We stayed in a private room with a shared bathroom. The location was great - just a few blocks from the Copacabana beach and not too far (about 25 mins walk) from Ipanema beach. The staff were super helpful and were able to assist us with local transport options and recommendations for restaurants. The shared bathrooms were not cleaned frequently... 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).
