As we returned to the room after a heavy rain we had a lake in the room - meaning everything was flooded including our backpacks. They told us it happend before... More

I stayed in this hostel for six nights for Carnival 2015. It was one of the worst hostels I have ever stayed in. Before tackling the bad, I will take a moment to mention the two good elements: - The staff. The staff of the hostel are great. I found them always very friendly and smiley. It kills me to... More

This review is based upon a five nights stay at the hostel. First off: the check in is easy, friendly and professional. The members of the staff are helpful and will give you any advice you will need. So far, so good. The rooms are very basic - I stayed in a 10 bed room dorm - and simple matters... More

Our first stop in Brazil made us feel at home, the friendly staff helped us cet around the city and gave us tips on where to have a good time. The location is great and the price can't be beat! And the breakfast included is delicious!

It's very nice to stay in the hall, the staff are very welcoming, great people that give any indications without doubt. I would however avoid to pay the low cost suit, wich cost/quality ratio is not as interesting as the shared room, where you can anyway meet very interesting people.

In the middle of nearly everything with easy connection by public transportation to the rest of the city, great breakfast buffet that pays for the room by itself. Staff was quite helpful, giving information as required and always smiling.

It's good for its price... It's easy to get there (Get down in the "Rio Vermelho" bus stop), staff is pretty kind and the breakfast is nice but bathrooms are often busy, the bed sheet and covers are too old and hygenic conditions aren't the best ones.

Rooms and bathrooms are old and dirty . Most of the linen are just rags, some sheets and pillow cases are just very old, but pillows are dirty. The bedrooms are tiny, little ventilated for the number of beds. Not even private dorms have a lock and the rooms that are next to the street are noisy even at night.... More
