I thought I would go through HI because they are known all over the world and I didn't had time to do research for other hostels. I paid around 70 Reais for a tiny room with 4 beds. For the same price you can find a pousada with a private bedroom or even your own bathroom if you look around...

We arrived Lencois of 5 nights total, didn't book a place in advance. The staff here welcomed us very well. We planed on staying for 2 nights but stayed all 5 nights. We would like to specially note Fernanda! She was amazing and helped us with every little thing we needed. Bottom line- the value for money was perfect.

Nice staff, nice breakfast, super clean and a nice place to meet people from all over the world! Good Price!! Although it is near Rua das Pedras (Rock Street) where everything happens, you can really rest at night without to listening the night sounds.

Overall it's a nice place that offers an average service and provides tour guides to the near park of Chapada Diamantina. Positive sides: the breakfast is nice and the bathrooms big and clean. Also, very nice garden with hammocks where to chill. The staff is very kind and open to help. I liked the idea of giving a wristband to...

This was probably the most expensive hostel we've stayed in (70 reais for a 8 mixed dorm). They literally charge money for everything. To take a shower after check-out costs 15 reais... Furthermore, I had to make a call to the airline and I wanted to use the phone. They charged me 9 reais for that. The shower was full...

Fantastic Staff, I did not stay here as they did not have room during my dates, but I booked all my tours with them, including Fumaca Waterfall, 4day Paty Valley Hike and Poco (Cave) Tour.
