“Avoid like the plague!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

We booked 2 nights here as a last resort as all other hostels in the area were full, what a mistake. The place is filthy and the beds were crawling with bed bugs, my friend was bitten dozens of times and took pictures of the bed bugs, they were that big!! The staff were rude and unhelpful from the start and would only give us our money back for one nights stay. The worst place I've ever stayed!

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2011

We had a three night confirmed reservation and needed to make some changes. We had a fluent Portugese speaker (living just outside of Rio) call the hostel and confirm that we could make the changes. When we arrived(on what would have been our third night), we were informed that the manager had given away our room because he no longer felt like honoring our reservation.

The guy at the front desk did not apologize or help with a relocation. We were effectively tossed out on the pavement.

After seeing what the place looked like I'm glad we didn't stay there anyways. It was dirty and looked thoroughly run down.

Bed bugs, lots of rules and lots of what you can't do, mean cook in the kitchen and never saw her smile at anyone, breakfast cost extra (but it is a good value), not super helpful at the front desk and witnessed them giving travelers a hard time over New Years. Gouged travelers over New Years too. Much better hostels around.

Safe place. Young people from other hostels gathering on the street in the evening. Very good kilo restaurant and acai next door.
