Really good place, close to the beach and major part of town where all the shops are. The rooms are well above a hostel standard, provide breakfast and a good air con. Staff very friendly, easy going and attentive. Highly recommend.

This place has a great atmosphere. Walking distance to Copacabana beach. Train station is 2 blocks away. Buses stop outside. Only downside was rooms are small, wifi only worked in reception and I booked the previous night to arrival as I arrived at 7am. They wouldn't let me check in until 8am. I also did the city tour which was... More

Stayed here on the 18th of September for four nights. It's close to the copacabana beach which has numerous restaurants for eating out. There are two supermarkets close by if you fancy cooking at the hostel. The kitchen is very small and can get crowded later in the evening. The dorms are very clean. We stayed in an eight bed...

Not such a great brekfast. Always book online, otherwise you will need cash to pay in there :S Bathrooms were very clean. Rooms crowded, but everything @Rio is. The matress was old, but they were renovating some rooms, The best was the people we met there! ♥

The employees are courteous, polite and helpful. The atmosphere is bohemian and fun. The Hostel location is perfect to experience the best of Rio (plus copacabana beach, pubs, branches, restaurants, etc) Value for money is very affordable.Much better than the other Hostels and Hotel nearby. For that amount of money, is worth it! You may find a dirty bathroom. But... More

Booked a <6 dorm and got a 12 person dorm. Even this dorm was overbooked and one of us had to move to another dorm at 4 a.m. Paid 80 Euro (110 USD) p.p. per night. Wi-Fi and breakfast was poor. Never again!

I stayed here for 2 nights in the week leading up to the World Cup. As you can imagine, people were flooding in from all over the world, so the entire hostel was booked. The lobby is open and inviting, the staff are friendly and helpful, and there are 3 computers available to use. Wifi was decent despite the amount... More
