The hostel itself isnt that spectacular to be honest, the location is the best! Every night 2 caipirinha`s for the price of 1 going together with an amazing sunset. I think one of the best sunset`s i`ve ever seen, but you have to be lucky with that ofcourse. The hostel is a short walk away from the beach, which is...

I stayed at this hostel for over a week and absolutely loved it! I was in the 5-person all female room Jururé and had a very comfortable stay with plenty of space for luggage, a large bathroom, and a private deck. There is a nice atmosphere as they keep the place very clean and there are lots of open spots...

This hostel is in an awesome location and overlooks the lagoon. Its a short walk into town and the beach. The included breakfast was great as was the free caipirinha each night. However, we stayed in a 4 person dorm that was attached to a larger 10 or so person dorm. There was a single bathroom for the 14 people...

Water was off while we were there which made stay unpleasant for us for using bathroom/ showers/ cooking. Good location. Staff are helpful. Breakfast in the bar is very good, lunch was advertised daily but was not provided. Nights out organised by hostel are more expensive than if you organise taxi/ book ticket yourself!

Me and my friend have been there for three nights and had a fabolous time there. We booked the 6-bed female dorm. We had our own bathroom which was really big with a lot of space. The shower had also a lot of space. In the bathroom were a hairdryer and hairstraighter! The room was clean, the staff very friendly...

How do I define my time at Backpackers? Awesome, fun, active, social and easy. All in all: a great stay. Staff on the whole were lovely, apart from the Argentinian receptionist who evidently hates gringo travellers but chooses to work in a hostel. We were not the only ones to complain about her bad attitude. She could easily suck the...

Only downside is you need to catch 2 buses to get there and its a fair walk (5-10 minutes) to the beach. Breakfast is very good, they give you a free capirinha every night, place is kept clean, there are a few toilets unlike some hostels I´ve been to and it was fairly cheap to stay there. Ok so they...

There is so much to say about this place; good, bad and down right annoying. The Good: Location is a massive win for this establishment. The views over Lagoa da Conceicao are simply incredible, providing a beautiful location to chill during the day or night, read a book, indulge in food or simply drink and socialise. The lake and a...

“If you are looking for a quiet time you should pick a room with 4-6 beds. Otherwise join the party people and enjoy your staying in a room with 8-12 beds! You will be good in either ways!”

“In low season it`s better to take a dorm in stead of private room sometimes, cause you don`t pay that much and sometimes you have a lot of privacy cause there s no one else in the room”
