Positives: The owner is extremely convivial and accommodating. Integrated package tours offered at the hostel are quite convenient. Quirky decorative style of the public lounge and rooms is rather original and refreshing. Negatives: Uncomfortable beds, so those with back problems should stay away. Construction was ongoing during our stay-begins at 8 am which is extremely inconsiderate for those wanting a lie-in. We constantly awoke to the sounds of mice scurrying around in the attic above us. The toilet flush is incredibly loud-I think you can hear everybody flush their toilet One particular member of staff ( front desk lady in blue who predominantly works the night shift) has an awfully unpleasant approach. Try not to cook in her presence if you are not Brazilian, as she has a tendency to offer condescending advice. In brief, it is far too highly priced for what you get, which is mediocrity. I was drawn in by the hype on trip advisor but, in truth, this hostel does not deserve to be #1 under speciality lodging.

If you're looking for a great hostel in Arraial, Arraial d'Ajuda Hostel is the place. It's simply perfect. The atmosphere, the architecture, the services.. It's complete. Most of Arraial are Pousadas not hostels. Arraial d'Ajud Hostel looks more like a pousada but where you can only rent one bed and meet other travelers. I call it the Pousada Hostel. Carla, one of the owners will make you feel home and will always make sure everything is great. There is a nice pool but too didn't have time to try it. As I was always busy with the beach. Which is about 15 minutes walk or you can take a motor-taxi if you want. And the hostel is located only 2 minutes walking away from the main square, Broadway street, and Mucuje street where everything happens. Thank you Arraial d'Ajuda Hostel for offering such a nice experience.

My friend and I stayed here for over a week during Christmas. Mostly everyone in the hostel was Brazilian and as 2 girls from the United States, we couldnt feel MORE welcomed by the friendly staff especially the manager, Carla. The hostel is clean and beautiful and in a great location just a 2 minute walk from the center and 10 to the beach. There is a lovely swimming pool that is clean as well as a functioning kitchen and delicious breakfast! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

If hostels would be rated this one would had 5 stars! I loved the interior design of the common area and the patio with the pool. If I wouldn't be travelling, I could spend a whole day there and enjoy the positive vibe of the place without going out ;)

Its a great hostel, staff are great, always willing to help, breakfast is complete (juice, fresh fruits (2 everyday, bread, cakes, etc), dorms are cleanned everyday, nice kitchen if you want to prepare your own meal, located at downtown with a short walk to the beach and to buses and vans that will drive you all around. Close to supermarket and banks.
