My advice for anyone travelling to Rio: do NOT stay at the Art Hostel. I know I have already done a write-up but it was in Portuguese and I would like to let foreign tourists know about my terrible experience. There was no soap in the room, no water in the shower and the doorknob was broken. Breakfast very poor, despite being hailed as having "plenty of fresh fruit", and the queue snaked its way through what I assume was the dining room. No security for bags - there was a store room but no individual cupboards, meaning that in theory any hostel guest could steal a bag or two. No cupboard in the bedroom and only one coathanger. No carpet. No lift - need to climb two flights of steep stairs to get to the "dining room".
