Amazing place. The hostel itself is nice and standart for Rio. Triple bunk beds with ac in the rooms, good breakfast and great WiFi. The staff however, is the real deal. All of them are super nice, super cool and local. They sat with all of the guests and made everyone feel like it's home. That way they helped the... More

I stayed here for four nights at the end of a 5 month trip and it's up there with my favourite hostels in South America. The staff there are fab - so friendly and helpful and Dominic and Louise really made me feel welcome. The rooms are basic as you'd expect but cleaned frequently. Bathrooms are kept really clean, split... More

Nice atmosphere and very nice people!!! a good place to go for a long period of time and on a adventure trip with friends or alone. I went alone to Rio and I must say this place made me make some very good friends.

This was my first 'real' hostel experience, staying more than one night and I loved it! This place is UBER safe, and the staff are the most helpful people on the planet. When my bank account was skimmed and I had no money, one of the staff lent me money from his own wallet to buy food, and when the... More

I traveled through South America for three months, staying almost exclusively in hostels. This was definitely the best hostel I stayed at in the trip and it made Rio de Janeiro an absoute highlight for me. The hostel premises itself are good and clean. the air conditioning in the rooms and public areas was a great advantage because Rio is... More

no doubt the best part of my trip to south America. Pedro, Dominic and last but definitely not least filipe were the best hosts a hostel could ever have. The guys are young but so friendly and so respectful of other travellers, the hostel knows the best places to go, the best things to see and also the best places... More

Hostel is located in perfect spot in Copacabana, close to various buss stops and metro station. It's easy accessible from both Rio airports by bus 2018 (13,5 R$). Staff is really amazing, will help you with everything. Breakfast is really good as well. Me and my friend had great time staying there.

Amazing staff (thank you so much Dominique, Luisa, Phillipe, Charlotte and Matthias) - all were friendly, polite, fun and really helpful, providing great recommendations. Nothing seemed too much of a chore for them and they went out if their way to help. The location is perfect. Right near a supermarket and loads of restaurants and shops. The beach is only... More
