This place is tolerable only if you literally just want a bed to sleep in and don't care about anything else. The place is old, there are remnants of dead insects in common areas, the bedroom had an odd smell to it.

This hostel is very close to the savassi area, which is full of bars and restaurants and thats cool. Unfortunately, service there was awful. Bahtroom was always dirty, the room was very noisy. Breakfast was ok, but i wouldnt stay there again.

If you are considering staying at this hostel, stop now. There are few things you could do, during an entire lifetime, that could prove as disgusting as booking a room in Sorriso do Lagarto. I'm not qualified to talk about the Ouro Preto facilities, but qualifying the BH ones as 'merely' awful would be terribly unfair. As the other reviewer... More
