Nice clean peaceful hostel at the far end of ipenema beach. Great free breakfasts and only 10 min walk from the beach. This is a quiet hostel so if you want to party, prob best choosing a different hostel, but if you want a clean, friendly hostel near the beach. If recommend this one.

This hostel is cozy and well-designed, made for young travelers looking for comfort at reasonable prices. There are also private rooms w/ bathrooms! Great location, street full of restaurants and bars ( a bit noisy during the night) couple of blocks from the beach and Ipanema. Breakfast is simple but good! The only thing I did not appreciate is the... More

Close to very good restaurants but a little bit far from the beach, but still, its alright! Breakfast is good! They dont have many outlets in the bedrooms, they dont have it close to the beds and the... More

Hostels are, naturally, places with less confort, but this hostel intends to be part of a design network, so it's to be expected a little more attention to details and general instalations. Outside of the common area, which is very good and "design" style, the rest is very poor, including small beds, few showers and toilet seats for the amount... More

I was suprised and borderline hurt by the comments....Leblon Spot is my favorite place in Cidade Maravilha. In fact, I lived there on and off for a few months. Its true, that there are always drawbacks no matter where you stay, but over all its a great place. First and foremost, the location is unbeatable. Anyone who has been in... More

Leblon is fabulous - this hostel is in a great location near the best restaurants. We stayed in Annex 1 and it was fine, clean, basic, comfortable room. We stayed one night in the dorm also - it was hot. Staff very helpful and the breakfast was good.

We spent 4 nights here to go to a wedding and sightseeing before travelling around the country. Rio is seriously overpriced, so hostels cost what you would pay for a hotel. Despite that, this is a decent choice. Not a typical 'hostel'. Clean and light, nicely designed. We staying in a private double with bathroom - which is literally inside... More

It's a really good hostel if you are travelling with friends, the amenities are excellent, everything is new, but there are not a lot of people trying to make friendship, or going out, so if you go by yourself, as I did, you may not find company to go out. Oh another thing, the neighbourhood is amazing!!! close to everything... More
