WOW, This is a real hostel. Best hostel to meet people from all countries. Amazing staff. Parties EVERYNIGHTS !!! Thank You (especially for caipirinhas)
Nice hostel and good if you want to party. However it would be nice if you could get some sleep as well! The staff were excellent though and provide some great activities. We went to the Maracana to watch a football game. Everything was provided for the very reasonable sum off $R100. Good location also. A short walk from Copacabana and the Rio subway.
My sister and I enjoyed this hostel, fantastic location and it has a great atmosphere and friendly staff but it is a bit of a party hostel and there isn't a curfew so don't come here for tranquility.
Really nice hostel. Just one step a way from metro and two steps away from copacabana beach. The atmosphere is really relaxed. Good breakfast and nice bar (cheap drinks). The dorms were good.
I liked some parts of this hostel - it had a nice bar & atmosphere, and they put some activities on. Some things let it down though - e.g. couldn't pay on card for 2 nights on arrival, (despite what the info says - it has to be over a certain amount - i.e. 3 nights), the staff made me go get cash out. The beds weren't very clean, and smelled unpleasant. And one night the water stopped working in the whole hostel, so couldn't wash/shower/cook.
Well run large hostel. Comfy beds, helpful staff, good location and cute monkey's in the mornings. Improvements I would suggest: the mattress protectors are noisy, plastic, bit like sleeping in a 3 year olds bed, a lot of effort went into the breakfast however too many starchy carbohydrates e.g. bread, cereal, pasta, rolls more fruit would have been nice, also when full at weekend extra cleaning of toilets in evening would be of benefit.
