  • Overall, it is a good place to stay. Good Breakfast! My only comment is that the bathroom facility is unpredictable (e.g. day one no water) Erick , NYC USA

  • Fantastic staff! Very welcoming and accommodating. Great location as well. If you're looking for some amazing nightlife, look no further than Lapa. The hostel is a 2 minute walk from where the street parties take place.

  • If you are traveling to Rio only to party this is a good place. It is like a pub where you can crash - and should be advertised as such. Very noisy and wifi only works downstairs in midst of the noise. Right downtown - great for partying but not the safest part of the city. If you want to be able to relax and get a good night's sleep I would stay somewhere else. The staff and breakfast was nice and the hostel clean. Was 5x more expensive then other hostels in SA but repaid us when we moved.

  • The friendliest staff is ready to help you out to get around the city; very nice ambience when the happy hours start at the bar and many choices for a very good and healthy breakfast!

  • Only if they have an AC, charging a little extra would be fine.
