“Great staff, good area, cold room”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

We stayed here only one night. The hostel is located in a nice and safe neighborhood, about 25 minutes walking distance from historic center. There is someone at the front desk for 24 hours and they had no problem with us dropping off luggage at 6 in the morning. We were also able to leave luggage there after checkout and come back for it in the evening. The staff were the best thing about this hostel. Everyone was very helpful, gave us maps and and answered all of our questions. They even gave us directions to the next hostel that we were going to (we were only able to stay at Motter Home for 1 night because they didn’t have any more free rooms.)

The room was clean, but quite cold. The windows did not close completely and since it was quite cool in Curitiba at the time (10 degrees) we had to sleep in our sweaters. This will definitely not be a problem in the Summer. The breakfast was quite basic. There is a fridge in the kitchen where you can keep your stuff. The shower was great - it even had instructions how to use it, which can be quite tricky in Brazil.

Overall, fantastic staff and a good hostel – we would recommend it for anyone visiting Curitiba when it’s warm. Definitely good value for money.

Firstly, thanks for the evaluation! We are happy you enjoyed everything and we take into consideration the issue of temperature in the room. The windows close completely, we apologize if you had difficulties, the reception is always available for help in cases like this. We also provide extra blankets on cold nights.On very cold days, the room really can present lower temperature. This year winter was intense and we can see how works the thermal dynamics of the room. We are already checking options so we can keep the room warm on colder days. We expect you in a next opportunity to verify these changes. Thank you very much for choosing us (:

This place seems to be in a very nice neighbourhood and is quite a walk from town but this makes it feel very safe and quieter than downtown. There is the cheap city bus 10 mins walk away with easy access to the city anyway.

The staff could not be more welcoming and helpful. We'd had lost our phone before our stay and the staff made calls all day to try and relocate it.

The rooms were very spacious, personal locker and clean throughout. Kitchen was well stocked with equipment and some shared basics (salt, oil etc). Breakfast was plentiful even if we grabbed ours early to get the Morrettes train (recommended).

Would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a great value hostel.

It can't be said that Curitiba is high on the tourist circuit, although it should be: it's a fantastic, vibrant city and a Brasilian success story in terms of great urban planning, apparently. Motter Home is one of the best hostels we've stayed at on our travels. I think it starts with the fact that you enter Motter through the giant lounge, which also contains the reception desk, so you immediately feel like you've entered a home, and that feeling was maintained throughout our stay. We were truly sad to leave. The facilities are excellent: lovely hot showers and cozy dorms, plentiful, yummy breakfast and super kitchen available to use, plenty of communal spaces that engender sitting around and chatting to fellow guests, and a great renovation job done on the whole house. The staff were excellent, a super friendly and young funky bunch, full of helpful information and suggestions for things to do, and happy to just have a chat. Just can't say enough nice things about our stay, and we'd love to come back one day.

The hosdterl is very clean and spacious. The 8 bed dorm we stayed in was very large and we had a balcony. 20 mins walk into the centre and a very safe area to stay in. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Wish we were able to stay for longer!

I stayed at this hostel for almost 2 weeks while I was looking for an apartment in Curitiba. The staff was very friendly and certainly willing to help us with anything we needed. Also, the hostel is kept very clean and they have everything you need for your stay. I would recommend this hostel for its great location, staff, and fair pricing.

Actually, Bolo Rei means King of The Cakes in Portuguese. I chose this name for the review because there always seemed to be someone making a cake, at somepoint, somewhere, somehow. These cakes would invariably get eaten the next day.

This hostel is clean, sunny, gets lots of sun and is staffed by a young and friendly crew of professionals that take their jobs seriously.

Rafael, Malu, Amanda (no longer there, unfortunately) Isabel, Ana, Giovanni, Claudia, Aline, Renato and more (I hope I did not leave anyone out!).....thanks so much for putting up with me for so long.

What made staying here even more interesting was Karl, the Canadian who travelled with his blender, and slept in his hoodie. There are all sorts of interesting characters moving through Motter Home.

Room Tip: I prefer lots of light and for this this hostel was good for me. But I think I am the minority. Mo...
