Wow- amazing hostel (this is how it should be done)! Staff were really kind and helpful, everything was bright and clean and the air con in our room was much appreciated in the height of summer. Breakfast was really good too. It's only downside is distance from Metro but this area is great in itself and a really good location for trips to Lapa, Catege, Santa Teresa, Centro etc...(taxis are so cheap here).


Todo muy bien, el personal atento y muy cordial, esta alejado de copacabana pero nosotros ya sabíamos donde íbamos, el ambiente es ameno y la zona segura.

a computer to use is available, quiet-not a party hostel, clean and organized, the couple is very helpful, family feeling to the hostel, breakfast is good.


Staff was nice, it was clean and the common area is very comfortable. The area is safe, a fine hostel.


Muy lindo hostel ubicado en un barrio muy lindo y tranquilo. Personal siempre dispuesto a ayudarte y ofrecerte algo mas. Living muy amplio y bien ambientado. Desayuno muy completo. Un poco lejos de las playas, pero se llega en 20 minutos en bus.


Nice little Hostel in Laranjeiras. Pretty close to every important touristic attraction. Very friendly staff! Hostel has a good backpacker vibe!


From the moment I arrived the staff were nothing but friendly and helpful. The room was bright, spacious and clean. I felt really at home in the hostel and enjoyed spending time in the common area. This is a real gem of a hostel. When j left I felt like I was leaving a friend's house.


It is a very good hostel. It is quite, but they have lots of activities. We spend a very nice day in Gran Café.


Wir waren fuer 3 Naechte im Cafe Hostel in Rio und haben uns super wohl gefuehlt. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, die Zimmer und Baeder sind super sauber und es koennte schon fast als Hotel durchgehen. Das sauberste Hostel was wir je gesehen haben und dazu noch wunderschoen eingerichtet.


Lugar I-N-C-R-Í-V-E-L!! Além de uma baita atenção dos funcionários, local limpo e silencioso. Localização perfeita pra quem pretende conhecer Corcovado!! Voltarei logo!!
