Unfortunately I stayed there only a single night but I really enjoyed the time there. You wanna see a different rio than Ipanema and Copacabana? - Go there! Its in Centro and just a 2 minute walk to the Sambadromo, around there is a lot of stuff to do - you wont be bored! The hostel is pretty nice, its a good location with a bar and a social area. The owner of the hostel is a real "rio expert", he will give you the best advices to see the real rio. I could really recommend that place.
My next stay in Rio will be definetely in that place.

We arrived in Rio with little to go on but the people at Other Side Hostel were able to show us a true and genuine experience in Rio. It was really evident that they cared about your time and interests; every night we had activities and fun things to do. When we go back to Rio we will definitely be staying at Other Side again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
New hostel, new plan: We want travelers who want to see & learn about authentic Brazilian culture, instead of just drinking & wasting days on the beach. Curious, active, open-minded globetrotters- we'll show you the Rio you hoped to find. It all starts with The Story of Samba... and it all starts right here. You cannot find a hostel with a more knowledgeable staff or better location for exploring the essence of the 'Cidade Maravilhosa'. We've made it our goal to be the alternative to the party routine... not that we don't like to go out, but we do it the Carioca way, like locals, and we balance the day with the night. If that's your thing, this is your place. ... more   less
