The staff is all very friendly and the provide all the needed services in a reasonable price. Including the extra stuff like dinner, laundry, personal lockers and mixed drinks. The location is really good and the common space is nice - the rooms themselves are very basic.

This hostel is well located in Copacobana, just a 5/10 minute walk from the beach, shops and restaurants! There is also a good little supermarket across the road from the hostel. Dorms were quite cramped, but there are lockers for your bags. There was a great breakfast, lots of choice and well stocked! They do meals in the evening too,... More

Great location that's only 3 blocks away from Copacabana beach. The hostel has an overall good vibe. The staff are okay with the exception of Renzo. When checking in, Renzo helped me out and made me feel very welcome while answering all of my stupid questions. He was very accommodating and I didn't feel like just another traveler passing through;... More

I'm a very reasonable and forgiving person but this was just too much. Main concerns: - As a solo female traveller I got stuck in a room with 5 non-english speaking guys who were pretty much nocturnal. Their stuff was everywhere, including on my bed when I arrived. Not to mention the women's underwear hanging from the mirror (...classy). When... More

Nice hostel, with a cozy atmosphere and very helpful staff. My friend and I only stayed there for one night, but we both feel that we got our money worth. Not the best hostel I've ever stayed at social vice, but definitely not the worst either. I'd recommend it to a friend.
