I absolutely LOVE this hostel. I was supposed to stay 3 nights and by the end, I was there for 2 weeks...but could have easily stayed longer! (erm, I´ll be back in September!) Enrique, Zion, Javi, Sacha, Sebastian and the team are absolutely the best team I´ve met so far. This was my first stop in my solo trip around South America, and they made me feel so at ease, helped me make the most of Rio with a super detailed map...and even helped me plan my route for the next 6 months!
The hostel is in a great location, Gloria, so right by Lapa where all the night life is. The hostel itself is awesome! It is spacious, homely and very clean. The girls dorm was super spacious, more than enough room for all our things and a very big bathroom! And the breakfast - YUM! And you have to try the Caiprinihas made by Enrique - wow!
The vibe in the hostel is really cool. Everyone gets on, goes out together but it´s not intrusive. It´s not a party hostel, it´s just friendly, relaxed and fun. So, don´t bother staying in Ipenena, stay here. You really will not regret it!
