Spent here 6 nights in December 2014. 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.

The location is great being only a couple blocks away from Copacabana. The staff didn't make much on an impression, but did their job well. The best thing about this hostel was the breakfast, being one of the better breakfasts I had while backpacking South America. The worst was my room. It was a dark room on the basement with... More
