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.

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.
