Its a party I hostel, but if you also value your sleep its not the place for you. If you are booking somewhere to sleep and chill when you are having full on days exploring Rio this is not a good option. The communal area is constantly filled with passed out drunk people with constant MTV blaring out. They set... More

We stayed a few days for new years. We booked a private room. The room had a private bathroom with shower. The staff were polite and answered any questions we had. The hostel was close enough to the bus stations or subways. The mall was also within a 10 minute walking distance. The hostel had a party atmosphere, they would... More

If you are looking for a fun time in Rio look no further. I stayed her for almost two weeks and had the time of my life. The staff here are so great. They are always up for a fun night, you get to enjoy Nahuels soulful crooning on the acoustic, while sipping on Daniels delicious caiprinha, and then you... More

Like most hostels it depends on who is staying there. I met some nice people but I checked out a day early because 2nd day in a row none of the showers were working. That is unacceptable to me. As for the enterance I arrived at night and it was hard to find and has no curb appeal whatsoever. But... More

I was a little disappointed with my stay here. First, I arrived a little earlier then check in time but in their website noted that it would be okay to sit around in the common area until the bed is ready. When I first got there, it was like it was a big inconvenience and I was told to come... More

I stayed for one night. First, the location is good and safe. The hostel is close to Metro Station and you can get a bus to Sugar Loaf Mountain in the Metro Station. Second, room conditions are okay. Matress are covered with plastic and they give new sheets and cover when you check in. However, pillow is not clean. There... More

I chose this place because of the low price. The facilities reflected that, there was only one shower which occasionally did not give warm water, and the music in the common area was often loud. Anyway I am used to budget travel & enjoyed the relaxed athmosphere of this place a lot and quickly made nice connections with both the... More
