“flees and I got robbed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2010

This place was the biggest disappointment I've ever experienced - and I've stayed in some awful places around the world. The beds were old and uncomfortable, the place was infested with fleas and not only that one day I came back from a day trip and found out some of my things were missing. All they said is they weren't responsible - even though I left my bedroom LOCKED!

Stayed in Newtons back in 2003 and damn it was fun. Hope Marco, Fernando and the rest of the crew are cool. They took care of us, took us to Lapa and generally looked out for us.

I spent 3 nights at Newton's Hostel with friends and it was really fantastic for how much it cost us. The interior had a real unique character and really made our time in Rio wonderful. The staff were very helpful and personable and made you feel like you were part of their family. Newton is a fantastic character. There were several free trips organised for people at the hostel including one to Lapa to check out the night life which helped us to meet and befriend many other tourists. On the whole i loved Newton's and would recomend it to any budget traveller. I am very grateful to them for helping to make my time in Rio an authentic and unforgettable experience.
