My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights. Our room was on the ground floor and though charming in appearance from the outside, was dark, extremely basic, and not particularly secure. The doors were shutter style and fastened with a single padlock, which could very easily had been broken through when locked. In addition, this meant that the doors... More

We booked this place for 5 nights a few months ago because we had heard that Ipanema was the safest place to stay in Rio and we liked the price point.

The hostel is in a fantastic location just in from Ipanema beach, the best beach in Rio! You can walk everywhere and there are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops in the area.

We stayed in a three bed room on the third floor. The air conditioning was good in use. Breakfast was local, fruity and delicious. Staff is nice. Sort way to Praça Gen.Osório (Feira Hippie de Ipanema) some shops and the beach. Good and low-priced stay.
