We had a room with own suite. It was clean and comfy. The staff were very helpful and knew everything we asked about the sights and area. There is a bus station across the road for Ipanema and just 10 minute walk to other bus station. It is 10-15 minute walk to Copacabana beach and area, the walk is fairly... More

Great Place to stay. Good Value, nice friendly and helpfull staff and clean and big rooms. We did meet alot of nice people there as well, but it is more suited for the couples than the Partyseeker. Good planned activities and perfect management. I would come and stay here again any time!

Very clean, very comfortable room, good AC, good internet. Very nice and useful staff, especially, much more useful above all is Marcelo. Tha location is alright, a bit far from the beach to my opinion, but still all right. Good breakfast. The kitchen is very small what makes it annoying to cook. There is no atmosphere and it's not really... More

We stayed at Che lagarto for 6 nights over new years in a private room with bathroom. The best hostel experience I have ever had. The rooms were clean and made everyday, with soap and shampoo/conditioner provided. Great location within walking distance to the beach and restaurants and the staff were amazing. The staff were so accommodating and always willing... More

This was a brilliant experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful and I would recommend this place without reservation. A brilliant experience. Clean, well-located - thank you for taking time to show us the area and helping with any query we had.

Che Lagarto santa Clara was the first ensuite hostel! It was amazing! Always clean, Magalee and Victor made my stay! They are always helping everyone! Copacabana is the most traditional neighbourhood in town and they have absolutely everything, shops, metro, restaurants, beach only few blocks of distance! The bed...the bed was amazing, big and comfortable!
