Breakfast every morning which tasted good. The hostel is very clean and calm on a daily staff. I really enjoyed all the staff who work there , very good people and very helpful with anything you need to know. The location is brilliant and only 3 blocks from the beach and also very safe aswell. I'd reccomend it to anyone

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).

The uncleanest hostel I've ever seen. There are too many people at the reception (3 persons at the same time hardly doing anything), but nobody takes care of cleaning. A good breakfast. 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

We stayed here for 1 week, the location is perfect only a short walk to the beach. The staff are great especially Rene, Chris on the bar and the cook, so friendly and welcoming. 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
