I stayed in a 4 bed dorm for 1 month. Clean and fresh. 2 big bathrooms in the corridor. Everybody, staff and guests, very friendly. Lot of parties but a lot of daylight activities to do near by! Big kitchen and a great outside area to relax!

I stayed in a dorm room for 3 nights. The location is great, very close walking to the metro stop, and walking distance to lots of shopping and restaurants in the neighborhood. Felt safe walking around. The hostel was clean and well staffed. Staff and other guests were friendly, and they had events each night like pasta, drinks, dancing lessons....

We loved the brief 2 nights we stayed here. The staff are snacking and really try supper hard to help. They go out of their way to make you happy by making caipirinhas and involving everyone in stuff that's going on. There is no air con in the rooms which can get hot. The wifi was a little rubbish but...

The things I liked most about this hostel were the staff and the location. The staff were always friendly, fun, informative and quick to include people in activities.
