I had a great time in Rio and the hostel seemed really nice and really friendly people worked there. The room was clean and they had a good air con. I felt very secure there, thats why I left my things in a little room (where just the staff was allowed to go in) behind the receiption, cause I wanted... More

This was a really nice hotel in a very good (& safe) area. The staff were very helpful and the room was very clean - although the bathroom is designed with no door in the private rooms (communal is available though!). Breakfast is good for what you pay. This is an extremely value for money hotel/hostel and I would recommend... More

Well located, close to some restaurants, bars and bus station. Far from the beach though, but you can easily get a bus. Breakfast is normal - bread, ham, cheese, fruits... The only point in my opinion that should improve is the cleaning of the bedrooms and bathrooms. Staff is nice. There's a kitchen where you can cook. Good place for... More

Good breakfast, great A/C in the rooms at night, nice mattress, good showers and a pretty tasty signature hamburger at the bar! But Really has to improve the place's overall cleanness and organization and a more special attention with the bunk security and steadiness .

Cosy and clean rooms, awesome staff, shared bar where you can get to know so many people without even leaving the place. Design details will call your attention all around the private and shared spaces. This is a must-stay.

Thanks to word of mouth I made a booking at the Oztel. Could give this review 1 star but the staff working there were all helpful and friendly so I'm going to give an average rating! After 12 hours flight I took a taxi from the airport (best option) and arrived at the Oztel in the morning. I couldn't check... More

Is a very good hostel comparing to other ones in Rio that are totally a crappy trap, hehehe. This one though is clean, modern and very comfortable. The staff is very nice, breakfast is good and tasty, but nothing extraordinary. However, the location: Botafogo. Is not that close to... well, pretty much anything by foot. You have to take a...

My friend and I stayed at Oztel during the Easter of 2013, at it was great! We are from São Paulo and were completely lost at "Cidade Maravilhosa", the staff were very kind explaining which buses we should take to go to places that we wanted to visit. The location is great too. It's a little bit far from the... More

Stayed here during carnival was awesome, staff friendly as and always willing to help when ever, bar at the hostel is sweet, whole hostel is tidy as, location is good as not far to beaches and short train to city. Breakfast is good but best if your up earlier than later. Highly recommended an would stay here again
