Best value hostel in Arrecife
I arranged last minute trip to Arrecife, and booked this hostel based on reviews and the keen price. I consider I made the best VFM choice. The Hostel staff were very welcoming and it was spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable and I was allocated a room with private, rather than shared bathroom. The bathroom was very compact, but everything worked perfectly and again spotlessly clean.the towels were much thicker than I expected. There is a Fridge and kettle in the room and you have access/use of a kitchenette, if you wish to cook your own food. The Hostel is very convenient for the town / harbour area (2min walk) but a little distance from the bus station(s)

A bit dissappointing one...
It could have been a really nice stay in a nicely and conveniently located hostel but... my bad luck started on a day of arrival - as check-in starts at 1pm and I have arrived for 2pm my room was not ready and had to wait until about 4pm to get into my room... Room was made tidy and clean but don't be fooled by the pictures used to advertise the hotel - there was no welcoming bottle of wine/water, not even any cups or glasses you could use for your own drink (there was a kettle though ;). instead of personal toiletries - one shower gel dispenser on the wall... But it was not that important - the worst was that it has been advertised that hostel runs daily housekeeping and my room has not been visited through all my stay there (7 nights). The bin has not been emptied, towels not changed :( Happily I have chosen double room for a single use so half of my stay I have used one set of towels and slept in one bed, then moved to another ;) As the bin was just one - I had to leave it a bit overflowing... and the most important thing - happily there was enough toilet paper on a roll!!! ;) After those inconveniences - noise and slamming doors (mentioned also in other reviews) were really just nothing ;) So I think my overall experience is turning towards rather a negative one... Ahh.. And to not to paint everything in just black - WiFi router was in my room so at least internet was reliable and fast ;)

Fab little place in the heart of Arrecife
Fantastic hostel in the heart of Arrecife. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the rooms are clean and comfortable. It is more like a 2* or 3* hotel than a hostel, but has a fab shared kitchen guests can use. The location is great- right on the marina-with loads of cafes and restaurants less than a minute away. We were in room 304, and it got a bit noisy first thing in the morning with the cleaners starting their rounds, and loading washing machines etc, so ask for a lower floor if noise bothers you. However, that said, it's cheap, pleasant and friendly, and I would definitely stay again as it it so convenient.
