Pleasant
Location, near the beach and bus. Staff was ok. Flexible with check in and out time
Shower was cold or hot. Dirty overall. Small place and not enough space to relax. Not enough bathrooms for everyone. Small kitchen.

The location is pretty good you can be in the center in 20 minutes by public transit
The apartment is very basic but if you need cheap accommodation for a few nights it will do

There was one afternoon when no staff (or guests, presumably) were in - around 15:00 - so I couldn’t get access to the hostel and that was very frustrating

Disappointing
Nice bed
To start with, everything is kind of dirty. It’s hard to find the place cos there is no sign or anything. I was leaving, I asked to leave my backpack and the woman who is an owner of the hostel agreed to do that for 5 reales which was ok for me. I packed my staff, came to her, left it in a place that she said and she told me: I ve changed my mind, it’s 10. I was shocked and asked her: why did you change your mind. She answered screaming that she doesn’t wanna answer to any questions and if I ask something, then I must take the backpack with myself cos I can’t leave it at the hostel anymore.

Before one guests mobile was stolen, the owner was kind. She offered coffee every morning. Owner and staff can speak basic English, strong direct, after taking time to get adapt it. It located safety area as Rio. 安宿です。そのため低所得者が泊まるので、盗難も発生しています
So after the mobile rubbing was happened, the owner changed her attitude. She asked to our roommates to check out. But our dom door was always unrocked, always open. Every guests could come into our room. Actually I saw several times that some guests who stayed other rooms came into our room. I said to owner in polite way why she doubted only for us. Then she got angry and kicked me out. I really doubt her personality. It's really cheap place. That's why many poor people can stay, then sometimes the rubbings were occurred. At night it was quiet. But in early morning, owner started chat loudly and played music loudly in every morning. Bathroom : the light turns off each few mins. It's annoying. Also horrible smell through out to even next door. Just whithin 1 night, they asked me to change room 3times. Really disorganized. Bed bugs in my bed. Basically it's clean, but owner and staff remained dishes until next morning. Why..... Laundry service is 30reals, 9us$. Too much price. I know AC is limited in almost hostel in Brazil. This hostel too. I do understand it. But firstly, it didn't work well and was very noisy.
