Cool hostel, staff are Amazing - so friendly and helpful, made me feel at home, clean enough and well located - near metro stop and 2 mins from the beach. Highly recommend the El Misti two brothers mountain climb with Misti Experience!! Best views over rio and a few lovely stops in the favela for acai ice-cream and cold beer.... More

No hot water, staff are very unresponsive (only time they talk properly to you is when they are trying to sell you dinner or a tour), no AC in the hostel. Our promised taxi from the airport to the hostel did not show up, no refund/gesture was given. Location was good however (close to the beach).

Very close to the Copacabane beach. The staff is very friendly, everyone speaks English very well. The facilities (for instance the kitchen) are old and need to be... More

The breakfast is probably the best we have had in South America, especially for how cheap the rates are here. Would 100% recommend this hostel! Oh... More
