Great place to stay! When we arrived, it didn't seem that special at first but after a few hours we felt right at home. The girls working there, Yai and Ariana, were so nice and helpful with everything! Also very helpful was Hakan, who replaced the owner that was on holiday. He provided us with everything that we needed. The... More

I stayed here for my first visit to rio.. It accommodation is just like most hostels.. However it has a great vibe.. Its one of those hostels where everyone gets to know each other and end up partying together.. The owner Hakan is very helpful.. Especially when I woke up late for my taxi because of my massive hangover.. It... More

From the moment I made my booking the staff couldn't have been friendlier and more helpful. Chris, Saskia and Juliana are a delight, relaxed, fun and very helpful - makes a huge difference when nursing a Rio hangover. The location is superb just three blocks from Ipanema beach. The breakfast is good, but the rooms without air con can be... More

Hostel harmonia is a pretty, clean and quiet hostel in ipanema, only 5 minutes walk from the beach. Since there are only few beds, its got a very familiar vibe to it. the staff is always motivated and friendly :) Would definitely stay there again!

I have stayed in many hostels over the years, but this one has definitely been my favorite! It is located in a very safe area of Ipanema, in a cute little alleyway that is surrounded by other hostels. The property is very clean, and there are plenty of dishes and cookware if you want to make your own meals. Breakfast... More

We stayed here for a couple of weeks and could not have been happier with the hostel. Staff were lovely and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Hostel was clean and homey and in a fantastic location. Good breakfasts too. Would definitely come back.

perfect location, felt super safe the whole time and the owners really made you feel welcome and right at home. It's a small hostel with a chilled vibe. really good value especially since we stayed here just after the world cup ended so a lot of other places still had inflated prices

In my opinion the best hostel in Rio, perfect location in the lively neighborhood of Ipanema, surrounded by restaurants and bars and 5 minutes walk from Ipanema beach. Very nice atmosphere, the hostel is owned by travellers and offers everything a traveller needs: a good lounge area to socialise, international atmosphere, the staff made me feel at home and even...

We stayed here at the recommendation of a friend for a week in March. It is in a good spot in Ipanema for beaches and exploring on a budget. We stayed in a small, private first floor room and it had A/C. Very basic, dark and good for sleeping. Breakfast was plentiful and Chris the owner was great and even... More
