We want to remain one of the Top 10 Hostels in Brazil

As objective we want to manage a Hostel and a Pousada (Inn), which philosophy consists in putting the guest and his wishes at the core of our activity.
From the very beginning we were looking for becoming the best Hostel in Fortaleza, now the target is to maintain this position together with our second house - the Pousada - offering excellent services in an environment oriented to European standard.

In a cozy atmosphere that our guests feel at home, we provide with dedication a wide range of services in order that the Hostel is not just a place to spend the night.

The names Refúgio Hostel Fortaleza and Pousada Refúgio Hostel Fortaleza ensure quality. With our products and services we want to offer the best long-term relation between cost/benefit and achieve the highest guest satisfaction. In 2014 we defined our goal as following: "Within five years we want to be among the 10 best *) Hostels of Brazil." It seems that we achieved that goal but our promise is that we try harder, every day. 

*) according to the surveys of Lonely Planet, TripAdvisor, Booking.com, Hostelworld and others
