It's very well located in Ipanema, between the beach and the lagoon, close to the restaurants/shopping area. Breakfast is nice, as is the pool and most of the crew. The general atmosphere was very good. The two private rooms we have tried were basic, with only beds and no stowage. Ipanema by itself is off Rio's nightlife center, but very... More

Very well located, near the beach, and not expensive at all. But these are the only good things I can say about this place. Rooms are dark and not confortable at all. Bathroom is not clean at all. Breakfast is poor, coffee is bad. But the worst thing is the the "funk carioca" the employees use to listen almost all... More

I never enjoyed my shower or toilet visits... More

I browsed some of the other comments and there seems to be a disconnect between understanding the differences in a Hostel vs a Hotel. For the first weekend during the World Cup all I was looking for was a room that didn't break the bank in a nice area, and this is what I got. It was an easy to... More

The colorful Hostel is located close to Ipanema Beach. We stayed for 3 nights. It is charming, simple, clean and affordable in price. Friendly and very helpful staff. I would not hesitate to stay another time.

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
