Hats off for this hostel!
They are truly amazing.
The breakfast wins all prices, some mornings you even get home baked cakes, as well as cereal, bread, cheese, ham, coffee, cakes, fruit, the list goes on.
They also keep pet monkeys outside the door which they feed with bananas every morning. A real Kodak Moment.
The rooms are large and you can sleep up to 30 people in one dorm, so bring a high tolerance threashold. However, I found people very respectful and quiet. The common room is also so great that people never spend much time in the rooms. Extra credit for the lockers that are provided cost free.
The most credit goes to the staff in this place though! They are friendly, helpful, energetic and keen on showing their guests a good time. They brought some of us out to a favela party one night, and also helped us finding the cheapest way to do some of the tourist attractions.
Really, I cannot say how fun it was to stay in this hostel. If you want to make friends, have a good time, sleep well and have your effects kept safe while you are in Rio, stay in this hostel!
