So well located! 100m from metro, beach and many restaurants! Nice staff, helpful. Large breakfast with just everything you need. You can arrange a transfer from and to the airport with them for 120 RS. Wifi working in the common areas. Tips : No lift so if you have a heavy luggage, ask for a room downstairs.

We stayed here for one night in a private room with shared bathroom. Quite expensive for the amount of money you spend. Guy in reception was friendly and helpful. It's a busy place with lots of different people to chat to. Shower was cold, maybe I'm fuzzy with wanting a hot shower I don't know. Air conditioning in the private... More

We stayed in a private room at low season . Location couldn't be better and a nice vibe around the staff. Breakfast ok in comparishing to it being a hostel and not a hotel. I will definitely stay there on my next visit in Rio.

Cozy place. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very clean. The staff are friendly and always willing to help you whatever you need. Full of tips, walking distance from Ipanema beach and most of the atractions in Rio. The breakfast is great, so far the best hostel I've ever been.

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 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.
