Originally was going to stay for 1 week but have ended up staying for 2 weeks! Love this hostel. The staff are the best and the atmosphere is one of the friendliest I've encountered in over a year of travelling. I'm on my second visit and will come back for a third. Thanks for a great stay guys!

This Hostel is very well located : in Botafogo, which is quite safe, and not far from everything. Concerning the staff, they are really nice and helpful. The atmosphere is also very nice, many people from many countries ! But I stayed only a few days and it was enough. Indeed, the rooms are very crewed, so it is very... More

We were sold "a private room with a Queen sized bed" only to find our room was a cupboard with bunk beds. The picture of the bedroom on the website DOES NOT EXIST! We were basically conned by the website into thinking the rooms may align in decor with the public areas (which were quite nice) but this isn't the... More

This hostel is as good as it gets. The prime asset is the location as it is like 10 minutes tops from the nearest metro station Botafogo, bearing the name of the neighbourhood it is serving. The atmosphere is good and the staff ready to help. Do not expect high standards though as you're in a regular hostel and paying... More

I stayed for eight days in this hostel and I had an amazing time. It has a very good location in a safe neighborhood. The staff is very friendly and informative. Before my stay I read some reviews here and they were all quite negative, but I'm really happy it didn't keep me from going. Everyone I met in the... More

This hostel offers one of the lowest prices in rio, (shared rooms from between 25-50) which is ideal for most backpackers. Its clean and the some of the staff go above and beyond to make the stay nice. The location is also pretty perfect, really close to a main subway so perfect for getting around. BUT most bunks are 3... More

Let me start of by saying that if you are short on money this place will do as it is really cheap and in a great location close to the metro. That being said, I would not recommend it to anyone who can, or is willing, to pay a little more. The area downstairs is pretty neat and they have... More

I did not have a pleasant experience at this hostel. Although the staff were mostly friendly and it is in a good location the rooms are very crowded with triple bunkbeds. This means that there is no room for anyones stuff and often a queue for the showers. As well as this the bed sheets were dirty as was the... More
