Stayed at Che Lagarto Ipanema for 8 nights and really loved it. Location is great, definitely stay in Ipanema over Cobacanana, the area is great. Staff really friendly, gave us all the info we needed, always someone there to speak to. Rooms also fantastic, ours had a balcony with a hanger for our clothes to dry. The lockers were big... More

The hostel has a great location with friendly and helpful staff and a good free breakfast! It is an easy walk to the beach (2 minutes at most) and close to lots of shops. We stayed in a 10 bed dorm room and I would not recommend staying a room this size as it was much, much too small and... More

I only stayed one night but the staff is so nice, the beds are confortable with lockers. The breakfast is good, they even give you a free caïpi on arrival. This is one of the best hostels i stayed in. The staff gives the best advice!

I had the best time staying at Che Lagarto for Carnival and my birthday! All the staff are wonderful and so friendly and caring, and they all made a huge fuss of my birthday which is really nice when travelling alone. As for Carnival, you can not be in a better location staying in Che Lagarto- 1 minute walk to... More

Stayed there over carnival and it was absolutely incredible. The staff were so welcoming and chatty that it created a great atmosphere where everyone bonded very quickly (I was travelling solo so this was very good). Location was incredible, a 15 min walk to the metro and a minute (at most) to the beach. Party's every night was also brilliant... More

I went there last Carnival, in February 2015, and I had a very good time. The staff is the best one that I have ever seen in a hostel. Everybody is very friendly and helps you whatever you need. I had a problem with my lock and immediately they help me to solve. The location is perfect. Very near the... More

We stayed at Che Lagarto during the whole 2015 carnaval time. We feel that we got VIP service! In the hostel and its surroundings we felt safe. It is very secured and the hostel is very clean with good atmosphere. The staff was welcoming and helpful! Special thanks to Kai, Laura, Juliana and Ricardo for doing above and beyond for... More

In October 2014 I went to Rio de Janeiro for a weekend stay. When I arrived at the hostel, my reservation had been canceled by someone of the staff. I had to search for a new place to stay while at Rio (I was turned into a homeless in Rio for a few hours). Fortunately, I found another place to... More
