I spent roughly a week here before I flew back to LA and I must say this hostel made my last week in South America memorable. The staff were very helpful and nice, especially Victor. Would definitely recommend this place because its location is amazing and it was inexpensive. They also helped me get to the airport safe and sound.... More

The hostel has a good location. Close to the metro and only 5 minutes to the beach. A supermarket is just across the street. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The breakfast is very good too. I enjoyed my stay there a lot. I recommend it to everyone that wants to meet easily new people.

This hostel has a great environment, with pretty good and very clean facilities. It's easy to get there from a Metro station and one of the best things is that it's close to Copacabana beach, just a few blocks. Breakfast is always excellent! and every night something different is going on... meals, spirits, and of course the gathering together of... More

left much to be desired due to the lack of services that were offered by the website. Although the location and atmosphere are very good, I ended up leaving the hostel with a bad impression of him because of the lack of services offered.

Good hostel; not awesome, not bad either. Staff is great (Gabriel is super helpful); young crowd & good caipirinhas but short time to get them. Could be cleaner but it's not nasty & they do clean. It's not cheap for a hostel but location is great for Copacabana. Breakfast is good; better than other hostels.

I was very satisfied with my stay here. It was a unique time and place to be there (second half of the World Cup, in the city where the final match would be played), so it was very pricey, but any accommodation would have been. I stayed for two weeks and got everything I expected from a typical low-frills hostel:... More
