Eu adorei o hostel! Tem uma vibe calma no meio da natureza e ainda sim os donos fazem pequenos sociais ao redor da piscina pra galera se juntar. Dá praça eh uns 10 minutos andando mas o lugar eh lindo demais!

6/10 Good

O ambiente é agradável, os voluntários e colaboradores são bacanas. A localização não é boa, é um pouco longe do centro em um bairro de moradores, não recomendo para quem viaja sozinha, todas as noites tinha medo de voltar pela rua que os moradores te encaravam e uma parte é toda de barro e com mato dos lados. Não gostei do café da manhã que é bem simples com praticamente as mesmas opções todos os dias em um prato feito pela colaboradora, (café, leite e suco artificial). Fiquei em uma suíte privativa, para solicitar toalha adicional e cobertor é necessário pagamento.

8/10 Very Good

Muito bom para quem busca integração, conhecer gente nova de todos os lugares. Foi a minha primeira experiência em hostel, optei por suíte (quarto duplo com banheiro privativo). Funcionários (incluindo voluntários) muito simpáticos e atenciosos! Café da manhã servido individualmente devido à pandemia. A localização é fora da muvuca do morro, caminhando cerca de 15 minutos da igreja. Recomendo utilizarem “táxis / Uber de carrinho de mão” para transportar as malas até lá, por ser mais distante, cobraram 20 reais por mala.
