Unfriendly staff no atmosphere, filthy beds, three bathrooms/toilets to cover the whole hostel. tripple bunks with 12 people per dorm. Mostly old suspicious looking men living there. pretty average gig. good location and price but.

I loved staying there, I just think it needs more bathroons and the airconditioning could be better.

Staff very helpful and the place is very comfortable. The breakfast was the same and without fruit.

I stayed in one of the 15 bed dorms. My linen and towel seemed quite nasty (old and stained) and the mattresses and pillows were super old and seemed dirty. I was on one of the top bunk beds (mind that there are THREE layers per bunkbed) and that was quite a hassle. The dorm was a bit warm and dank even during the night, when they turn the AC on. Lastly, a sketchy old man talking to himself (in a local accent) during the night made it even harder to sleep. Common areas and location are good tho.

Dear Marcio, Our bed linen and towels are all new and well cleaned as well as our new mattresses and pillows. Our dorms are very spacious and with fan and air conditioning. You booked a SHARED dormitory, please get used to it or book a private room with more privacy. Beach Backpackers Hostel

Good budgetary hostel with pleasant atmosphere and with a very helpful and kind staff (especially Juan and Sandra)! :) There is a big kitchen where you can easily cook meals. Supermarket is 2 mins walking distance from the hostel. The hostel is located in a safe and greeny area. Felt perfectly content of staying here! PS For the owner who might be reading this comment I´d suggest better maintenance of some rooms (wall painting, fixing closets and shelves) and buying new frying pans.

The building of this hostel is very cozy like a old house rebuild in the middle of heart of botafogo (very good place with all you need to eat, buy and enjoy walking around)!! 5 minutes walk you can take underground to go anywhere of Rio's city and just in 20 min (metro walk) you are in copacabana or ipanema ' s beach!! It's an amazing place , with wonderful staff and with unbelievable travellers who enjoy talking and meeting new people of very different nationalities! ;)
