5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2010

It´s a great place!

Interesting architecture combining concrete with a lot of wood. Nicely painted. Swimmingpool surrounded by palms and flowers. Pool table.

Small open kitchen, covered by a roof, right next to the swimming pool. Equipment rather basic, but sufficient. Nice breakfast is included, but nothing extraordinary.

Located in the town center, ca. 15 min. walk to the beach like from most other hostals here since the town in situated on top of a cliff.
The beach is great, particularly Praia Pitanga which is a ca. 20 min. walk along the beach (to the right when to come down). The cliff is right at the beach and the sandstones are colourful and you can walk into various smaller valleys. Great beach walk!
In Spring it´s a rather quiet town with mainly Brazilian tourists, apparently in can get crowded in high season (ca. Dec. to Feb.) and should be party then as well.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2009

A very cosy youth hostel in indian-greec-brazilian style. The best hostel I ever visited. With swimming-pool and rest area under coconut trees, kitchen for guests, lovely personal, internet-access, professional guidance, tipps, clean. I recommend this hostel as the best in Brazil!
