This hostal was the best choice for me and a friend to stay in Rio. Being only two girls John helped us a lot with all the must u have to know while you are in Rio de Janeiro (for example not wearing any jewellry or fancy bag). And he is very polite and cares about his guests, the first night we arrived he showed us the neighbourhood indicating which restaurants were good, which streets were fine to walk in, etc.
The room was very comfortable, very clean, there is a fan and air conditioner in the room ( a must in Rio). The kitchen is fully packaged with chocolates, fruit juice, butter, bread, herbal teas, milk and beer and you can get them without paying any extra.
John also helped us with getting a cab from the airport to the hostal and viceversa, and he has a lot of contacts if you want to do a tour.
The wining dog was no a problem for us, because it wasn't all the time, I mean you can slep perfectly and have your day without sounds. The dog only whines maybe twice a day and for a few minutes.
In one word it was perfect, I'd been in other hostels and this has been the greater one.
(I forgot to tell u that the beach is at 4 block app.)
