The location was perfect! Few streets from the beach, safe, very close to metro station and bus stops. Hostel was constantly cleaned. The atmosphere was fun for young people. Stuff was very helpful and friendly. I had some issues with booking ( I paid for extra day by mistake) by the time I arrived home, all was sorted. The only... More

The best thing about this hostel is the communal areas; it's very easy to meet new people and make friends around the pool, at breakfast, or in the front seating area. The wifi is good but to back up photos you need to find a time when there's few people using it, and the front area is better than the... More

My husband and I stayed here the weekend of the Olympics and absolutely loved it. We got a private room with a bathroom which worked out really well. The staff were awesome - super helpful and accommodating. They had someone making caipirinhas in the lobby area which was a nice way to kick back before going out. The hostel itself... More

After hearing rave reviews and seeing the score online I had high hopes for this hostel but was left feeling a bit flat after I checked out. On the plus side the hostel is pretty clean, the kitchen is lovely, the pool area is great and the location is fantastic. However, there didn't seem to be much of an atmosphere... More

The people that worked here were great and extremely helpful. My only issue was that the place, particularly the bathrooms were not clean. I never thought of myself as a "clean freak" and I have stayed in hostels before but I felt this was a major drawback.

Friendly, clean, and safe hostel! Great hostel, met people as soon as I arrived in the nice common areas! Went out dancing in Lapa til 5am the first night! The people I met left, and the next night I decided to stay in/didn't try to go out but I didn't see too many people around so its not crazy everynight!... More
