Pousada dos Franceses Review

On rainy days young people lounge on the couches in this classic backpacker's hostel that's complete with do-it-yourself laundry facilities and a cook-for-yourself kitchen. Three communal rooms are separated by gender and sleep up to eight people. There are also 12 private rooms with two or three beds. The bathrooms leave much to be desired—the shower is just a drain in the floor and a curtain drawn across one end of the room.
