Enjoy the end of the afternoon in a special way. We offer a tea time with crackers, coffee, teas and cakes toe soothe the day and say welcome to the night. Enjoy it!


When we feel the mood, we use to organize a delightful luau (a Hawaiian-inspired fest on the beach) with our guests. The sea breeze, the moon, good music and typical Brazilian drinks such as “caipirinha” or “pitu-cola”… makes the fun guaranteed!


All of the living rooms of the hostel are permeated by the exhibition “Pelas Ruas que Andei… Arte nas paredes” [“The Streets I Have Walked… Art on the Walls”]. It is a permanent, mutant and creative art exhibition, an ingenious bricolage of vintage objects, artworks and musical instruments. The collection is curated by the artist Paulo Mello, in permanent collaboration with our Pirates-Hosts and our guests.


Cine Popcorn São Luis Inspired by the charming "Cine São Luiz", opened in 1952, our TV and video room translates the hostel warmth. We have cable TV, a variety of original DVDs and a special popcorn. Choose your movie! (We accept donations of original DVDs).


To those guests who did something very special to the hostel, transforming it in a better way, we conceive the honor to leave a mark of their feet on our ceiling, at our hall of fame “Trilhos do Mundo” [World Tracks]. Be yourself the next one!


Our Pirates-Hosts are students. Here we care a lot about culture, arts, study and personal initiatives, always looking for a plural development. Piratas da Praia is a bridge among living the reality of today and dreaming about the tomorrow. We are working now for the aim to become a school-hostel. The collective experiences lived here becomes individual references and learnings for each Pirate-Host’s life.
