This is a very social hostel. So if you want to party or you're a single traveller, you'll never end up alone in this hostel! Location is perfect, the beach is a 5min walk away and the subway is around the corner, so is the supermarket, flip flop store and many restaurants. Having a good sleep can be difficult, because...

The staff was very friendly, served a welcome drink in the evening and allowed to use the PCs and internet even during the time when I was no longer the guest in the hostel. The hotel is very well situated (metro, beach, bus to the airport) and the bathroom the closest to the room I occupied was clean. I liked... More

Rooms were small, but I had a good time been there. Close to the beach, to the metro station and also to the night life in Copacabana area. The hostel gives morning breakfast free and it is good enough.

The sleep quality and the room is terrible, no windows, smell bad, too hot, claustrophobic, no space betwen the ceiling and the bed and dirty. Have only 2 people in the hostel there´s polite, the rest is very poorly educated. The street is very tight and during the night don´t look safe, during the day is ok.

Good location, close to the metro and the beach. Nice & helpfull staff. Good breakfast (I apreciated the fresh fruit juice and the home made pudding).There are suggestions with the activities that can be done every day (cultural, tours, parties). The minuses: the room at the ground floor, just next to the reception is quite noisy.
