Cozy hostel, with nice atmosphere. It's close to the Subway Station and busy commercial sector. There are some places in the area for a beer and to play pool at night. It is a worth value, the breakfast could be better though.

This hostel is very close to the Botafogo Metro which we used multiple times each day. It is conveniently located in a quiet street and seemed to be pretty safe. However it has minimal signage, we had to go by the numbers in the street. We had a private double room and shared bathroom. Women's showers had good pressure. Men's... More

Fantastic! I loved staying there. I found new friends and they have free caipirinhas from 9 to 9.15pm. It was very nice to talk to new friends and to make new ones. The neighborhood is safety and you can find everything you want at the drugstores, supermarkets and shopping malls.

MICHELLE MADE THIS HOSTEL FUN AND THE BEST! Great service since day 1 from all people, and fantastic info for excursions to do in the city. Free Caipi's at 9:00 - 9:15 with the wifi switched off which forces everyone to be social! Nice chill place during the day, metro station nearby, great location, great people, great hostel!!!

I stayed in this hostel some nights during my visit in Rio de Janeiro. The hostel is awesome, the staff is very helpful and friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the prices are ok and the location in Bogafogo is perfect. Also for some reasons they spend a lot of free Caipirinhas :-D

This was our first stop in South America and we were glad we stayed here. You get a free drink at 9pm each day which is a great chance to get chatting to everyone! The staff were super helpful and friendly.

Stayed here for a week over carnival and the atmosphere was loose, the staff were good fun and can't complain about anything. The location made it easy to get around and very close to the subway. Good time and would recommend
