Normally when you travel you need to save money and you usually cook in the hostel, but in the CheLagarto I could not find a spoon or a cup for coffee. The bathrooms are very small, when I was there was no hot water. The staff that I was a robot who told me the rules of the hostel as... More

Nice hostel on a great location (walking distance to Copacabana, walking distance to easy metro to Ipanema). The staff is great, perfect English and they 'll help on whatever you need. The rooms are small and basic but good price value quality. Book this hostel! The only annoying thing was: breakfast starts at 8:00 which is quite late if you... More

The hostel was in a perfect location, only minutes walk from Copacabana. It had very friendly and helpful staff and cool decor. The facilities were good and clean too. It had a good bar and the atmosphere of a good party hostel. It even had a really cool rooftop pool which, sadly, we did not get to sample. The things... More

We stayed at Che Lagarto for one week. There were a lot of Argentinian and Brasilian people. In general the hostel was ok and the staff was very helpful. There is no space to hang around, like a living room. There are a few tables and chairs outside, and some at the bar but its not really an area to... More

Positives: The location is perfect, close to the beach and all the other things you need. The staff speak perfect English and are extremely friendly and knowledgable. The showers are strong and hot. The breakfast isn't spectacular but it's perfectly fine. We also did a football tour through the hostel and it was really well run. Negatives: The rooms are... More

Everything about the hostel suited me well. It is definitely what you think of when you think hostel... you're not staying in a hotel, so obviously not everything is perfect. For example, one bathroom has a toilet located literally inside the area where you shower.. so I guess you can do both as once? But it is very clean and... More

A clean, organized and very cool place! People extremely friendly, the staffs are always ready to help you! Excellent localization, near Copacabana beach. Breakfast was simple, but good. The bar and the caipirinhas were amazing! It's a very good environment to enjoy with friends!

Stayed for three nights in 6 bed girls dorm - the door room was underground and stunk of damp. The bunk beds were so high you could hardly sleep on your side, and impossible to get down without waking everyone else up because it was so tricky. Air con in the room was poor and one of our lights didn't... More
