Firstly, we were slightly confused when we arrived, as the advertised photo's of the pousada on this very website were actually of the green hotel next door. Cue some disappointment when we were shown our room, but in actual fact - it was everything we wanted/needed - with a hammock and balcony overlooking the sea. The rooms are quite small - but given the price, quite reasonable for Brazil and it was cleaned every day. The bathroom was clean - and the shower was brilliant - a massive head and hot all the time!!! Their were slight annoyances - noise levels, electricity black outs, dripping air con, not enough towels etc - but you have to remember this is very much a hostel - not a hotel.
Federico is a charming and wonderful host - communication is sometimes difficult, so some Italian would help! Having a free breakfast is great, although the same small choice everyday can become a little boring if you are staying more than a week. Location is fantastic - a 2 minute walk to second beach - but far enough away to beat the noise!
I would recommend this hostel for the price - but you will look longingly at other hotels/hostels wondering whether you've got a good deal.More
