We stayed in a double room, small but sufficient. Nice with bathroom ensuite and a spacious balcony overlooking Rio - Santa Catarina, the cathedral, the arcs and the sea. They also have dorms in different sizes with community bathrooms. The hostel is charming and clean, with a very helpful staff. Quiet area, but close to Lapa with lots of bars and parties Thursday through Saturday. The hostel offers different tours of Rio de Janeiro, with choices between a few hours to day trips.
The only negative aspect: it is hard to get taxis to take you to the hill of Santa Catarina because of the bad roads. We almost missed our flight back home waiting for a taxi to take us to the airport.
