I really enjoyed my time at Oztel. Cozy, comfortable and clean rooms, with wifi throughout the whole place and a very cool communal area. All of the staff were extremely helpful, friendly and speak english, and the food and drink was delicious and affordable. The staff were happy to take the time to help me plan my days and recommend...

We were so excited for our five nights in Oztel during Carnivale after three months of traveling in South America. Unfortunately, on every account Oztel was a huge disappointment. We had the rudest check in that we had experienced in 3 months in South America. On arrival, we wanted to store our bags and begin to explore Rio. They do...

Me and my partner are travelling South America and this was our first hostel. When we booked this we were told it was 3 blocks from Copacabana beach when in fact it is a taxi journey away. We were also not informed that this hostel is under a favela. They just started to do food as we were there but...

Has a great time here. Staff was friendly and very helpful. A big surprise was the room which had a view to the Christ statue (if you stay in one of the suites). The main feature here is that at the lobby there is a very trendy bar where I met cool locals as well as other travellers hanging out....

We arrived to the hostel early in the morning and found a big mess at reception (they probably had a party the night before). Although we had a hostelworld confirmation and our booking was on their screen they said the booking was not confirmed (still dont understand what that means since we never received further emails from hostelworld or the...

The neighborhood is fine, with a night market 5 minutes walk from it. The breakfast is complete and prepared by smiling staff members. People working there are kind and helped us regarding advices on things to do, itinerary, bus, and many other things. The hostel itself has a good vibe and is well decorated. You can cook easily in the...

I stayed at Oztel hostel in July for 5 nights. My first impressions of the hostel was that it was a very nice building with lovely common areas. Unfortunately the majority of the staff were not very helpful and the cleanliness could have been of a higher standard - toilet bins were not emptied on a daily basis, kitchen equipment...
