My girlfriend and I spent 5 days in the dorm here. Staff are very competent in English as well as French and Portuguese. Very friendly and helped us organise and do the things we wanted to do. Rooms very clean and air conditioned. Close to the beach. Go here! Ipanema is better!

Booked through hostel bookers, and somehow my booking got lost. So in the middle of carnival (very packed) I had no room. BUT I do have some good things to say STAFF: very very friendly, each one attempts to help to the best of their ability. Maybe more communication between day and night shift staff though. Felt like I was... More

Food and bar are great (which is important if you are in a hostel!). The rooms and bathroom in the main building are very average. The rooms in the new building across the road are a lot nicer and cleaner. The staff are very friendly here which I can commend.

I would stay for young people its the best hostel in rio. The staff are so nice and welcoming and the atmosphere is great. The location is amazing just one block from the best beach in Rio, and close to some local bars. The staff recommend activities and parties and they have a great bar at the lobby. The best... More

Yes, it does look a little bit unfurnished and cold, and it doesn't have a kitchen, which sometimes can be pretty useful but still I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Rio de Janeiro!Super great location, right next to one of the most famous beach in the world!Copacabana is history nowadays, definitely stay at IPANEMA!!The neighborhood is safe even at night...

If you´re looking for a cheap bed to rest from partying in Ipanema, then this is a good option. The beds are fine, the rooms are clean and the breakfast is good (cereal, cake, bread, fruit etc.). However, I felt really unsafe here. Anyone could walk into my room from the street as the door to the hostel was never... More
