Good points: - location, friendly staff, breakfast, excellent local tour guide (Orlando) Bad points : - hostel organised a taxi to collect us from the airport which never showed, contacted reception on 3 occasions and were advised to continue to wait a further 10 minutes. After 2 hours we got our own taxi. The hostel receptionist was dismissive and said... More

It is just a few blok from beach, I stayed in a private room but sharing room also safe and enjoyable. Beautiful garden and nice pool, breakfast is simple but enough and clean. Generally I can say good place and you get what you pay.

Stayed three nights in late May. Our room had a balcony with hammocks and chairs which was a great place to chill and unwind at the end of the day. There are shower facilities by the pool as well as near the rooms, so didn't have to wait to use the facilities. Guests were very polite; even on nights when... More

I stayed for 3 nights and loved the place. I've previously stayed at hostels but none compare to this one. The atmosphere is great and the ambience too. Its a colourful and lively hostel great to make friends. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location is perfect. 5 min walk to Ipanema beach, 2min walk from bus stops and 10 min... More

Great hostel in an ideal location just a few blocks from Ipanema beach and one block from Ipanema's main shopping street. Hostel was reasonably priced and included a nice breakfast (ham, cheese, bread rolls, fresh fruit, juice and chocolate cake!). Staff were reasonably helpful when we made any enquiries. Various tours can be booked via reception (we did the favela... More

We also stayed in 2 other hostels in Ipanema, but this one is really the best one. We stayed here for 4 nights in a 6 dorm room and the matresses were quiet good for a hostel. Breakfast was also very nice and the staff was friendly to us. The prices of drinks are really acceptable with 5 Real for... More

The Ipanema Beach House has an excellent location. The breakfast and pool area are great, the mattresses in the bunk beds reasonable. The vibe really depends on the guest staying there. Not too much initiative from the hostel crew here. Apparently they organise Caipirinha evenings, but not during my staying. It is very nice to rend a bike and make... More

Stayed here with two friends while backpacking...lovely hostel, clean, good location, nice breakfast, helpful staff. Can't really fault much. Only issue was there was a few stains on the mattress and some staff don't speak any English. Overall would definitely recommend however.

We booked from a lonely planet recommendation and were not disappointed. Airport pick up was great, location was ideal, breakfast was really substancial ..bread, ham, cheese, tomatoes, toasting facilities, really fresh fruit, cake (!!!! Delicious!!!) And the beds were comfy too. I did have a few ants in mine...but they kept to themselves! Would definitely stay here again!

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
