The thing that made this hostel such a terrible place wasn't the location (totally out of the way), the bed (more waves than the amazon river), the breakfast (bread and fruit) or the AC (no remote, I got sick in a 21c room). All these things are fine at this location and price. The problem with this place is the incompetent staff who have no control over the obnoxious party crowd. After a long trip back from the amazon, we waited for the shouting and screaming, loud music and cooking (!) to die down at 11, quiet time supposedly. After a visit to the reception, we thought we could now sleep, this is 11:30 pm. We were awaken at 2 am by drunken shouting and singing and moving of furniture to set up for their after party on the rooftop patio right above our private room. A visit to reception proved useless so after getting into a fight with the offenders, we finally got to sleep by 4:30 ish just to be awaken by staff at 5:45 am re-setting the tables on the roof top for breakfast. Guess what the partiers from the night before were doing? Sleeping soundly in the quiet dorms on the opposite side of the hostel. We were packed and out of there at 9 am and found a better place. Manaus is generally a crap hole but this was just plain torture.
