We stayed here for 3 nights and on the first night we arrived, the electricity was cut. We asked if we could move hostels but they refused to give us our money back so we reluctantly stayed. The mosquitoes are horrendous. The staff make no effort to help with this problem. The windows in our room wouldn't close all the... More

Cozy hostel with very happy, multinational crew located in a very good localization - 10 minutes walk from Copacabana Beach. This pleace is perfect for someone who likes meeting new people and having a party just walking few steps from the room to terrace.

The place is nice. The owner doesn't speak any english, though she was nice and kept the place locked at night...we went, so she just gave us a key to open the gate and so I felt safe staying in such a place. Overall the room was clean, basic breakfast and there's a computer you can use. The downside -... More

I needed a place to stay in Rio for few days after New Years, and chose this, because every other place was overbooked. It is located on a hill near the Rio Sul Shopping Mall in Botafogo; really close to Copacabana. I slept in a triple bunk bed in a mixed dorm room. It didn't seem very clean, but at... More

I went to Rio for a conference, I visited the site of the hostel, I paid half share of hosting, but when I arrived and saw all dirty, disorganized and broken, rushes out and went looking for another hostel to stay. Simply terrible, the house of horror.

It was a nice hostel but too much mosquitos and the dog makes noise when someone knock the door. The people from the hostel were very friendly for everything and the location is pretty good, close to Pao de Acucar and the beaches. You can walk like 3 or 4 blocks to go the Copacabana`s beaches and the main avenues.... More
