This is a sweet place with a lovely patio for breakfast and quite a fun social scene. It's in a cool location, close to Copacabana without being in the midst of it. Care has gone into the décor. Overall a very nice place.

The hostel itself has a lot of character. I love that there is an inside and outside dining area. The rooms were very clean... More
