Stayed in this hostel for NYE. The hostel is in a good location. It is in Botafogo and you can get to the main tourist attractions of the city pretty easily with the local buses. The room I stayed in was kind of small and very humid/musty. Met some great people on my trip. Probably would choose another hostel next... More

Due to the location you got various and cheap "bars/ restaurants" around. From the street you have a direct view on the statue of Christ the Redeemer. Well, the important part: The rooms are way too small. We were three and felt like living in a stable - the room was supposed to be for 4 persons!!! Mattress were horrible.... More

Good location to visit Sugar Loaf mountain. Basic rooms with internal windows, but clean and a good breakfast. Reception staff spoke English and were very helpful. Central location in Botafogo, near beach (although no swimming) and bus stops- can travel around other parts easily using buses.

Booked a room in advance, got an internet rate. Our group grew as we were travelling and we asked to change the reservation and add a second room. I suppose that caused the front desk staff to see dollar signs, as they charged us almost DOUBLE (!) the rate of the original room. Complaining didn't help much, neither did asking... More

I would definitely recommend the private room with bathroom. The shared bathroom was not as clean. Our rooms were very clean and very comfortable. It has a nice bar area which is great to utilize. We did have to pay to store our bags and use their shower after we checked out, which isn't common for a lot of hostels... More

Our double room was dirty on arrival. The toilet was full of brown water and and bin was full of used toilet paper. After speaking to a member of staff at the desk we were placed in a room with bunk beds because the cleaning staff were not around. The electric shower did not work so we had cold showers.... More

Our private room with bathroom was clean, and the location was great. It was next to the metro, which made getting to Copacabana a 15 proposition, and it was around the corner from a great churrascaria. Staff were very nice.

We very much enjoyed our stay here, the staff were very friendly, helped organise trips for us and recommended places to eat and visit. The hostel was very clean and well maintained and we felt quite safe walking around the area. There were many places to eat nearby and a good shopping centre, also the metro was close and buses...
