We arrived Lencois of 5 nights total, didn't book a place in advance. The staff here welcomed us very well. We planed on staying for 2 nights but stayed all 5 nights. We would like to specially note Fernanda! She was amazing and helped us with every little thing we needed. Bottom line- the value for money was perfect.

Nice staff, nice breakfast, super clean and a nice place to meet people from all over the world! Good Price!! Although it is near Rua das Pedras (Rock Street) where everything happens, you can really rest at night without to listening the night sounds.

Overall it's a nice place that offers an average service and provides tour guides to the near park of Chapada Diamantina. Positive sides: the breakfast is nice and the bathrooms big and clean.

This was probably the most expensive hostel we've stayed in (70 reais for a 8 mixed dorm). They literally charge money for everything. To take a shower after check-out costs 15 reais... Furthermore, I had to make a call to the airline and I wanted to use the phone. They charged me 9 reais for that. The shower was full...

We stayed for three nights in one of the eight-bunk rooms. Standard amenities, with backpack-size lockers available for each guest (bring your own lock, or buy one from them). Wi-fi only really works in common areas. I found the staff both helpful and professional. Breakfast was also ample, with a nice selection of fresh fruit and juices. A great experience...
