This is the cheapest place in Fortaleza, and they charged me the amount advertised on hostelworld. It's worth the cost. Bad: - no internet in the rooms - one bathroom upstairs for women and one downstairs for men, means a lot of walking - lockers are in the common area instead of in the rooms, which also means a lot...

This hostel is a cheap place with a good location. Good things: It's really close to Centro Cultural Dragão do Mar, not so far from Ponte dos Ingleses and Praia de Iracema. There is a bus stop just a few steps from the hostel. It's close to restaurants and another touristic places. Staff is friendly and the place is clean....

Overall a terrible stay. Main thing was the unfriendly staff. Would not recommend at all. Only one staff member at the hostel present whom English is very bad. She sights and has to call someone to translate. Not a good host, doesnt provide any information at arrival. Was very cranky when we stayed there and never said bon dia or...

It's a nice place and you're certainly getting a lot for what you pay. Clean beds, decent kitchen, fast wifi, good location in vicinity of the shopping area, beach and historic centre. Above all, however, it's a great place to hang out with friendly staff and beautiful outdoor area.

The hostel is very well located and the rooms are nice. The bathroom is really great and wifi works very well! The only problem was the temperature of the room... Definitely too hot and the fan was making so much noise that is was hard to sleep with! The owner is a nice person!

Just stayed there one night on my way back from Jeri. It's very basic, and it doesn't even offer toilet paper, but you can't beat the price. The location is great, close to Beira Mar and Dragao do Mar, and the hostel is walled, barbwired, and has an electronic lock. It doesn't look nice, but it's required as the city...

I have been to the hostel in july and august just after the World Cup. The hostel took advantage o this event to to renew everything from matresses to a new garden and kitchen. Safety, attention, cleanliness and location are still strong points.

We have been here for two days. The hostel is nearby the airport, ten minute more than less. At only ten minute to walk by Praia de Iracema, a little bit distance by the nigth life, but is possible go to walking too. Is also possible, the night, drinking fabulous caipirinha, in the square near the hostel. The place is...
