Had a great stay at Books. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm which was basic but clean, with lockers and on a plus side only had two story bunk beds. Note there are only two bathrooms for the hostel. The breakfast is good and the staff are fantastic, really helpful! It's a good place to meet new people if travelling solo and is a serious party hostel.

the main problem, for me, was the bathrooms, there are only two in the second floor and one downstairs (with 2 baths and 2 toilets). the toilet wanst work well (couldnt flush even liquids). there is too many people to use 2 bathrooms and they are not good. the staffs are cool. there is no big lockers for everybody. some bunk bed (as mine) are too short (i could not seat). the breakfast is really good. the location is pretty good, really close to everything in Lapa.

Good party hostel in Lapa, close to bars and nightlife. Breakfast is the best thing about this hostel, no doubt. Good wifi and atmosphere. The hostel has a very home-y feel to it. One or two functioning locker in the room, small ones in the hall. Laid back and nice staff. good for a weekend in lapa.

All the staff is great, and it's a party every night. My biggest complain is that people are allowed to smoke in the common space that even though is technically outside, is still in the premises. Moreover, the glass ceiling sent all the cigarette smoke in my room.

Good vibes and lots of fun. You can't stay at Books without losing your voice at least once. Staff is friendly, happy hours are great!

Great staff, excellent location near tô The best pubs and bars of rio. The bar in The hostel is nice with reasonable prices and The breakfast is awesome. If you are going to rio for party, this is The right place, but you need tô be an early bird ok?
