9 bed dorm with triple stack bunk beds and no a/c or fans. Not pleasant at all. Breakfast is super minimal and rationed out (looks nothing like the picture on here). Very average wifi.

We were locked out at night for one hour, as they had no keys for our room and when we wanted to cancel, they offered us to charge only the next two nights, but half of the price of the booked private room for the second night. about the fact that we did not enjoy rio they didnt care. the employees of the cleaning team and the bar are especially friendly. as it is a party destination, we were often woken up in the middle of the night. the aircondition of the private room did not work.

The staff at the hostel were amazing - very friendly and happy to help. The breakfast was ok, but if you were there after 9.15am (the breakfast went from 8-10) you missed out on eggs as they were all gone. The rooms were extremely hot and it was hard to sleep (the 9 bed dorm does not have aircon it only has a tiny fan on the floor that reaches 2 people not the ones on the 3 level of beds who are almost touching the roof). There were also no lockers left available in the hostel

El hostel tenia buena ubicacion y el lugar es lindo, hablando de la estructura. Pero el personal era poco amable, no se esmeraba ni un poco en hacer de tu estadia confortable. Te cobran hasta para guardar las valijas solo x 2 hs. La cocina cierra temprano. La limpieza es deficiente en las habitaciones. No hay seguridad en la entrada, cualquiera podria ingresar.

El precio pagado por la habitación privada era demasiado para lo que ofrecían. Creo que por las fechas, el personal andaba siempre ocupado y era muy difícil que satisfacieran tus pedidos. La atmosfera era buena y la ubicación tambien. Habían muchos zancudos en la habitación tambien.

Hemos pasado junto a mis amigos unas vacaciones excelente en el hostel. Principalmente por la calidad del personal, ya sea en la recepcion, limpieza, desayuno. Siempre muy buena onda y la mejor para con todos los que estabamos allí. Gracias en especial a Manuela, Lucas y Baltazar muy capos los 3 pero particulares saludos a Philipe, un chabon re copado y a Claichi, la mejor de todas!

Very expensive hostel during christmas and new year. Everywhere in Rio prices explode. Buy all in all I can recommend this hostel. The staff was friendly and helpful with all our needs. They do try to make money with you. Recommended to take a van (pick up hostel) to paraty and didnt tell us that the publoc transport is way better. Breakfast as good but it could happen that there wasnt enough... The hostel has a good young and open atmosphere to hang oit with some other hostel guests :)

This is a very nice hostel in the heart of Copacabana. Near the beach and stores and everything you need. The place is small and feels like it could use more space but the good mood makes you forget about it :) The staff is very helpful and super nice ! This is a great place to stay if you want to feel the atmosphere of Rio. Caipirinhas free every evening between 19h-20h and good vibe between the guests. We loved it !

Staff were super helpful and the all you can drink free caprinha hour was a big hit. However when I stayed was nearly empty even though it was mid December and I was the only native English speaker. Made it harder to meet people. Location was fantastic though.

1h free caipis are cool

The staff was nice and friendly but they never supervised noise volumes or insuring people to clean their mess in the chicken. The result was that we had to do it... The wifi wasn't working in the room and there was just 2 showers and 2 bathrooms for all the guests. On the other hand , location was great and the free caipirinha even better!

Very nice and helpful staff. We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom. The room was tiny and not very clean, for example there were spiderwebs close to our beds and mouse poop behind the bin. There are only two toilets and one shower for girls for quite a few rooms. The bathroom was not clean at all. Furthermore there is a lot of mold on the ceiling. The location is great, just a few blocks away from Copacabana. You have to pay extra for luggage storage.

I can't rate this hotel high enough I absolutely love this place!! My flight was delayed coming over and they moved my booking for me so I didn't lose out. Staff are friendly and helpful and always cleaning. Breakfast was good and filled you up. Location is brilliant - a few minutes to the metro and to the beach with shops and restaurants around and on the way. A big thanks to Manuela you are amazing, thank you for making my stay and my first time to Rio and Brazil excellent! You are a star!

The rooms aren't anything special, but everything is mostly clean. We were expecting a bit more of a backpacker vibe (there was a lot of Brazilians and some families) but the bar is great (unlimited free caiprinhas from 7-8). Best part of the hostel was the staff and their friends. We partied with them every night and they always hooked it up and had the best parties. Would recommend!
