This hostel has a good breakfast and good beds, and an amazing shower. But for me it is always very important how is the people working in such places, and in this hostel they are not exactly nice. I felt all the time that I did not exist, or that I was bothering. The rest normal.


Helpful and friendly staff, it is a bit of a trial getting from the road to the top of the stairs and then to the top of the house but that is not a surprise, it is advertised in their information. It makes you feel like you have conquered Mount Everest by the time you get there! It is relatively quiet which is a nice escape in a noisy city such as Rio. Not a party hostel but they do have a bar open at night, good location in walking distance from Lapa. I really liked this hostel.


Hated the location. Would not walk home at night alone. Bums everywhere 2 minutes from the place. Dont stay here as a single female. Only good for a group going down to drink in Lapa There was no atmosphere. Very little area to meet and mingle. Wifi was not great There was never soap in the bathrooms. I also had to personally get toilet paper 2 times. The showers had mold everywhere. The beds were at least quite nice with the curtains.


Nice hostel if you are looking for a quiet place. It's clean, cozy and the staff is great. The kitchen is clean but poorly equipped. Breakfast is very big. Internet is working. Pay attention: you have to climb a long staircase to reach the hostel from its main entrance.


Excellent staff, close to Lapa, nice common room, quiet, very clean. The kitchen could be more equipped. From Lapa you must take a taxi or a bus because it's on a hill and you have to climb a long staircase.


Good breakfast


Very clean and safe hostel. Excelkent staff. It's not a party hostel, but a quiet one. Breakfast is huge. Internet works well. The kitchen is poorly equipped. There is a log stare to climb to reach the hostel. Recommended.
