Ótimo custo-benefício
Usei duas noites, não consecutivas, o Hostel Refúgio só como passagem mas fui muito bem atendida. Agendaram meu transfer para Canoa Quebrada e me deram informações que precisei.

Problema no Café da Manhã
Viajei para fazer o concurso do TJ-CE. Avisamos ao Hostel que teríamos que tomar o café da manhã as 6 horas devido a prova ser pela manhã, mas eles não aceitaram e insistiram que só teria café a partir das 7 horas, mesmo quando nós dissemos que não teríamos problema em nós mesmos prepararmos o café.

Estadia de um dia
Localização boa, próximo ao centro da cidade e de vários pontos turísticos como a catedral e o mercado central de artesanato. A estrutura do Hostel é agradável, com vários ambientes para sentar, relaxar, conversar com os amigos, assistir TV ou acessar o laptop. A cozinha compartilhada funciona 24h, então é fácil levar algo para comer e preparar lá.

Immer wieder gerne
hostel war für den preis super, personal super motiviert , freundlich, hilfsbereit und sprachkompetent. Fruehstück super frisch, reichhaltige Auswahl, ständig aufgefüllt. Gegend um das Motel ist leider sehr ruhig, Bassilien ist nachts leider möglicherweise gefährlich, angepasstes Verhalten keinen Schmuck tragen, wenig Bargeld usw. oder Taxi nutzen. Toller Ausgangspunkt für alle möglichen Touren organisierte oder auf eigene Faust. Zentrale Lage zum Zentrum, oder zum Strand praia iracema, dragao a mar (Nachtleben)

Hostel Bom! Eu indico!
Gostei bastante do hostel. Com certeza voltaria e também indicaria. Apenas uma sinalização a fazer...alguns hóspedes que ficaram no mesmo quarto que eu fiquei faziam muito barulho quando chegavam de madrugada. Teve uma noite que uma hóspede fumou na área do quarto. O que é proibido pelo hostel, mas assim que a recepção foi informada, eles foram lá solicitar que ela não fumasse mais.
