We stayed here for a week and had a great time. There was something different on every night and you can do all kinds of tours from the hostel. The staff are very friendly and helpful...and some of them came out with us on a few of the nights. The dinner served each night was really good and cheap enough.... More

I stayed here for 5 nights with a friend. We tried to spend as little time as possible in the noisy, smelly, unfriendly, overcrowded hostel. The rooms were so overcrowded that there wasn't even space to open the lockers provided . The beds were tightly packed together and the room slept 10 although there should have been max 6 as... More

I stayed in total one week and a half. The offered transfer from the terminal worked well, but better ask for it at least one day in advance. Location is really good. In front of the Metro station. One block away from a supermarket and some blocks from Copacabana Beach. Some people thought the rooms were to small, but I... More

Breakfast with fresh fruit and juice always a bonus!. Good communal areas. Friendly and helpful staff. Lot of tours and activities which staff will help to organise. Only a 10min walk from Copacabana. Metro across the street, close to supermakets, ATMs - very central location.

The staff were brilliant! They were all super friendly and made the hostel a very welcoming place. If there were any concerns or advice needed they would be quick to help out providing very useful information. The hostel's location meant that it was very easy to go out and see the sights, and being only 4 blocks from Copacabana Beach... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks. Perfect location close to the beach and right across from the metro station. Breakfast is basic cereal, coffee/tea, bread rolls but enough to fill you up. The friendliest staff I've come across in my travels and the nightly dinners are amazing!

The staff were so friendly and helpful - even though my friend and I had to change our transfer numerous times, Nicolas was patient and didn´t mind helping at all. Lovely pineapple caiprinhas served, great food and excursions to choose from. Good wifi too. Would recommend to other travellers! Thanks!

If you don't look for party time this is not a good place, but if you do this is the perfec place! Very clean, good breakfast, but the bathrooms are too small. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is great, the neighborhood seems to be safe. The welcome caipirinha was tasty!
