Good hostel that could be improved easily. There are too many Brazilian long termers here with frankly quite poor hygiene and thinking they own the hostel, stays should be limited for non travelers. Cleaners should ensure all guests are using sheets on the beds, some guests were not. Location is good, near Botofogo metro. Unfortunately a macbook was stolen from one of the rooms, no locks on dorm doors. Wifi is good.The staff were friendly especially the main man on during the day. But its cheap!

The staff is friendly and explain everything we ask, the location couldn't be better. If you like parties at night, you are in the right place and if you just want to sleep at night... it's cool too.

Staff (especially Juan) were very helpful. Good chilled out hostel during the week. Friday/Saturdays were more of a party atmosphere. Location good, 2 min walk to Botafogo metro. Lots of restaurants close by. Breakfast was under par but apart from that still great value for money.

Positives: - Super Cheap Hostel for Rio and an excellent location. - Reception staff are multi-lingual, helpful and really nice. Negatives: - Breakfast... Just bring your own and take the free coffee. Nobody bothered to wake up for it. - Tour Costs. Prices are over inflated and you can do all the tours by yourself or with a group for cheaper. Eg. Football tix were 140r with private trans through hostel but you could get metro for 7.50r return and football tix for 60r and is completely safe!

This is one of the cheapest hostels in Rio... However it was very dirty and I felt like the bunk beds were going to break at any moment.

Very misleading review. Our cleaners are always keeping the hostel very organized and clean. Our bunkbeds are brand new and very secure. This type of review upsets us a lot since we are compromised to offer always an excellent service.

Excelente los recepcionistas pero lamentablemente cabe destacar la mala atención de su propietario siempre con una forma de tratar muy arrogante y soberbia, nos hizo sentir muy incomodos en varias ocaciones. Sin mencionar que el hostel estava infectado de pulgas en todas sus camas.

Excellent hostel, low key, great vibe, perfect location to get to all the tourist locations! Close to supermaket and all local stores. Safe location and friendly staff.. Recommend this hostel and would stay again anytime!

Staff were friendly, good atmosphere . However the room we had was right next to the kitchen as kept getting woken up at the crack of dawn by someone singing whilst making breakfast which wasn't ideal after a late night .

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
