The main reason for choosing this hostel is the excellent location.
It is just 2 blocks away from Copacabana beach, a 5-min walk to the metro station, and close to a few supermarkets.
There is no signage at all at the entrance to the hostel (see attached photo), so you will have to ask around to know exactly which doorbell to press ! Do read the long list of terms and conditions during the check-in, as they are pretty strict about checking out before 12pm or you will pay extra. During check-in, they will give you a set of bedsheets, pillow case and blankets, as you will have to put them on yourself.
The complimentary breakfast is really basic, and come in really small portions, so guests have to fight over the food all the time as they run it very quickly.
The dorms are generally standard, with backpack-size lockers provided, but you have to bring your own padlocks. In case you do not have one, they also sell them for 10 reals at the reception. Towels are available for rent at 5 reals.
I will recommend this hostel only for its central location.
