The hostel has tonnes of character and a really friendly environment. English is spoken extremely well (except by the guy on nights), but there's a good mix of brazilians as well as foreigners, so it's easy to get stuck in with the locals which is great. The breakfast is excellent - lots of fresh fruit and cake, as well as... More

good breakfast, location are very good, near metro . Charming house central but quite, friendly staff . Only downside don t use the 15 bed dorm room if you like to sleep. I prefer the 6 bed dorm on second level.

I stayed in February 2014 in Villa Carioca Hostel and i can just say was a fantastic stay!! Toilet cleaned, paper substituted, soap refilled everyday. 6 people dormitory with fan and Air conditioned. Big breakfast, totally not-skimped on quantities. Free wi-fi. Also the location is very comfortable: get anywhere thanks to the Metro station Botafogo close by and Rua Clemente... More

I booked online for 3 nights and think I ended up staying here over 2 weeks... Found it hard to leave! On a quiet dead end road, feels ultra safe as you have a 24 hr guard surveying the street. Plenty of transport on your doorstep (busses and underground), beach down the road/running,cycling & fitness track on water side. Shops,... More

Good location, very quiet, no street noise. Nice helpful staff, good breakfast. I was in the 15 bed dorm which can feel a little crowded, but was sufficient for my needs. A lot of Brazilians stay here, so you can meet a wide variety of interesting people and not only foreigners.

This one is in the middle of everything, near, very near from Flamengo Metro Station and you can go for any place in Rio very fast. Vila Carioca stay in a closed street and in the end of this street, in... More

While this hostel has a very friendly atmosphere, the staff is very helpful and the toilette are clean, the breakfast was tasteless and the facilities aren't in the best state. If you want to go to the beach, expect to be there in 20-30 minutes because the Botafogo ones aren't nice, so you have to take a bus or walk... More

It is easy to find and the street is very secure with its own security guards. There are small monkeys in the trees outside and from the end of the road is a glorious view of Cristo Redentor. It is a three-minute walk from Botafogo's metro station, making it only 20 minutes from the beaches at Copacabana and Ipanema, and... More
