Care about spotlessly clean toilets and silent rooms? Stay in a hotel. Mellow Yellow is all about a safe location 5 mins from CopaCobana and a chilled/party atmosphere where everyone says hello to each other in the bar and the staff party harder than all the guests combined. You have the eccentricity of Hugh, a big name on the Rio hostel circuit and the sassy banter of Line, the ghetto, Tek 9 loving Ayla and the brazillian Juliana...well she has a great rack. The bar always has at least a few partiers in it and the drinks are cheap enough to pre lash on, no need to buy your own booze.
The owners 'debates' with the staff are jokes and it's a bit like living in a soap opera. Hot Dog breakfast is free and a great hangover cure. The TV room is great to chill out in.
Things I would change, sell crisps / snacks in the bar cos those capis are strong and you need something to hide the taste. And get a few more power sockets from somewhere.
We like it enought to return and stayed there 7 nights in total.
