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.
