Hostel itself was nice, really clean and comfy. Showers were really weak and either scolding hot or freezing so couldn’t use them properly but the location made up for it. 5 minute walk to the beach… however what really let the hostel down was the noise. From drunken guests I can only assume but not impressed with the hostel not even attempting to do anything about it. There are big signs plastered around the reception saying how there is a ‘noise law’ and charges will be made if there is noise after 10pm. But on a Sunday night when guests were blasting music through a speaker and screaming drunk till 2am or when guests came in drunk at 6am and sat outside smoking and drinking (right underneath our bedroom) the hostel just did not care. Really let our experience down.
We were there for 10 days and we felt like home. The stuff was extremely helpful and kind with us. Great location, 5minutes walking from Copacabana, in a very safe neighborhood. The rooftop is tropical beautiful, and the energy is amazing.
Really comfy beds and great atmosphere !! Loved staying here and the breakfast was really good! Plus there is a really nice roof top where you can chill and have breakfast with monkeys :) will deffo stay here again
We stayed here for four nights and were in the four and six bed dorms. What they could improve are curtains in the upper beds in the six bed dorm. Furthermore, the bathroom in the doorm was not cleaned. Otherwise we enjoyed it a lot. They have hot showers, comfy beds, a bar in the hostel and a laundry service.
Nice and cozy hostel with a great and helpful staff. Good and diverse crowd Very good rooms with comfortable beds and lockers. The breakfast is really nice, worth the cost Nice view and great rooftop and few minutes walk to the beach
This is the third hostel that I have tried during my visit to Rio de Janeiro, so far my favorite. The building is always clean; bathrooms, rooms, rooftop, living room, mini kitchen, and halls. The air conditioning is always (day and night)on unless you want it to be turned off. It is located in a really quiet area. Also, the hostel is really close to many restaurants, subway station, beach, hospitals, and touristic places. I really recommend this hostel to anyone who is coming to Rio.
A very clean hostel, good vibes, very friendly stuff, great air conditioner in the room! There is always hot water in the shower and 24hs security! I stayed for a few nights with my friends and really liked it!! Close to the beach, and supermarket and the Metro.
I stayed for 2 nights and don't have any complains. The bed was comfortable, the shower was good, the staff was really nice. Breakfast was really good too. I'd recommend it for sure and probably will stay there on my next trip to Rio.
I stayed at this hostel for 6 nights over Carnival. Firstly the positives: The hostel has an unbeatable location near to the Metro Station, restaurants and beach. Couldn’t have asked for better! The staff are very friendly and always happy to help with recommendations and queries. Breakfast is great for a hostel standard. Before I go ahead with the negatives points from my experience, I completely understand that this is just based on my own personal opinion and everybody’s views are very different. Me and my friend we booked into a shared dorm with 4 other females. The main struggle me and my friend had was the significant lack of space. To the point that even passing each other was a challenge. It just felt that the hostel had cramped as many beds as possible into a room not adequate in size. Our sheets/towel were not changed once - maybe this is normal in a hostel? The smell of damp was over powering in all places throughout the hostel. Again, maybe something difficult to keep on top of in Brazil. We also had to present our bed sheets to the reception upon check out, which we found a little strange. Cleanliness is okay, not particularly great though. All in all I had a great time in Rio. I would have perhaps explored other options to see if I could have got better value for money. Or maybe I am just past my hostel days!…
Good hostel with some nice staff members. Variety at breakfast - really nice terrace that you eat breakfast on - you may even see some monkeys! The dorm rooms are a bit of a squeeze, so hard for the room to stay tidy/organised. It would be nice to have linens changed more frequently during the hot season, and towers would be appreciated too, esp during carnival (lots of showers required!)
