Cool place with cool surfing easy going but tidy people working there, make the spot a place where to shift gears into a more easy going vacation pace. Beach all day with hikes if you like to and a cold beer to end. Going back soon for sure The owner is a cool guy as well Thanks!

A very nice place to stay , parking lot, wifi, cable tv, close to the beach , the owners treat you with extremely courtesy . A simple but very nice continental breakfast with fruits, breads, cakes , juices, coffee and other amenities. 1- Don't forget to bring your soup, toothpaste and toothbrush. 2- Too much noise at nighttime and mornings, don't know if the noise comes from other guests or employees. I recommend this hostel for your vacation!

I stayed in the private room named Reserve, which is booked directly from their website, not under HI hostel. To my surprise I found the room with a strong smoke smell and instead of being offered a replacement at no additional cost, I was offered an "upgrade" therefore required to pay more. I decided to stay in the room hoping the "thorough" cleaning could remove most of the smell. The A/C helps reduce the smell, however according to the hostel rules they are electrically active from 10pm to 8am. Another annoying issue is the presence of lots, lots, of mosquitos (aedes aegypti) . They are everywhere in the premises, inside the room, in the coffee area, by the pool, in the reception, and so on. It's true this is an issue in the whole region, but there are no provisions to minimize it with electrical traps or similar devices. Everyone is exposed to the risk, you are left on your own. I noticed there is an effort to keep the hostel nice and clean, however from my observations the way these two items alone are managed give clear signals of the limitation and preparedness of the hostel's administration to take care of guests with more responsibility on health issues.

Dear guest, When you checked in the room you reserved(Reserve Beach suite) smelled of smoke. After this was identified we immediately moved you at no cost to our best suite. At that time any trace of smoke was removed from the room you reserved. The next day you were able to return to your original room. In regards to mosquitoes, we are in a forest reserve and our Hostel is surrounded by gardens and plantswhich makes it impossible to eliminate mosquitos. Because we take extreme measures in controlling the mosquito population we have never had a reported case of dengue fever by our employees orany guests. Regards, Hostel Braz

A place to relax from Ipanema.2 kitchens,a living room and outside space to sit,read,relax,talk,eat.The dorm in which I was had 2 doors which made it slightly more open to disturbances.Since we were only 3 persons with a similar sleeping time there was no problem.Only my concern were the mosquito's because they are there when I appear.2 blankets to keep warm at night,hot functioning showers and very friendly and helpful people including the owners.
