Cheap, well located, good breakfast, young atmosphere, helpful welcoming and friendly staff!
I felt easy, and spent a very good time there, I regret I couldn't stay longer...
I recommend this hostel!!

I don't have a bad thing to say about this hostel. All of the staff and their community of local friends are very sociable. After a very short time there, I felt as though I'd been welcomed into a lovely family. The staff would often throw hostel dinners or BBQs. The poolside/ hammock-lounging atmosphere is as relaxed as it should be in a surf/beach town, but this doesn't stop the hostel from being an incredibly fun place to meet people and go for organised jaunts to surrounding areas like the sunset point on the beach in Maricaipe or to the old town of Olinda. We had some great days/nights out and I was sorry I couldn't stay longer. The hostel attracts a number of incredibly friendly and wonderful people and I would recommend it to anyone staying in the area. AND . . . the price is one of the cheapest I've found in the whole of Brazil. There you have it. Enjoy!!!

Good atmosphere and friendly staff. We were invited on Christmas for dinner which was really cool and there is a nice pool and the atmosphere is very relaxed with good music and a big chess board on the floor!

For the price, I expected a little better, but just a little. The location is great being right near the beach. The staff is helpful. We planned a trip to a local island for my girlfriends birthday through one of the staff members. The 6 person dorm should not be allowed with the size of the room. It was definitely pushing the number of bunk beds they could fit. The size combined with 1 oscillating fan made it very uncomfortable for sleep. They have organized food nights, which is pretty much a flat fee for all-you-can-eat. The kitchen(s), there are 2, are usually crowded and supermarket is not close by. We stocked up on 1 trip. The pool looked nice, but decided not to take a chance not knowing if it had chlorine or not. Overall, I say spend a couple more bucks and go elsewhere, but keep in mind the price is hard to beat.

LaRocca is the best! The staff is awesome, the location is awesome... perfect for budget travelers, you'll meet tons passing through from all over the world. They do big meals sometimes for everyone with a set price, and its pretty much an all-you-can-eat plus a drink or two, and there is also a complimentary breakfast every morning with coffee, tea, fresh fruits, cake, and bread and jam. I see some other reviews complaining about the cleanliness, which to be fair has some truth, but not bad enough to take away from the place. Someone comes in the morning and at night to clean the whole hostel (remember it IS a hostel and not a Holiday Inn or something). The water is a bit yellow and funky smelling, but I'm pretty sure its like that everywhere in Porto. They have both private rooms and dorm rooms, so if you're picky about cleanliness, privacy, and getting lots of sleep, then (obviously) don't get a dorm! Overall LaRocca is a great place and I would recommend it to almost anyone (except maybe my 90 year old grandmother) and will hopefully be returning some day.

This is the cheapest option in pg. Much better value then the always overpriced HI. The dorms are clean and comfy. There is a pool. Free wifi and communal kitchen. The private room is more of an apt and has its own kitchen and balcony. But its not newly furnished and the old piping leaves a constant nasty smell throughout the rooms. Bargain the price down or opt to spent around 90$R at somewhere that offers more comforts and cleanliness.

The breafast is meager, pay to eat at another pousada and get the pricr down at rocca.

Location is great and staff is super nice and helpful... And speak english
