Economy Accommodations in Recife
Economy accommodations in Recife is limited, but there are some good options:
Piratas da Praia This is a small and friendly hostel that attracts national and international backpackers. It is in a great location just a block from the beach and very close to some of the best bars, restaurants and nightclubs in Recife. I have stayed here myself in the past and can highly recommended this as a great place for the budget traveler. From R$26 (low season). Av. Conselheiro Aguiar, nº 2034 / 307, Boa viagem, tel. (81) 3326-1281 / 9649-6887.
Albergue Maracatus de Recife. This hostel is also in Boa Viagem. It is a short walk from the beach and close to the shopping centre. It also benefits from a small pool. Rua Maria Carolina, 185, Boa Viagem, tel. (81) 3326-1221 / 9292-5670.
Hostel Boa Viagem This hostel is a little further from the beach but still in a central location. Women travelling alone should probably not choose this option if they want to go out alone at night. The streets in the area can be very quiet after 10pm. Other than this concern, the place seems well presented and has good facilities. From R$30 (Low Season), Boa Viagem (81) 3326-9572 / (81) 3466-2486.
Pousada Villa Boa Vista Close to downtown and the historic areas of the city. This hostel seems clean and well presented. In terms of location it is close to the historic city centre and the heart of the gay district, but the immediate area is not the most picturesque, and we would only recommend this option to the streetwise seasoned backpacker. Boa Viagem would be a better option for most travelers, especially those wanting to spend more time on the beach. Rua Miguel Couto, 81, Boa Vista.
Hotel Pousada da Praia This is a quite basic hotel / pousada, but in a great location just off the main beach avenue Aveneida Boa Viagem.
