“Great place & incredibly friendly staff. Stay here.”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

This place recently opened and they've been making a lot of improvements. Many of the disparaging comments made have already been corrected - all new towels, furniture, paint, etc. The location is good, the staff are unbelievably friendly, there's a great breakfast provided and drinks are cheap when you need a nightcap. It is a hostel though, not a hotel, and everyone should keep that in mind. If you're looking for somewhere dead quiet at night where everyone shuffles into their rooms by 9pm, this probably isn't what you're looking for. But if you're with friends or want to meet some new people, have fun on the cheap, and get fantastic advice about what to see and do in Rio, this is absolutely what you're looking for. I'd go again in a second.

not the most convenient location for walking, but great for cabs and buses because it's right in the middle of everything in rio. the couple that runs the hostel speak english perfectly and were able to help us book affordable and memorable activities all over the city (even last minute) - seeing a fluminese soccer game, going out dancing in lapa, going hang gliding, booking an amazing boat ride with time to swim at the base of sugarloaf mountian, etc. It's like staying with a friend who is a local and knows all the best places to go. great simple breakfast was provided every morning, and coming back in the evening felt like returning home - with comfortable common areas both indoors and out.
