My husband and I stayed here the weekend of the Olympics and absolutely loved it. We got a private room with a bathroom which worked out really well. The staff were awesome - super helpful and accommodating. They had someone making caipirinhas in the lobby area which was a nice way to kick back before going out. The hostel itself... More

After hearing rave reviews and seeing the score online I had high hopes for this hostel but was left feeling a bit flat after I checked out. On the plus side the hostel is pretty clean, the kitchen is lovely, the pool area is great and the location is fantastic. However, there didn't seem to be much of an atmosphere... More

The people that worked here were great and extremely helpful. My only issue was that the place, particularly the bathrooms were not clean. I never thought of myself as a "clean freak" and I have stayed in hostels before but I felt this was a major drawback.

Friendly, clean, and safe hostel! Great hostel, met people as soon as I arrived in the nice common areas! Went out dancing in Lapa til 5am the first night! The people I met left, and the next night I decided to stay in/didn't try to go out but I didn't see too many people around so its not crazy everynight!... More

Stayed here with a friend over the carnival period. I had lots of communication with Paloma before we arrived, she was so helpful. Some of the other staff were not so friendly and helpful. We were given a 6 bed mixed dorm near to the pool table. It seemed that our dorm was the only one with no air con,... More

Perfect place for a stay in Rio, if you want to meet new people from around the world. The location is probably one of the best one if you want to access Ipanema, Copacabana, and Lagoa quite easily. The breakfast is maybe a little bit limited, but they have nice coffee, a cat and a pool. Their communal spaces definitely... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights whilst visiting Rio. The room was comfortable, functional and the AC worked well. The rooms all seem to be close to communal areas so at times I could hear people chatting. This didn't bother me but if you would prefer silence this might not be best for you. Free Wifi is included... More

Not bad, but nothing special...windows don't close properly, so lots of mosquitoes make their way in your room...decent breakfast in nice lounge area at the back by a small pool. The only thing we weren't happy about was we were told we had the place for at least 1 more nite, but when we woke up, was told our room... More
