This is an OK hostel in a fantastic location. It really depends on which room you get. We were in two shared rooms, one was great, the other one was a dumpster (unclean, lockers not working properly, 1 foot between your head and the ceiling on the top bunk, curtain only covering 30% of the window etc). The staff here... More

This was the 3rd che lagarto I have stayed at in Brazil and by far my favourite. The location is great for the beach only 2 blocks away. I think Ipanema is nice than copacabana so was recommended by several people to stay here. What makes the difference is that the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Che lagarto is... More

For sure, location is the great point of Che Lagarto Ipanema. In a very good location. The 6 persons dorm was very clean, the air con was working properly, but we are not able to control the temperature without a remote control, and this one was not in the dorm, only in the frontdesk (i guess). The bathroom was a... More

The location is great, 3 min from Ipanema beach. The staff is really nice. It is a party hostel, so if you don't like that, you should choose another place to stay. The tours available at the hostel are interesting, especially the city tour. The breakfast was good. Difficult to have hot water in the shower.

The two stars given were for the kitchen area and the friendly staff. Everything else was a let down. The curtains in the 8 bed dorm we were in did not cover the window so the street light was in our face. The window was very thin and had no fitting so all the street noise came straight in. I...

The instalations are not out of this world, but it is clean. The location is excellent, one block from the beach, and right in between Ipanema and Leblon. Very friendly and atentive staff, would definately recommend.

The location is very close to the beach but far from the metro, copacabana if you're thinking of walking everywhere. Dorms and bathrooms are clean. The breakfast is awesome, lots of variety. The staff are very friendly and helpful! It's a safe and basic choice in hostel.
