This is a Trusted Review. Why?
overall i did not liked the location at all ... it is deep inside and far away from all the aspects like shopping malls,shops,restaurants.
40 BRL was the price/night (Bed+breakfast+wireless internet) ... it is ok if someone just wants to drop off luggage and to sleep at night ... but forget about the breakfast which is ZERO and as per this hostel's policey of WIRELESS INTERNET ... which wasnt available ... the safari hostel have a problem in the line and for this i was completely dissatissfied ... i paid for 2 nights + half price of the bed for over staying only 3 hours ... i did not liked this because as per safari hostel's WORDS "the free wireless" WAS not there ... so i am supposed to reduce the money BUT instead of giving me discount for the past 2 days NO INTERNET ... he charged 20 BRL for just 3 hours ... well overall i will never ever recommend anyone to stay there.
