Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Stayed 1 night in Mar 2019

4/5 Good

Drop off you bags and head to the beach.
O Principe is a basic standard hotel. It's a no frills hotel but if you need a room just to crash out, leave your bags, and shower, this place is perfect. Seriously, why would someone travel just to spend the day in a hotel room anyways? The hotel is run by two brothers who aren't very talkative. The perk is that it one block from the beach.

4/5 Good

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
On beach doorstep. Friendly locals.
Great location taxi from airport was 120 reals but quite far away. Locals friendly. On doorstep to beach. Hotel could have been cleaner but staff friendly.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
This place is a dump!
This hostel is in absolutely terrible conditions. The rooms are extremely dirty - I was afraid I would catch a disease - the bed cloth has holes and blood stains, the paint is peeling, the bathroom smells bad. The beds are uncomfortable - super think mattress - the TV got only 1 channel and sits on the mini-refrigerator, the door doesn't close well. The only positive thing about this hostel is the location: near the Farol da Barra and public transportation. Still, I do not recommend this hostel! Choose another hostel.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
great location
This hotel is greatly located, one block from 2 beaches, 1 block from the gorgeous lighthouse/fort. Restaurants next door. The rooms are a bit old, but everything functions, including a cold split AC. The roins are cleaned every day.
