I really enjoyed my stay there. Staff was super friendly, I had some problems with my stolen credit card and the let me use their phone, a lot of toilets and bathrooms, always toilet paper, not like other hostels. Great breakfast and super close to beach, bus station and metro, wifi works everywhere really quick, comfy beds. I def. go back to this hostel in a few weeks.

Overall, ok, good value for $ Shared bathrooms were kept relatively clean, but, they are a bit old. Overall I felt a bit cramped in the hostel because there are very narrow stairways leading to dorm rooms that are a bit cramped and not much space for anything else, lockers under beds enable you to store your backpack, but if not for those, there would be no floor space in the room. Also the rooms were a bit stuffy because they are quite small with a lot of beds, even a 4 bed dorm.

Nice place with good atmosphere. Breakfast is very good on weekends but in weekdays it is not that good. Location is pretty good as it is near everything but it is a very noisy street. good place if you dont mind that. Great place to meet new people.

Had high hopes for this place when we booked however thankfully we only booked for the first few nights of our trip in Rio & we were lucky enough to be able to book in somewhere else which really emphasised that we weren't getting our bang for the buck in Che Lagarto. Location for Copacabana beach is fabulous however this place lacks the happy vibes of this Marvelous City. P.S yards away from a street with VERY heavy traffic which (unless you're into that sort of noise pollution) is a buzz kill

Pay way too much for what you get, staff are friendly but won't go out of there way to help, facilities pretty poor showers awful hardly ever hot, key to the door never works no comfortable common area to sit.
