Located right beside the metro and within walking distance of the beach. Rooms are basic but clean with good shower and toilet facilities. Continental style breakfast included in the price and you can help yourself to as much as you want. Very nice outside area with pool and bar, and zack makes an excellent calphrinias! The staff are friendly and... More

The location, staff and breakfast are nice. However quite noisy, room really small, wifi only in the reception area. We went during the carnival, so we expected high rates, but here they were a bit abusive when you compare to the quality of the place.

The best hostel I've been to. It has a great atmosphere, with an outdoor relaxation area and pool, nice bar and good breakfast. The location is great. One block from the metro, 2 blocks from the beach. I met a lot of cool people here.

The hostel have a good location and good breakfast. The metro station is just across the street, it is near the beach . I went with my baby who was 8 months and had a good time in my suite. The staff are friendly and it is a great hostel to spend a weekend.

Its very close to Ipanema beach. A good and very fresh breakfast. An amazing vibe around the place during the nights. You can make a lot of great friends there. Many nice restaurants and pubs around. I do strongly recommend this place!

Bonita is one of my favorite hostels in Rio. The hostel is very cute, nice breakfast and the best of all, the location. You can pretty much anywhere in Rio using the public transportation (subway/buss) that departures one block away from there, can come by special bus from GIG/SDU airports, the beach area close from there is really nice (despite...

Myself and my wife booked a private room in this hostel for three nights. The accommodation is basic enough but the staff and the vibe are nice. Location is really good for the beach. The hostel and surrounding area feel really safe.

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
