If you are going with friends, and mildly strapped on budget, this is the perfect place to stay in! If you do not mind the bunker beds, this is perfect. They serve a simple breakfast, and you can be on your tour around the city. Right at the heart of the city, by the lagoa, this is my pick of...

I had booked for New Years Eve and also paid 50% in advance, but then some days later I received an email from hostel saying that they were ending their activities by end of Nov.2015 !!! They also told me they give my money back, but that never happened, at least I received no proof or notification of deposit.

Very well located near Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, everyone was really kind and gentle at the hostel. You'll be quite near Copacabana, Cristo Redentor, Sugar Loath and other turistic points while beeing in a calm landscape of the lagoon.

My friend and I enjoyed our stay! The staff was very friendly, and the hostel was very clean. There was a free breakfast each morning. The area is quiet and away from many things, but the buses are easy!

We stayed at the Rioow Hostel during the group stage of the 2014 World Cup. Each day, we would walk about 40 minutes around the lagoon to get to the Leblon beach. It was a great walk, so we didn't mind too much. The hostel staff was so friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is nice - breads, cheeses, fruit, coffee, tea....
