Nice location in the historical center about a five minute walk to the metro. Comfy dorm beds. Other than that, the wifi was bad and the bathrooms are some of the worst I've seen as far as cleanliness. There isn't a kitchen and the atmosphere was pretty dull. I wouldn't stay there again.

Its a cheap hostel, located in the party area of rio. The staff is great, friendly and helpful, they have a bar and common rooms. The rooms are okay, but dont have a lot of space, the mattrasses and pillows look old and the bathrooms are dirty. It was nice for 2 nights, but i wouldnt want to stay longer.

Great location in the centre of lapa, situated opposite the police station and two blocks from lapas main party Street. Staff are awesome, really friendly and helpful. Cheap drinks and free caipirinhas every night. Lots of tours and activities organised for guests.

Such a great hostel. Had such a laugh here during Rio carnival. Staff are lovely. Especially fez! Great location, 5 min walk (if that) from lappa and near metro station to access the full city. Only thing it lacked was a kitchen if you prefer to cook. But very cool hostel and would stay here again.

Overall it was a pleasant stay and loved the location 10 mins walk from Lapa, the party zone! Staff were knowledgeable of the area and gave good direction of places to visit. The downside were the toilets and showers. They were all in the same room and used by men and women. Doors had gaps in between and can get crowded especially with ladies doing their makeup face the only mirror on the floor. If you don't mind that, then you would probably enjoy your stay

Hostel has a lot of potential before I go any further. Good location and security good. Staff hardly talk english. Dorms are absolutely tiny and cramped for the amount of beds in them, showers are also an absolute joke as the cubicles are so small, toilets have see through doors in some of them, there is no kitchen.Being '3 gringos' we felt a bit of bar tension from the male bar staff, atmosphere in the bar doesn't really get going, if your not a local brazilian here your screwed.
