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

Very nice hostel with superfriendly atmosphere! Perfect location in Ipanema, close to the beach, shops, bars and restaurants. Clean, modern bathrooms upstairs, small outside terrace and a delicious breakfast with fresh fruits etc. I have stayed several times in this hostel during my trip to Rio and everytime when i came back it felt like homecoming!

Location was good, walking distance to restaurants and the beach. Lockers downstairs were handy to leave your valuables in. We were there December 2013, it was hot in the rooms and not the most comfortable to try and sleep. Top bunk beds were difficult to get up and down from during the night, the steps were quite far apart so... More

I stayed at this beautiful place for Carnaval 2014. Chris the owner was truly the reason my stay went so well. Being that I am from New Jersey he felt the tension I had from the ridiculously busy life where I live. He would explain to me the Brazilian culture and how they looked at life which has changed me... More

Finding a place to stay in Rio is all about balancing how much you want to spend with what neighborhood you want to stay in. Ipanema being one of the most expensive areas or Rio, finding reasonably priced accommodations can be very difficult. This makes Hostel Harmonia ideal. It is only three blocks away from Ipanema beach, one of the... More

This hostel was quite good, but not incredible. We stayed in a double private room, share bathroom for $75 Australian a night. The wifi is very good but only available in common areas, air-conditioning worked well in the bedroom - no windows so lacks fresh air. Breakfast is great, served from 9-11am which includes fresh bread, ham, cheese and fresh... More

Hawakai, Owner at Hostel Harmonia, responded to this review

We would just like to clarify some points made in this very informative and good review. WiFi works in all parts of the house except the room they stayed in. Unfortunately we have found no good way to make the signal get there, it is located behind two thick walls. The low pressure in the showers, that can only mean... More
