This was a fantastic place to stay. Clean, friendly & helpful. Close to everything especially the beach! Met some great people at this hostel and the staff were great and also spoke english well. They organised activities for us and there was no stress at all. Would definitely recommend to any future travellers to Ipanema.

This hostel was recomended to me by a friend who had stayed there before. I couldn't be more pleased! The location is awesome (just a few blocks from Ipanema Beach), close to the best bars, clubs and restaurants in Rio de Janeiro. Staff is very friendly, helpful, the rooms and the bathrooms are very clean. They have A/C in all... More

ROOM: we booked 2 beds in a 4beds dormitory but in the end it was just the two of us (the other beds were empty) and it... More

The hostel is very well located however little pricey for what is offered. I guess is Rio so any spot is expensive. I stayed in a 4 bedroom that had exactly what I needed but disappointing as paying what you pay and they do not offer a single towel (you have to rent it) and not ever a locker (that... More

We stayed here for 6 nights at the end of June. The hostel is located in a safe neighbourhood and is only 3 blocks from the beach. However, this may be the only positive. We found the staff to be pretty unfriendly. There is a tiny kitchen big enough for 1 person to cook in at a time, and the... More

We found this hostel recommended in our travel guide - we knew that it'd be difficult to find a great and cheap place at Ipanema, so just went with this. We weren't disappointed by the location, it was great. Although we had low expectations, we were disappointed with everything else. Apart from one guy, the staff was not very helpful... More

This is a basic, but very reasonably priced, well maintained and friendly hostel, in a decent location fairly near the beach, and staffed by helpful, friendly people who speak many languages. The breakfast is pretty measly but there are some great places across the street. The private room we had was tidy, clean, fresh, airy, had air con (crucial in... More
