First the hostel have just 2 restrooms for all the share rooms.
Second, and this is no only in this Che Lagarto, the fares seems to be as the mood of the staff, because in the same room you can find someone with a price higher o lower than you, and even in the same bedroom they first tell you one price and on the other day tell other different
Third the staff is very unpolite. The breakfast is good, but don´t take more than two pieces of bread or cake beacause one of the member staff could think that you are trying to leave food out of the hostel with you.

We booked via hostelworld.com and just before we are due to leave (bearing in mind we booked this 6 months in advance) they tell us they are charging 5 times what we agreed. If we didn't agree we loose our reservation. they don't honour their booking price or room allocation.

Stay clear!!!

I very much wanted to like Che Lagarto hostel. The location is great, the group dinners are fun and delicious, and it has a bar.
However, during our stay a girl in our hostel woke up in the middle of the night to being molested by a long-term guest who was well known and friendly with the hostel staff. When staff and management were notified about the incident, they did not ask him to leave, reasoning that he was there for just one more night. The girl of course left the hostel because she didn't feel safe. The very next night, he assaulted a different girl, and I hold Che Lagarto partially responsible for not removing a dangerous guest.

Other than safety, the hostel is very clean in the mornings, as the cleaning staff really does work hard. However, most of the hostel (except for the rooms with private bathrooms) shares two toilets with limited water pressure, meaning that they do not stay clean for long. There was a wait almost every time we went to use the bathroom. The rooms also have very bad lighting and the hostel internet was frequently down and computers only worked sporadically.

The hostel staff was very friendly and helpful, however the entire hostel in infested with millions of bed bugs. We moved to several rooms and got bitten every night. The staff knows because many people complained while we were there, but I don´t know if they plan to do anything about it.

Che Lagarto waited until we got to their hostel to tell me they didn't have a room for me anymore, after I confirmed and left a deposit over 2 months in advance. They sent me to another hostel, by cab which they did not offer to pay for, which was nowhere near Copacabana, or civilization. I was left stranded in a foreign city surrounded by people speaking a language I didn't understand, with nowhere to stay. I would NOT recommend this place!
