From the moment we arrived the staff we're rude. I understand that working in a hostel environment involves giving away a lot of your energy, but greeting guests with a frown and not responding to their friendly energy is incredible off-putting. I spoke the receptionists native language and asked "Tudo bom?" which was returned with a frown. Very few smiles from the staff which only dampens the experience. Hostel location was good. Easy to find and close to airport.

Great location in Lapa, and the air conditioning at night is a dream in Rio. It's a big party hostel, just be prepared for that -sometimes the live music goes until 3am, making sleep impossible.
Helpful staff, not much of an atmosphere when we were there but might have been the timing.
El mejor hostel en el que nos hospedamos en Brasil hasta ahora. Excelente precio y excelente servicio. Muy limpio y organizado, gracias a un review anterior por el dato: fumamos marihuana a destajo! 😜
Great little hostel, although there is no kitchen. Breakfast is good, but finishes at 10am. Great location, right in the centre of Rio. Caipirinhas, caipirinhas, caipirinhas!!
The hostel is comfortable, the breakfast is very good, the location is great! I think the bathroom could be cleaner, but the rest was very good.

Central location, but far away from beaches, ok for going out at night in Lapa and visiting centre, although it may feel a bit dodgy during the day. Staff are very helpful, nice common area for socialising, but rooms a bit cramped and not the cleanest place ever. Good for a night or two.
I has a great time at Caipi, the people working here are awesome! It is a good place to meet people, a free Caipirihia every eve helps to mix the crowd. Great place to meet Brazilians, passing their WE here. It could not be closer to Lapa, the towns party district, and I walked to the domestic airport in 25 min! The metro is efficient in Rio and you will have no problem getting around to beaches and sights.
Nice hostel with good location, great caipirinhas, the guys are helpful and willing to recommend good stuff or even join the party. However, the space requires modernization. In the bathrooms I just found it a bit untidy.
