My wife and I were visiting for our 10 year anniversary to Rio for the first time. We were a bit nervous to stay at a hostel, but as hotel prices were in the upper two and three hundreds( USD), we researched out options and decided to save the money and found this great place. I have stayed at hostels before and and have been dissappointed even with those located in the U.S. This place is awesome. It is worth every penny. When we first arrived, we were picked up by SCOTT, our new english speaking "tour guide." He was only there as a service to get us to and from the hostel from the airport (GIG) but ended up being a great new friend and helper. We arrived early to store our personal luggage and items for check-in which was at 1400. Alex, the current inn keeper at the time showed us around and let us change. After some more conversation with Scott, we came to an arrangement for shuttle service to and from Christo and Sugarloaf Mountain. He is and will be a great Tour guide when he is fully certified. After our visits to these great locations we then checked -in with Zion the owner. This guy is great for getting you the information and items you need to make your trip memorable. The Hostel is CLEAN and the AC is COLD which were our only two real requirements. THe location is GREAT with the Metro (subway service to CopaCabana and Ipanema, and other locations) and bus less than 2 blocks away. I cannot write enough to say how great this place is. THe only thing that would made it better was if i had booked earlier to get my and my wife a private room since it was our anniversary. WE will GO BACK AND STAY AGAIN. Thanks SCOTT and ZION and hope to see yall agian soon.
