Very close to Lapa, but you must take a bus because it's up on a hill. Pros: breakfast is free and great. Shower works well and toilets are clean. Internet wifi goes fast. Staff is very kind. Cons: you must climb a long stair from the entrance to the hall; the kitchen is poorly equipped; they have a cat.


The hostel is in a safe area and 5 minutes walking from Lapa. It's very clean, the kitchen is ok and dorms are clean and silent at night. The only problem is that you must climb a long staircase to enter into the hostel from the street level. The staff is great and very kind. Internet is fast. The common area is big and you also have free coffee. Breakfast is pretty big and varied.


Thanks to all the team of Bossa in Rio Hostel. We have loved our stay there, and it's due mostly to your kindness and your open-mind. Thank you again and keep on listening to good music and have good DVD on the place ... We also enjoyed very much the breakfast and the caïpirinhas at happy hour... And we don't forget Tapioca : say hello to him !! Anne and Rafaël (from France)
