We booked this hostel for New Years and spent 5 nights here. We had a private double room which had recently been done up, it was lovely. We also had a lovely view of the ocean. There were some issues with water being turned off (but is was no fault of the hostel) but I was disappointed that they didn't...

Bad smell at the entrance and on the steps, basic room for the price we paid (double room). The area is ok, even if you are close to Favelas and I suggest you to take a bus if you would like to get to Copacabana/ipanema. The wifi didn't work for 2 days, anyway I have to come back to Rio...

I popped off in Rio for a couple of days for my birthday and stayed at the Ocean Rio Inn Hostel. It's off the beat and path of the main beaches and sits near the Vidigal Favella, but this place was very nice. The views were great for $8 USD a night. Showers were sub par and the beds not...

I spent 2 nights in this hostel during the Carnaval in March 2014. The rooms were really expensive and the hostel was disgusting and about 500 meters from a favella. Our room had a broken window, there was no lock (they forgot to make a hall in the wall to close the door), we had no pillows and no bathroom...

Terrible experience. Very dirty place (toilets blocked among other) No or pretty bad supplies (no curtain, no lockers, windows broken in the bedroom, no pillow...). Unexperienced staff. Very poor breakfast. Pictures do not reflect the reality at all. Very expensive for the value.

They are currently repairing this hostel. Even if it were remodeled I don't see how it can improve. It is filthy, hot, and it felt like I was staying in the favela. I have never sweated so much in my life. The couches have holes and are old. Chairs are broken, etc. DO NOT STAY HERE!

Stayed here for 5 nights in late November 2011. Our double room was at the back of the compound facing the sea which provided a view and nice quietude. Room was small and ensuite bathroom was really tiny. Bathroom door was slightly filmsy as it suddenly came off during our stay, but we managed to fix it back through little...

I wish I had read all the others reviews before I booked this at the last minute! First of all, it is NOT in Leblon. Our cab driver could not find it. A half block past it is an entrance to a favela, so getting lost is a problem! The entrance is one dark door, unlit. When we arrived, we...

I've been to many hostels in Rio De Janeiro and in Brazil but Ocean Inn is absolutely the worst one I've been to. Both Ocean Inn Botafogo and Ocean inn Leblon are owned by the same people. All services are extremely bad the breakfast is The Worst ( it's cookies and punch or colored water) and they even decided to...

We decided to drive to Rio because OceanInn staff assured us they had parking. When we got there they said somebody crashed their car in the driveway and we would not be able to park there, by the way parking was a 2 car dirty, no safety garage. They said they had "an agreement" with nearby Sheraton staff and we...
