I travelled to Rio in October 2013. This hostel is one of the best that I have ever stayed at. It is located a few blocks from Copacabana Beach. One of the best features of this hostel is its patio/balcony facing Rua Barata Ribeiro . It is a great hangout spot which gives one the opportunity to observe the busy... More

Cheap bar with helpful staff at the desk who know their way around rio. Rooms had large lockers and comfortable beds for a hostel. The room and toilet/shower area was always clean and the breakfast was always good with fruit and bread with spreads. Great location on copacabana with access to all areas of the city via bus and close... More

The hostel was dirty (we had a room with bad smell and shared with cucarachas). The air conditioning was noisy and the crew just don't seem to care. It is not far from the beaches, what is good, but you will have to walk a little bit...

It's not as if I haven't been staying in hostels for many of my travels, or haven't slept in a dorm. I just expect a bit more. The smaller/private rooms are probably ok, but the 12-bed dorm set-up is atrocious. The a/c did not work at all, which could be fine if there were a fan, but it was sweltering... More

We loved this hostel. It's friendly and very well located in Copacabana, few blocks away from the famous sidewalk. Great staff working there. Farly good breakfast too. Reasonable price, cheap I'd say. I would definitely go back.

Close to subway, 3 blocks from the beach. Easily get into centro or ipanema. Hostel was very clean and was cleaned often throughout the day. Most of the mess is from backpackers who can't cleanup after themselves! Mummy's not here to do it for them! Very secure with access card locks on doors, 24hr security guard, lockers etc Pretty good... More

Very confined space for so many guests. Kitchen tiny and not enough facilities. No safes in the rooms and had to use lockers on other floors than the one your room was on. Very noisy. No space to sit inside at breakfast. Boy dominated.

I stayed at this hostel for 6 nights in May in the 12 bed dorm, and I had a really good time. My bed was comfortable and the dorm was clean.
