Location is indeed super relaxed a bit outside of everything but close enough to stores/bars and beach to do by foot. Nice chillout area with hamacks and there is a sunterrace! Rooms are spacy enough with lockers for your big backpack too. Every room has his own bathroom and cleaniss is on point. However in the kitchen this is sometimes... More

I arrived to the hostel at 4 am like I've wrote to the ahead. Instead of welcome me they told me that I should either pay for an extra night (without mentioning that before) or to come back later. So I left and wonder alone in the night, in Brazil, in a city I don't know and with a language... More

If somebody welcomes you (and helps you with your bags) as your transfer van pulls over is a good indication of good accommodation, then Republika Hostel fits the bill! :) Overall, clean space, good layout, great staff and hosts. With friendly and helpful hosts + good company, it was easy to feel right at home. I stayed in a 4-bed... More

Spent 5 nights at the hostel, it is really comfortable, clean, and safe. Had some cool chats with people from colombia, peru and canada. The staff was always ready and eager to help. Well localized, close fo the beach and the convention center. A must for people who like to meet and interact with other tourists.

Really helpful staff. Close to the beach and transport links. AC on overnight. Breezy communal areas and rooftop terrace. Nice atmosphere. Relax to music in the hammocks and rocking chairs. Good kitchen but very warm. Could do with a fan for the dining table. Lockers available for food. The sink was in the bedroom which took up storage space. The... More

We spent three nights at Republika. The staff is friendly, helpful AND speaks English. Cozy rooms, lovely house, comfortable hammocks and the little bar serves good cocktails. Unfortunately the breakfast starts at 7:30, I think that is a bit late if you are planning to continue your trip or if you want to do a tour (e.g. snorkling in Maracajaú).

Ponta Negro is definitely the best area to stay in Natal. The hostel is right by the beach, within walking distance of the busiest stretch but not quite in it. All the girls and guys running it are super chatty and friendly also.

The hostel is literally 5-10 mins away from the Ponta Negro beach. Beautiful Praia by the way! There was a social gathering at the beach which was great because there was live music! Along with the Praia, there are many places to eat just a walking distance away. It's literally a great location and as a someone who's been to... More
