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.

Great place to stay in Rio de Janeiro. Close to the subway station. Friendly staff.

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.

A decent hostel that fits a hell of a lot of people. Big dorms carry with them their own pros and cons and that's just a personal thing, you know it'll be like that when you book. Decent location in a quiet, safe little street. There is a lot of information available at the front desk and the football table is great. There is a great buzz in the hostel and it's very easy to meet great people.

Location wise not too bad as right next to Botafogo metro so easy to get around everywhere, but Botafogo isn't the greatest part of Rio. It is a very cramped in the dorms, they've squeezed as many beds in as they can and not too many toilets/ showers for everyone to use. The staff were friendly enough, but couldn't give a great insight on what to do on nights out etc so you were very much left to go somewhere and hope it was good.

We really enjoyed our 4 day stay during the World Cup. The staff we encountered were all uber friendly and helped us with suggestions on how best to get around and places to eat at etc. breakfast was fantastic more than expected Tiny areas for improvement: - Add in extra shelves or hooks in the wash room. There is literally no place other than the toilet lid to put stuff when having a shower. - Same with the bed room - more hooks on the wall so that we could hang damp towels/bathers etc.
