Overall this place was great for me and my mates. The staff were like family, they would cook us great dinners on offer and then after they would come out partying with us. Their local knowledge was second to none. The only downside was sharing a room with 18 people but it was easily manageable

Excellent location in Copacabana, superb homemade food, and great caipirinhas! But above all, what makes this hostel great is the staff. Everyone has a great disposition to help and is really friendly. Thank you Vicky, Germán, and everyone else for showing us a great time. I will definitely come back!
