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.

We've stayed in a private room and it was really quiet and nice. We were able to leave our stuff before the check in and after leaving the room. 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

I was looking forward to this hostel, the favelas have such beautiful views and lovely people. But I would strongly recommend NOT staying here. The woman who runs the hostel reception double booked our beds. So in the middle of the night drunken guests staying at the hostel came back and tried to kick us out. No one was available... More

I was there last year, the view is fantastic and the people were friendly. Unfortunately my laptop, my digital camera and even my sunglasses were stolen. Someone went in my room and stole everything. From a Brazilian guy, they stole all his money. It is almost clear that this was a guest. The hostel is not safe, nobody is in... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the chill hostel a couple of weeks ago. We really enjoyed our stay and wish that we could have stayed longer. Luiz is a great host and makes you feel really welcome. The location is safe. It is up a big hill but if you don't want to walk you can get a lift... More

The fact that the hostel was in a favela was okay, it was a very safe neighborhood. And we didnt mind the walk up the hill, we tried to enjoy our daily expercise. So the location was just fine, it was only the hostel that was very BAD. No house monkies, no fruits in the garden, and no welcome drink... More
