Stayed here for over a month and had a great experience! Staff is great and fun, very helpful and cool to hang out with. Location is great too, Babilonia is a very nice favela and much better to stay there than in busy Copa or Ipanema. Recommended!

Second time in Rio and I opted to stay in a Hostel rather than a Hotel. It was an experience I will treasure for a life time! The staff were amazing. Very welcoming and helpful staff. I had an incredible time in Rio and the people in Chill Hostel are a big part of that!! Jac

Thank you for a very pleasant stay. Great place, clean, very friendly staff will help with your every need. The location is very convenient, close to the beach with amazing view but not to close to the noise of the city.
