Best place ever! Not fancy at all, but is close to Copacabana beach, close to a good market, metro statio... The breakfast is good, you can have dinner for 18 reais (6 dollars) and the people who work there are really great! You should go!

The hostel is in a very quiet road next to a hospital, pretty close to the metro and the Copacabana beach and the personnel is very nice, young and willing to help; however the positive sides of this place end here. it has about 10 dorms with different sizes, all way too small...

I like the way you can meet people worldwide and brazilian people too to share at the day and night life of Rio de Janeiro. The beds are ok but not to high to be able to sit at your bed. The bathrooms are enough ok. The breakfast excellent. The dinner menu, perfect and original.
