Right in the middle of Copacabana, Lapa, and Santa Teresa. Right next to the metro too with access to lots of bars and restaurants. Mariano, Clemente, Carolina, and the rest of the staff...awesome!!! Really good for the value, too.

The rooms here are way to small, 6 people but basically only one can enter at a time, no space for opening bags etc. The toilets are the worst feature. Each one only contains one toilet and shower leading to long waits each morning and evening. Wifi is also very poor. Good location and cheap enough during the world cup... More

Too expensive and too crwoded! Too many beds compared to the provided bath rooms and area to hang out. I never stayed in such an overcrowded place for such a price. The stuff was friendly though and compensated a little for the rest...

While this hostel was not the worst I have ever stayed at, it was far from the best. the staff was overall more concerned with their computers and cell phones than with travelers. There where times I came home at night and the one staff member/security was asleep with his cell phone in his hand. The rooms were musty and... More

The beds are really comfy, the staff is wonderful and it's s huge plus that almost all of them speak both Portuguese, Spanish and English. It's located in a... More

O hostel é muito bem localizado. Situa-se no centro do Rio de Janeiro e possui fácil acesso (próximo ao metrô e paradas de ônibus) a quaisquer pontos turísticos do Rio. São muitas acomodações por quarto (treliches!) e poucos banheiros para muita gente. Durante minha estadia, faltou água durante 2 dias. O atendimento não é dos melhores, mas possui um bom... More

The place was awful, the staff were useless, except for a man with blonde tips in his hair (sorry I didn't get his name!) he was friendly and seemed quite genuine, the others were lazy and untrustworthy. The room was disgusting for the price we paid. The bed was awful we didn't even get a sheet for the first night.... More
