Me and some friends stayed there for two nights, the first breakfast we had the fruit was spoiled. The check out was terrible! They had an issue with the computer and they were saying that on of us did not pay and we showed them that we did pay, and they had us there for over an hour.

It is a pity to hear you did not like our hostel and we take into consideration your critics. Sometimes the receptionists are new and therefore errors happen but the only thing that really happened was that the check out took a bit more time that it normally does trying to figure out about the payments but at NO moment...

The staff was friendly, the location is perfect (near lots of restaurants and 10 minutes from the beach), and they're good about providing you with recommendations. The pool was an added bonus. However, make no mistake that this is a hostel - for better or for worse. It can get quite noisy and busy in the lobby and there are... More

Very good location close to Copacabana beach. Especially the personnel was very kind and helpful. I arrived very late at night with not enough money on hand to pay regular room fee. Then received a cheaper price from Carla (who runs the hostel) to be able to stay. Breakfast was included and Wifi fast.

Good, clean hostel with helpful and happy staff! The location in Copacabana is good,. being close to the beach and a walk away from local bars and restaurants. Is a good hostel also if you are travelling alone as there is a friendly vibe and a communial place to have drinks etc and get to know everyone!

The hostel is good. Especially the staff I liked a lot. The attention was the best. I eminently like to thank pretty Paloma in the bar; Cecilia, Hernand and Matias in the reception; Nicolas in the kitchen and Adenilza for the breakfast. Also thank you to the ladies of the cleaning; you did a hard job very well.

Good location near Copacabana beach and not too far from Ipanema. The food is great and the beers are priced good compared to the area but hostel needs improvement on their bathrooms. They only turn on the AC at night so the days are pretty hot in the rooms. The staff is pretty cool especially Paloma and Cecilia.

best hostel in Rio! We stayed with 20 people from with an University Trip and the staff was always nice, friendly and helpful, the hostel is clean, cheap and cosy. The position is great, in 10 minutes you are on Copacabana beach and Ipanema is just around the corner with bus or taxi.
