  • Hostel is situated at little height, You should have strong legs :) Police Cars are always standing on corner which gives little satisfaction. Staff was co-operative. Location was somehow Ok. If you are planning to stay there then bring your towel along otherwise they will rent you our in 5 R$ :)

  • Fantastic little hostel up in the beginning of the Favela overlooking Leme Beach (next to Copacabana). Not dangerous at all, Staff were excellent, drinks were good and cheap and the location means the beach is a mere 5 mins walk away. Great restaurants up in the Favela with views all the way to Ipanema and there is also a good (challenging) walk to the top of the hill and old fort where you can see all of Rio. Kitchen and facilities excellent. Would stay again!

  • The staff are really helpful and talkative. It's easy to find new friends and hang out with them, I know I did. But the hostel is like 10min uphill, so if you don't like climbing at all, give it a second thought.
