I stayed in Rio Hostel Ipanema from the 27th, of Sept until October the 2nd, 2013, where I slept in a private bedroom.
The bed was comfortable and the room was being cleaned every day.
I did not experience anything negative such as insects or loud hostel guests at night. The bathroom was clean. Maybe I was lucky that the other guests did not behave as swines, who knows, but I met some very friendly people, as well from the hostel as the guests. I would definitely take this hostel again if I go to Rio next time. The hostel provides you a good breakfast every morning from 8 tot 10 am (bread, fruit, coffee, tea) which I appreciated very so that I did not have to eat breakfast outside of the hostel every day.
The hostel is at a very good location in Ipanema. I experienced the location as very safe. I do advice people to learn some Portuguese sentences/words, but that applies to every country you visit. A walk to the beach from the hostel (Copa or Ipa) is not more than 15 minutes. There are a lot of cafeterias, juice bars, supermarkets and other shops nearby. The General Osorio Square is not even 10 minutes from the hostel, where you can take a bus to different areas.
In a nutshell: I can recommend this hostel
