I stayed at Vila Carioca in 2009 and it was amazing. The staff were awesome fun, good music was playing all the time and there were general good vibes. This time the place seemed a little tired. A few of the staff were ok, but most were not very fun. One older woman was just plain rude, refused to smile at anyone and was grouchy about everything. Good value, good breakfast, good location, wifi. Basic kitchen facilities. I know that it is better than many of the other Rio hostels.
We had a fantastic time here. Pedro and the rest of the staff are really cool, willing to help you out in any way they can and take you out to the best dirty bar in Rio! Fantastic location, so close to the beach and within easy reach of all sights and nightlife. Save us a couple of beds when we come back! xxx
Nice stay in this clean hostel. Staff very helpful. Our booked room (without private bathroom) had had problem so they gave a room with bathroom for the same price. Breakfast buffet with a lot of choice.
