The hostel is situated in the "favela light" on the hill so for the payback you will get a spectacular favela and the see view. It's about 10min walk up the hill. We stayed there for two weeks is double room, twin room and dorm too. All of the options are OK. We could see that place is still in... More

The view was good and the communal lounge space was nice, but other than that I disliked the place. The whole place is run down and grubby, in need of a good facelift. Our room looked nothing like those advertised. Although being large, the room was very dirty, filled with dust and spiderwebs. The bathroom was dirty, the shower so... More

I like the place because of the view and price. Our room was very dirty toilet błocie, dust and spiderweb everywhere. The share bath and room was very clean. So if you wish to choose this place take the share space.

I'm a solo female traveller doing research. I found the Chill Hostel to be idyllic in its setting and it had a lovely energy. Everything is spacious so you can always find a spot to go and Chill and do my work. I found all the staff really helpful and extended my stay from three nights to 8 after watching... More

loved to stay in this old original oscar niemeyer house, up the hill, in a save little favela with an amazing view to the copacabana. the rooms are simple but clean and the management always helpful. the owner is kind of "local" and knows the best places in rio.

Anna, the girl who was in charge of the hostel was really helpfull and nice too. The neighborhood it's safe and it's full of policemen, there are some great views in... More

Beautiful views and a nice hostel to relax in, but the staff were almost never at the desk and often hard to find. In tip of that, we arrived to find that the previous occupant of our room had been allowed to extend her stay, despite me having booked the room for the next several days; and when we did... More

The location of this hostel is great, right in a favela by copacabana beach. The views are lovely and the hostel is nice enough. However having booked our room over a month in advance we arrived to find that it had been double booked - something that happens weekly according to a long term resident. We were going out that...

I love Rio and the previous time I stayed there I stayed at a hostel in lapa - good for a night out but not to relax. This hostel is at the bottom of a favela near lemme beach. The view from the balcony is amazing (sunset etc) and hostel has a very chilled vibe. You can bring your own... More
