The garden area with its pool was lovely. In addition it was nice to have the shared room with its own bathroom. This was really nice.

Well located hostel, close to Olinda city centre and shopping. Downside: it's on one of the busiest streets; better make sure to stay in one of the back rooms as far away from the street as possible. Big downside: cleanliness! Beds & sheets were ok but the bathroom was dirty and not cleaned during my 2 day stay. Also, the hostel is quite old by now and could do with some renovation instead of just new paint. All in all: good value for money, and a good place to stay but could do better.
