Everyone in the hostel are exceptionally helpful, but none more so than Sheila - Sheila helped us with the thousand and one questions we asked, she was so hospitable, and kind, and helped us in absolutely any way she could; booking tours, organising our bus tickets, restaurant recommendations - everything!! We can not thank/praise Sheila enough!!! Absolutely amazing hosts!

I had a great time here. The staff were great and welcoming. Sheila and Lucas were awesome in providing recommendations for activities, restaurants, and commuting. It had a laid back atmosphere which is great to have especially after a hectic, crazy day out in the city. And breakfast is provided! Facilities are awesome. And security was top-notch. Thanks for making my stay wonderful!
Top marks for this hostel, a really nice place to stay.
Excellent start for my South American backpacking trip. Lucas and the team were extremely helpful and gave excellent tips for traveling around Rio. Very cosy, clean rooms. A decent breakfast that filled throughout the day. Would recommend using this hostel to anyone visiting Rio. Tom
The worst beds ever. It's a shame as this hostel is otherwise a nice small hostel with a bar and small social area. No locks on dorm doors. Bathrooms were clean and wifi worked well. Location is ok, can walk to Sugar loaf and Botofogo beach. As this hostel charges a premium price it is not satisfactory to have such awful beds. I left to go to another hostel that was less than half the price and had much better beds.
Absolutely excellent stay. The staff were friendly and helpful, and were great company to share a beer with. Their local knowledge was fab and made our stay really easy. We stayed in a 5 bed mixed dorm, very comfy (although did have noisy mattresses), with large lockers in the room (they provide padlocks free of charge) - and it even had a nice balcony. Breakfast was basic but very good. Location perfect to see all the sights of Rio, was sad to leave! Would recommend to anyone.
It's a small place and in the mixed dorm you may have to wait for the bathroom on the first floor. The best thing about this place is the staff, who are lovely, friendly and very helpful. Close to a beach and buses. When things run out at breakfast, they readily re-stock. I will probably go back.
Great atmosphere, staff are friendly and helpful. Location is perfect for going anywhere around Rio easily plus the staff will tell you the exact buses to take. They have great suggestions. We had a great time there and honestly didn't want to leave!
One of the more expensive hostels I stayed at in Rio, but had a great atmosphere. Great shower, lockers big enough for your bag. Individual lamps and plugs by your bed. Really helpful and friendly staff. Unfortunately the Internet was broken for my stay but staff did everything to help me check my flight somehow. Only con is beds are VERY noisy every time someone moves slightly you will probably wake up
I started out staying just three nights here, but extended my stay to nine nights! This hostel and its staff are the friendliest, most helpful I have ever had!! They made it feel like home! I recommend this hostel to anyone looking to stay in Rio, for a few days to weeks. It's at a great location, close to buses and the metro, but also grocery stores and the nightlife of Botafogo and Lapa.
