  • Best thing about this hostel was the view. Awesome view, and friendly neighbors. But we paid quite a bit more for this hostel (which is in a Favela), than we did in our more luxurious hostels one block from Copacabana Beach. We were the only two in the entire hostel with two dogs running around and jumping all over you so there was no "atmosphere". Hallway lights didn't work, bathroom was very dirty. And the kitchen facilities were off-limit to guests.
