O hostel tem bom staff e fica bem localizado em Copa.A única coisa que me deixou irritado foi quererem cobrar 10 reais pelo uso do Wi-Fi.Wi-Fi não é luxo, é necessidade básica entre viajantes que precisam manter contato com amigos e fazer pesquisas de passeio, principalmente entre os estrangeiros, que muitas vezes ficam sem celular por aqui.

A localização é ótima, lugar muito seguro perto do batalhao de policia e os funcionários são muito gentis. vale a pena se hospedar lá.

Upon arrival we were given a card that we were supposed to show to all places we went to. This was of course only meant to be used as commercial. This guy in staff was dishonest and said it would give us like discounts. The others were nice! -Poor bed with rubber under sheets. -Dirty bathroom. -Air condition only from 10pm-10am. Only one remote, in reception. -Noisy environment during night. Had to ask other guests to keep it down at 5am Israelic flag and clock in lobby.. Enough said.

Não senti um clima de albergue na minha estadia, o lugar tinha mais cara de pensão.

Bonne auberge de jeunesse, bien située, calme, personnel très acceuillant. Seuls points noirs, les chambres qui laissent un peu à désirer. Elles sont petites avec une petite ouverture sur un couloir. Autre chose, la propreté. La femme de ménage est débordée, dites vous bien que tout n'est pas clean. Mais sinon vous pouvez passer un très bon séjour.

Filthy room with no window, which caused a mildew on the wall and a funky smell that would not go away. Besides that, the room did not appear to be cleaned, even when this service was requested. The walls were so thin you could hear everything that went on in the hostel, in the other rooms, in the lounge and, of course, the buzzer that would go off at all hours of the night. A deposit was requested for the linen and towels, which was not returned until demanded. Wifi was charged to top it all.

Demasiado sucio, huele mal, es muy pequeño, los recepcionistas "tratan" de ser amigables, pero realmente no dan una buena atención, tardan demasiado en atenderte !! El desayuno es malo y pobre!! En pocas palabras, muy mal hostel !!

Nous avons changé d'hôtel après la première nuit : pas de fenêtre, pas de chaise, place juste pour le lit, air conditionné déficient, ventilateur trop bruyant, pas de possibilité d'allumer la lampe de chevet, linges de bain sales ....la catastrophe !

Un lugar deprimente.


26%

Muy apretado, chico y descuidado. la habitacion tiene el baño adentro y eso es muy molesto p los que estan durmiendo. las camas son cuchetas triples y la cama de arriba de todo esta muy cerca del techo, me chocaba la cabeza constantemente y fue muy incomodo colocar la ropa de cama. La mayoria de los brasileros NO CONOCE la calle valadao, ni siquiera el chofer de la van q nos llevo hasta el lugar. si bien no es lejos de la playa (5 cuadras) de noche es muy desolado. Es muy sucio y sin ventilacion

The staff (particularly Gabriel) were all extremely helpful and friendly, they really are so nice. The hostel itself is very small and the rooms are very cramped and the air con didn't work and all there was instead was a very noisy fan so it made sleeping difficult. The neighbourhood around the hostel is quite poor but generally it is safe enough. The front door is always staffed which is good for piece of mind. I'd recommend this hostel for a night or two but nothing longer as it is very basic

BestRio is a hostel that has as main advantage its location. 3 Blocks away from Copacabana Beach, right next to Siqueira Campos Metro Station. You can also go by foot to cheap restaurants and snack bars, supermarkets and a 24hrs cash ATM. As a negative point, there's its size; very small, really 'tight' and almost no 'socialization areas'; mainly, the only usage of the hostel realy is to sleep. The breakfast is also very week (food tastes weird). I hope I wwas helpful ;)

Suítes sem janela:p. Absoluta falta de segurança no caso de incêndio, por exemplo. Quarto e banheiro nunca são limpos. Café da manhã sempre igual e com poucas opções.Cama eram vários colchões empilhados. No quarto só há cama e mais nada.
