  • Ubication is good. 10-min walk from Copacabana. Hostel is located at the bottom of a hill, 155 steps everyday to get to our room and no elevator, a nightmare, really! Staff was friendly, nothing to say against them. Bathrooms and Kitchens were really dirty. Staff did their best, but lack of cleanliness was mainly because of guests customs, as I could see. Noisy at night because of guests, but I understand it was Carnival time. Unfortunately, I wouldn´t recommend this hostel to anybody.

  • Nice location. Loved the monkeys and the breakfast was good too. Enjoyed my stay. Only criticism was that there was a lot of dust and food scraps under the bed looked liked it hand't been vacuumed in a long time. Also saw guys cleaning up around the place, so was surprised that nobody bothered to empty the rubbish bin in the men's toilets that was overflowing with toilet paper over the two nights of my stay (Surely that would be a bigger priority than sweeping the leaves off the steps?). Thanks

  • В целом неплохо для хостела. Стандартный двухместный номер был маленьким и не очень чистым, душным и с неприятным запахом. Постельное белье лучше брать свое (нас это спасло), полотенец нет. Общий душ и туалет нормальные, но из 3-х душевых кабин с горячей водой только одна. Хороший завтрак. Во время завтрака можно общаться с маленькими обезьянками. Это пожалуй самое приятное. Хорошее расположение. Везде камеры наблюдения. На время карнавала цены слишком высоки. За эти деньги можно снять отель.

  • More facilities in the room should be given. Rooms were suffocating. Also, location was inside and too many stairs to climb. Common bathrooms were given, whereas while booking online it was mentioned that individual bathrooms for individual room will be there. Breakfast was Ok, not as per expectation. View was good but location was bad. In short expectations were more for this hotel.

  • They need to improve to much on cleanliness. Toilets were so dirty. On the other hand, facilities for the kitchen still poor for the whole hostel. Should be useful to find things clean and in the right place as you expected to use. To expensive according to the lack of service.
