This is, without a doubt, the worst hostel I’ve ever stayed in and I have stayed in my fair share of questionable places. It completely derailed our trip to Rio and I do not have fond memories of that week. My friend and I (both young women) stayed here a few years ago during new years. We had booked early,... More

The hostel is at the center of the Lapa party zone and over an Irish Pub. So if you're looking for party, you're in the right place. The people at the reception are friendly, helpful and speak some/good English. Unfortunately I had to interrupt my stay at the hostel after the first night (2 nights booked). The reasons are: 1)...

For backpackers and low budget travellers this is the best choice! Very nice staff, clean rooms, good price and amaIng atmosphere! Close to the bars area in lapa. Transportation to the copa cabana is easy to find by walking distance. Defenetly come back

This is probably the worst hostel I ever stayed at, worse than any cheap hostel in Asia. I booked one bed in the dorm with 8 beds in advance (full amount), I arrived late friday night and they told me there was a problem with the room and there would be only beds available at the 14 bedroom. I payed... More

- there's no hot water - very unclean everything, dust everywhere - rooms are dark and moldy - people smoke inside (even though it's forbidden by brazilian law)

No security. Thieves in the staff? Not all of them! Dirty. Cold water only. Noisy. Washrooms permanently flooded, consequently very dirty. Bad smell. Full of smokers (of narcotics included), despite the Brazilian law. ALL the chaps of the staff are smokers and narc.-smokers! It seemed nobody was in charge. Too hot during the day. Too cold during the night. Vive... More

The hostel is generally okay. We booked this during the carnival because it was among the only once left. Its pretty noisy (especially during carnival) and the management did not seem to be too organized. People were given beds that were already taken all the time - apparently i took somebody else´s bed. The rooms and bathrooms are pretty dirty... More

I booked this hostel before leaving for my trip around the world, and unfortunately now 6 months in, it is still the worst I have stayed in. Main reasons? Well... - Cold showers - Old bed sheets - It rained and the kitchen leaked - including huge bubbles in the painted walls that had to be burst - Disgusting kitchen... More

We stayed at this hostel during Carnaval in 2009. We had heard brilliant things about the hostel so were really looking forward to our week long stay. The day we arrived the hostel had been raided by theives who tied up all the guests staying there and took all their cash, IPods, cameras etc as well as the hostels computers.... More

This clearly is the best Hostel to stay at on Friday-Saturday Night. It is right in the center of the weekly street parties. Which means you have a toilet when you need one (hard to come by in Rio) It also is the only hostel in Rio de Janeiro with a built in Irish Pub (Hostel guests get in the... More
