All you could want from a hostel in this area; great parties between Sunday - Thursday (the parties on Friday and Saturday night are in town) partly since its the only place to go out between those days and partly because the setting is so amazing. Staff are extremely chilled, they allow you to drink your own drink in their...

We have just left the hostel and overall it was the best place we have stayed in in Brasil. Debbie and Big Mama and the rest of the staff were absolutely superb, catering to our every need and making the experience truly memorable, while the room was clean and the public areas comfy. The reviews that complain about noise are...

Receptionist was incredibly helpful. Parties during the beginning of week were good fun. BBQs were excellent and very good value as the quality of meat was high. Rooms were clean. View of the bay is spectacular. The owner is a good bloke. Overall good hostel.

The location is the best in the island. The staff were very friendly. My friend and I stayed in a private room that was really lovely and had a really good view. They help you with anything you may need, there are parties all the time and it has such a relaxed atmosphere that you really don´t want to leave.

I stayed here for 5 nights & it was lovely. The staff were all really helpful, the breakfasts were lovely & the views from our room absolutely spectacular. The room was basic and very clean. I partied a couple of nights & didn't find the noise an issue at all on the nights that I didn't party. I would definitely...

Great place to stay! Very beautiful view, friendly staff, and fairly clean. No wifi in the rooms, only in the lobby so that kind of sucked. Parties are Sunday though Thursday and I was there on Friday/Saturday hoping the weekend would have some good times. It's a good little walk into town, but it's on the beach so.... Overall, I...
