Terrasse hostel has a great location: one block to the beach on the street full of coffees, bar and restaurants. We had a huge room on the top floor, it was nice and clean with lot of space. But all other rooms, toilets and staircase are really tiny in this hostel. Hostel provides bed sheets but not towels. Facilities are... More

As far as hostels go, this is a really great place to stay. It is central to all essential locations; beach, restaurants and cafes, shops. The rooms are your average bunks, you get clean sheets. Towels are unfortunately not included, so you have to bring your own. The hostel serves a basic breakfast of bread rolls, ham, cheese, fruit salad,... More

I think you have to realize first that this is Rio, not a small downtown village. Space is expensive, so don't complain don't don't have much space, because it's just that way in Rio. Have to say that I felt really welcome here. Every question I had they tried to help me with (however stupid they were sometimes), the breakfast... More

Location is perfect but the room that I stayed was really tight and small for 4 people. Besides that is a good price, employees kindly, and very close to ipanema beach. However, the Hostel need to improve their quality, including better common toillets, providing some ventilation and less noisy rooms.

We couldn't find any accomodation for one of our nights in Rio so we decided to stay there. The room was very tiny, the sheets not very clean, the bathrooms both (tiny and not very clean). There is no air conditionning so the night was hot and noisy. Breakfast is quite bad All of that for the same price as... More

Good hostel. Clean. Excelent location near Ipanema Beach, restaurants, bars, night club/disco and shops. The staff -Rosa, Rick & Nuno was professional, very helpful and friendly. Fantastic atmosphere, very gay friendly. I stayed 5 days and I had good time. Rio is super! I will definitely be staying here again.

We stayed at the hostel during carnival. Were really lucky to even get a room, because we booked very late. We only got a 4-bedroom and had to share with two others. The room was super small, we had no AC and to therefore leave the windows open. When my friend told me good night, I didn't even hear her... More

During Carnival never stay there, except if you do not intend to sleep at night, but during the morning. There´s no stove in the kitchen, so it´s impossible to cook. Fan in the bedroom for couple definitely doesn´t refresh enough in summer. Its bathroom is extremely tight. Staff is polite and Ms. Rosa is extremely kind and helpful. The best... More

We booked one night at this hostel before reading reviews here which was an immediate mistake. Once we arrived, the lady at the reception (very friendly and professional) told us our reservation does not exist. After we showed her the confirmation email sent by a guy who works there - called Simon, we realized they lost our reservation. Hostel was... More
