I stayed there for only 2 nights but enough to have a good experience! They are located at one of the best areas of town with plenty to do. The access is good and if you don't mind walking even the subway isn't that far. The beach is also pretty close as well as good restaurants. The only con is... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in November and it is probably one of the nicer hostels I've stayed in. Stayed in a 9 bed dorm, beds were comfy and it had a balcony with a couch and hammock. The pool is a nice touch and really useful consider how hot Rio gets. It's located in a really nice area only... More

I've just stayed 5 nights here and it's ideal for the low maintenance traveller. The showers are good, storage lockers in the rooms, breakfast does a job and the pool is a nice amenity. I had an air con room which kept the mozzies away at night too. Has a very chilled atmosphere so don't expect a party every night... More

Considering that I stayed here during the world cup.. it would be a bit unfair to criticize the high price paid for a basic backpacker hostel... Rio was amazingly expensive at that time, and this was one of the most affordable places in Ipanema. Anyway: the hostel is pretty well located, 3 blocks from Ipanema Beach. The place is nice,...

I had the pleasure of staying here during my stay in Rio. First off, I knew I was staying in a nice area until the taxi driver dropped me off and I spot a Rolex and Louis Vuitton boutique across the way (not that I'm into that). But yeah, you're pretty much in the Beverly Hills of Rio. It's a... More

This hostel has a great location right around Ipanema Beach. But the rooms are more than basic, and the bathrooms are actually very dirty. So bring your "Adiletten" if you wanna walk into the shower. Also, this place is definitely directed towards very young people, It's very loud at night and people keep walking in and out of the rooms... More

Ipanema is very much the upper class part of Rio, you will feel very safe in this area. Hostel staff were friendly and the place has great facilities in respect to kitchen, pool area and space to lounge about. Recommend using the toilets and showers towards the back of the building, bathrooms in the main building are overused. The hostel... More

Certainly not as bad as previous reviews have stated. At no point did any room I stay in smell of urine and trust me, I went looking for it. The major flaw in my stay was the subhuman scum that stayed in the hostel over the same 6 nights I did. 3 Australians, head to toe in yellow onesies making... More

We booked this hostel in January fearing World Cup fever would hit Rio. When we arrived, check in was simple and straightforward. The room was ok (expensive for the standard), though the mattresses were thin and the room smelt a little from the bathroom next door. The breakfast was good and the pool was an added bonus. Most of the... More
