The hostel is very well located close to the beach and many bars and restaurants in Ipanema. It's also 1 block away from the metro station. The staff is friendly and the common area is really nice with tables and benches to share. There is also a good swimming pool. I stayed in a private bedroom in the first night... More

I was a little worried that Bonita Ipanema's main draw would be the location, but it was actually a fantastic place to stay! Yes, it's got a great location, but the staff are friendly, the rooms and beds are comfortable, the place is clean, and it is spacious, unlike many other hostels I'd visited on my recent trip to Brazil/Chile....

It was a good hostel, with nice and helpful crew. The rooms are nice and clean. The bathrooms as well. A nice garden outside with pool. The kitchen was a bit unclean, and when we sat in the yard it smelled like gas leak everyday, which was a bit disturbing. But they just said it was from the neighbor building.... More

My wife and I recently stayed here for our honeymoon . Upon check in we received a very warm welcome from the receptionist and we're excited for our first night stay in Rio. The experience took a downward turn from here. We were escorted to our private room on the second floor. The entire place is very dirty and we... More

We found this place and wanted to stay so badly! It looked adorable, had a pool, had fun and colorful decor. However, when we checked in, we felt a bit differently. We paid $60 USD for a private room. I was sick with a stomach bug. The toilet would not flush. No one was available to help with the toilet... More

Pousada Bonita is cheap and in a great location (close to Ipanema beach with some nice restaurants in walking distance). Things were moderately clean and VERY simple. We stayed in one of the private rooms and it had little more than a plain, small bed in it. The bathroom consisted of an electric shower that would flood the bathroom anytime... More

Stayed here for a week, it's great budget accommodation, located really close to the Ipanema beach. Loads of great places to eat nearby and friendly staff. Wifi wasn't available in the room, but in communal areas and it was kept very clean. There's a nice communal areas and some great seating. I was offered a private taxi for pick up... More

Positive points: Breakfast was simple but really OK for a hostel, a lot of places to sit or hang outside and also on the inside, good mattresses, a pool, good atmosphere and friendly people on the reception desk especially Davi. Negative points: The wifi connection was very poor. The shower was really dirty and in the shower downstairs you had... More

We stayed in a double room with bathroom. At first I was not so pleased as the room is very small and a little stuffy. But overall the place is really cute and breakfast was good. Staff was friendly and helpful. The place is always buzzing with ppl. I would come back.
