Cheap and good location, reliable wifi. I stayed for one night and that was all I needed. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is very simply - pressed toast - which was nice. Bathrooms not especially clean and the shower was cold and sink clogged...

The hostel is charming; everything in warm and nice colors. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms, however, could do much better. Breakfast is really good (they're serving fresh cake every day). In addition they've got a bar with affordable prices. It is only a five minutes walk from legendary Ipanema beach. The area around the hostel is... More

This hostel is simple but relatively good in the category. Anyway, dont expect much. What is really good is the location that is in the heart of Ipanema - close to Posto 9. You can walk to Lebon ( about a 20-min walk).

This place is in a great location for when the metro station finally opens, it's just a couple of hundred metres up the road. It is nice, clean, basic and the staff are helpful. It's walking distance to the beach, it has a pool (which was only cleaned on our last day so we didn't use it) and the breakfast... More

It is a really nice hostel, with great location in Ipanema (very safe, walking distance to the best beaches and next to the restaurant area) and excellent service. Really beautiful garden inside and great atmosphere. Perfect value for money. However, keep in mind it is a hostel, therefore do not expect much from the rooms and the beds. Perfect for... More

Location, staff & decoration are great and charming. Breakfast is abundant and delicious. BUT, it's impossible to sleep at night (try sleeping during the day, much calmer). There's a rule saying no noise after 10pm, unfortunately even the staff members don't respect it (and then you see them sleep and/or relax in the patio during the day). So basically avoid... More

I was forced to stay here with the rest of my school group - we had dorm B, the one past the managers office across from the luggage storage. The room to the cleaning supplies is right next to it and smelt so strongly of chemicals I felt sick. The bed sheets were stained, moldy looking (ever heard of hot... More

The positives: nice bar area, very social, fantastic location, comfortable bed, some very friendly staff The negatives: the bathrooms need more regular cleaning, some (but definitely not all) of the staff had a very lazy sour attitude, the private rooms are expensive for what they are (especially at weekend rates) and the 11pm noise curfew was not enforced meaning that...

When you enter Bonita it has a lovely feel, relaxed and friendly vibe. The communal area where breakfast is served and the small pool are lovely, and I was very happy lounging and reading my book here. The room itself however was very small. we had a private room with shared bathroom. The bed was comfortable and the room was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Besides being Bonita our Pousada and Hostel is young, colourful, cosy, carioca and above all fun. With this in mind, we would like to offer you our beautiful 600m² house which is located in the heart of Ipanema. It has a pleasant outside area and breakfast is included in the price. The big difference with Bonita is its charm of being the former childhood residence of Tom Jobim, one of Brazils´ most famous composers and writer of the song "Girl from Ipanema". Built in 1942, the house has been fully refurbished for our guests´ comfort and is only two blocks away from Ipanema beach. ... more   less
