The rooms were awful - rickety metal-framed bunk beds which creaked a lot in the night with plastic matresses and pillows. In the girls' dorm only one light bulb out of four worked so it was always very gloomy. Felt like a prison... The free breakfast was too late for me to try (started at 8.30) but apparently I wasn't... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, the only good thing is the location, but even that is not the best as the area itself is quite quiet for nightlife. To sum up the rooms, it is like being in a jail cell and im not fussy on hostels, but this was the worst of some very decent ones across Brazil.... More

Beautiful hostel, the rooms are a bit small but if you stay here be prepared for the party of a lifetime, chances are you won't get much sleep. The staff know the ins and outs of the city and are always willing to assist, the security in the hostel is excellent and the atmosphere is great and makes it really... More
