                    hostel mit schöner lage”


                    anfänglich waren wir sehr erschrocken über das Zimmer; es gab ein verglastes loch in der wand, so dass das Zimmer sehr dunkel war. scheinbar war es auch das beste im ganzen hostel…aber letztlich wollten wir nicht dort einziehen. das Zimmer war relativ klein und für vier ausgelegt, allerdings waren wir nur zu zweit. zu viert wäre es mir zu eng gewesen. aber das bad war sehr geräumig und sauber (roch etwas, wegen des fehlenden Fensters) und gehörte mit zum Zimmer. AC tat ihren dienst und war leise. nur die Mitarbeiter am nachmittag konnten englisch, aber waren sehr hilfsbereit. die küchennutzung war sehr schön. das zugehörige frühstück, war etwas mau (aber nicht weit weg vom brasilianischen Standard in hostels, wie wir im laufe der reise festellten). Hauptsache Kaffee. die Lage im schönen santa teresa is super, auch gut angebunden an öffis, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Essens- und nightlifemöglichkeiten. es war immer sehr angenehm und gemütlich vor dem hostel zu sitzen. es wirkte auch recht familiär, da nicht viele Zimmer vorhanden sind. internet funktioniert gut (sofern es nicht zu lange regnet) und es gab sogar PCs.
