For me Books is not a hostel, it is like home... I spent 4 incredible weeks there and absolutely love the experience! Felipe is amazing, the staff is really cool and friendly. The living is huge enough and have some good puffs where you can have some rest after having a great party, ohh the breakfast is soooo good!!! Also, the location is really close to bars and nightclubs...Good caipirinhas...Great atmosphere, nice people from different places, good parties, beautiful city, what else could I ask for... I just wish I could have stayed more time, but of course I will be back soon!
