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

A very nice hostel to stay and meet new people. The beach is near and the night life is all there. The location is very good and the staff is friendly and they have really good vibes. Enjoyed my stay there.

It was a cheap place to stay. However, if you are looking for a quiet place, Che Lagarto is certainly not a great choice for you. I think this place is for young people who do not care about comfort. It is a very party place.

I really enjoyed my stay here. I had just arrived in South America and needed a few days to get my bearings. This hostel was perfect for this as it's in a great area, secure and there is a friendly atmosphere. I stayed in other hostels in Rio after but I definitely preferred Che Legarto. Would recommend.

Stayed here for about a week and this is a really good hostel. The staff are really friendly and quite helpful if not a little too enthusiastic sometimes haha! They helped set up SIM cards, arrange laundry and even moved us out of a dorm room when there was a big group in ours who made sleep difficult (thanks Ricky... More

An average place in terms of a physical facility, but in a fab location. Space along Rio's Atlantic beaches is at a premium so don't expect a lot of space in the rooms. Better mechanical maintenance required in the bathrooms. Nice atmosphere. Nice pub on ground level. Reception staff can speak English. Walking distance to the beach. Very accommodative staff....
