We were given keys for the lockers. The breakfast was outstanding with fruit smoothies, eggs, breads and cakes. The breakfast and entry are... More

I was in Brazil for 2 weeks and stayed at many hostels. This one was by far the cleanest! It must have been renovated recently, since everything seemed new.
