I was worried when we booked a private room with a shared bath BUT there were three bathrooms on our floor alone! It ended up never being an issue at all. The nightly air conditioning was absolutely necessary. Breakfast was delicious - the cakes/cookies and fruit were a great start to my day.

Muito bom o Hostel. Hóspedes e equipe jovem e alegre. Ambiente descontraído. Único senão é que os beliches são um pouco baixos, deixando quem está na cama de baixo um pouco desconfortável quando sentado na cama (uma pessoa de 1,80 m, bate a cabeça no estrado de cima) Fácil de estacionar na rua e próximo ao Metrô de Botafogo. Destaque especial para a moça que cuida da cozinha e da arrumação. Uma Paraibana "arretada" de campina Grande, super simpática e alegre.

Located in a safe area of rio, really near to the metro , so it was easy to get about rio to the main attractions. Helpful staff who spoke good English and could answer our numerous questions! Good quality breakfast provided.

Auberge très sympa, familiale. Le personnel est au petit soin et n'hésite pas à vous aider, vous donner des informations complémentaires sur Rio.

Close to the metro on busy streets but still quiet with comfy beds for a good night's sleep - plenty of variety at breakfast too. I had a problem understanding how the shower worked but the staff member was really helpful straightaway - I would recommend this hostel!

Um excelente hostel, muito limpo, a equipe muito atenciosa e muito bem localizado, há alguns minutos de uma das mais belas vistas do Rio de Janeiro, a Baia de Botafogo.

Viajamos em duas pessoas, em um quarto de casal com banheiro privado. O pessoal da recepção é atencioso e prestativo. O café-da-manhã é ótimo. Ao lado de uma estação do metrô, o que, em uma cidade com péssimos meios de transporte como o Rio, foi diferencial. Fica em uma rua sem saída, com segurança na entrada, ao lado de farmácia e supermercados. A limpeza do quarto deixou um pouco a desejar; sempre entravam, mas só tiravam o lixo. Para guardar malas ao sair tivemos que pagar. Recomendamos!!

Good location, good staff and good breakfast. The only problem thatt we had was when we were sleaping the people entered at bedroom and they didn´t care the noise and the people who was sleaping. The staff should be pay attention about that. For the rest everything ok.

Great place to stay. Good facilities, very clean, lots of showers and toilets so you almost never have to wait, great location (close to the metro, shopping centre, super market, etc) If you're looking for a hostel with more of a party vibe though, this isnt the place. Wifi is not great in the dorms, but that's not a big issue Otherwise, would definitely recommend

Watch out... It's a great place to stay IF you have a good room and don't have any problems. This hostel is great ONLY if you get a good room and don't have any problems that need dealing with by the staff. We had both terrible and positive experiences during our 3 night stay.

iyi hostel. tavsiye ederim, bir kaç kere zor anlar yaşadıysam da -gece döndüğümde çarşaflarımın kaldırılması gibi- şikayet etmeye değmez. oldukça güzeldi her şey ve arkadaş canlısı. konumu da oldukça güzel bir noktada.

I loved this place!! The staff there is hands down the nicest, coolest, and most helpful staff of any hostel I've stayed in. All day they happily answered a barrage of questions from the guests, about arranging city tours, tips on where to go out, or calling for a cab from the hostel. The atmosphere at the hostel is also amazing. I met so many great people and had a few great nights just partying at the hostel. It's not beach front, but very close to Botafogo metro and other tourist stuff.
