I spent 2 nights there with a friend during the world cup. Location is excellent, near the beach and center. Staff was helpful, rooms were comfortable and clean. Price was quite good considering we were during World Cup.

I stayed one night at the Terrasse Hostel and really enjoyed the location close to the probably best beach of Rio de Janeiro, close to lot's of good restaurants and close to the language school. Also the staff was super-friendly and helped me with all questions and problems I had. However, I payed 75 Reals for a weekday night in... More

Loved my stay here during Carnival. Great location one street back from the beach and a short walk to bus and metro stops. Ipanema had some great blocos and was great having a central place to come back to. Staff were really friendly and helpful, helping me set up my sim card and plan the next stages of my trip....

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.
