  • I got to the hostel and they told me that the key to the room was broken and that I had to wait for someone for some hours to fix the door. This was very unprofessional and disappointing. I was glad anyways this happened because the hostel was clearly charging more than it should since it was horrible and ugly.

  • I booked this hostel online, but ended up not staying here: the reason is this hostel is the only one available online of 7 independent hostels on the same courtyard. It's also the most expensive. So, once there, I saw the others, probably less pretty and clean but I got one for half price. I had to lose my 10% deposit paid online. So, this hostel got a 10% of my price for nothing, the other hostel an unexpected customer. Pros: great location! Cons: min 2-night stay, and no towels available!

  • In general, the hostel is fine - location is great just in the heart of Ipanemm meaning close to beach, bars and a lot of other nice things. Yet, two rather negative things are coming to my mind: 1. Asking almost double prices just because of a conference taking place in Rio at the same time is not a very cool thing - at least to my understanding. 2. There is NO breakfast neither towels included as being stated on the hostels own website. Would be great to get that WEbsite updated!

  • Looking for a basic bed in a central location very close to the best beach of Rio? Thats what you will get here. Definitely not a party hostel, not much atmosphere either, but Franklin is a nice and helpful guy who will help you get around. It was relatively clean, a bit noisy, though. Ipanema is a blast!
