just a few meters to the beautiful beach "Praia dos Amores". In the room you can actually sleep to the sound of the sea, and you have an incredible view of the... More

Really close to the Amor's beach, a walk distance from shops, grocery stores, restaurants and bars, very reasonable price, excellent breakfast, kind staff and it is a really easy place to make new friends.

The place is pretty average and a little bit run down. The room we had booked was for 3 people but this was the only one available at that time for a couple. The room was very spacious.
