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.

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
