I am 4 hours into my weekend stay and I'm already writing this place up as the worst place that the wallpaper guide has ever recommended. It was not for us. We wanted a weekend in Rio and wanted to be close to the good food in Leblon. We did not want to be staying in a place full of drunk 20 year olds. (If you are a party going 20 year old you will LOVE this place).
The room was tiny tiny. The bed barely big enough for two. But we knew that.
We didn't know we would get crappy towels and no soap or shampoo. We didn't know that the room would feel dark and damp and dirty. And, we didn't know about the wild partying that would happen outside my door at 1am.
Ugh. I love a drink. At the pub. Not in the tiny hallway of a tiny hotel. When I called reception to ask if the partying was likely to continue, she laughed at me. Awesome. Really regretting this whole thing.
But, I blame the Wallpaper Guide entirely. It is usually spot on. But this time it was so absolutely wrong.
Are you 18-25 and like to get wasted and chat about awesome travel adventures? You will love this place.
Are you older than 25 and have grown tired of telling competing backpacker stories with douchelords? Not your place. More
