DISGUSTING HOSTEL! I have no idea why this hostel gets such good ratings. The entire place smells horrendous, and it is old and falling apart. The rooms are tiny with old rickety beds, ceilings that are too low, and air conditioners that smell like they are on fire. Most of the lockers are broken and unusable. The bathrooms are inconsistent, often with showers over the toilet, leaving everything dirty and muddy. Things falling from the ceiling everywhere. Good location otherwise.

Ich war mit einem Freund zum Karneval in diesem Hostel. Wie auch fast alle anderen Hostel haben sieben Preis mehr als verdreifacht. War zwar nicht begeistert, ist aber verständlich. Frühstück war gut. Zimmer, zumindest meines, war zu klein für drei Hochbetten. Hostel war nicht so sauber. Mitarbeiter haben uns immer geholfen. Nett waren sie auch. Lage ist gut. Hostel liegt direkt neben einem Fitnessstudio (Crossfit), nah am Strand, Bahn in der Nähe. Empfehlenswert. 4 von 5 Sternen. Tarik

It was a good location to copacabana beach and organized some good tours. The staff were great and helpful. The problem was the air conditioning in lots of the rooms didn't work. Luckily after the first night we got moved to another room. The mood of the hostel isn't that good because everything shuts down after 10. Also the kitchen is to l small to cook with more than a couple people, and if you don't put name & date of check out they will throw it out. Staff need to say this on check in

No water when I turned on the shower tap. I went to another hostel to take a shower and came back very late. So scared and uncomfortable.

El PEOR hostel que fui en mi vida!!!!. Estuve 7 dias ahi y 6 dias NO TUVIMOS AGUA en TODO el dia, los baños super sucios, la cocina tambien, los cuartos dejan mucho que desear. Al no haber algo basico como agua en todo el establecimiento, el hostel en vez de solucionar el problema, paga taxis para ducharte en el otro hostel ubicado a 15/20 cuadras d ahi. La verdad que NO lo recomiendo!!! Y es importante saber que entraron ladrones a las 4am y el hostel no absorbio los daños ocacionados. Un ASCO!

O local é muito bem localizado, a 3 quadras da praia e a 2 quadras do metrô. O grande problema foi a falta de água em pelo menos 3 dias consecutivos da nossa estadia. Primeiramente nos disseram que era um problema da rua, depois era um problema com a bomba d'água... enfim, não justifica um hostel lotado com mais de 100 camas passando por isso. E quando a água voltou, não havia água quente.

Cero seguridad, entra cualquiera. Estabamos durmiendo y entraron a asaltar el hostel con armas, camaras de seguridad apagadas.

Hello I had to cancel my stay at your hostel che lagarto in copacabana on the 17th and 18th of january 2016 due to an unexpected report of flight in Sao Paulo. Since I was not responsable for not being able to cancel my reservation on time (more than 72h before) I would be really gratefull if you could provide me a refund of the amout I have been spending without staying. I've also called your hostel and sent emails to cancel as soon as I could, so please consider my demand. Thks for answering.

La verdad que no tuve la mejor experiencia en este hostel pero quizás tuvo que ver con la época del año en la que fui.Mucho grupos d argentinos/as sin consideracion del otro ( entrar a los gritos mientras dormia.)..otra noche hubo un robo y llamaron a la policia quienes intervinieron violentamente con armas. Apartentemente fue la única vez que ocurrio.el gerente nos pidio disculpas y nos devolvio esa noche.el desayuno y los cuartos la verdad son muy buenos! Lockers enormes y muy limpio.,

Very social hostel with super friendly staff and good location! Would recommend to anyone from solo travellers to bigger groups. Definitely staying here again. The rooms were clean and had a lot of space.

Senti falta de tomada ao lado da cama. Também os chuveiros eram muito frios. Na primeira noite não consegui dormir quase nada pois havia muito barulho e movimentação no quarto (isso e uma questão de desrespeito dos hóspedes) até fumaram dentro do quarto.... Nunca havia passado por situação tão desagradável.

We came to Rio to celebrate New Year's and my 30th B'day so two special occasions. From the minute we arrived we were greeted with the most friendly, positive and enthusiastic staff from memory (Carol, Igor and another guy who's name was hard to pronounce but he was amazing!). This hostel is great for ages 18-35 I would say and has a great fun atmosphere along with a short walk to Copa beach but still quite enough to get some rest when needed. We wished we had stayed here the whole time in Rio!

La ubicación excelente pero las habitaciones dejaban mucho que desear, muy pequeñas con una ventana más pequeña aún que daba al pasillo. No vale la pena alquilar con baño privado porque es diminuto e imposible de usar si hay gente en la habitación. Terminas usando los públicos. El WiFi sólo llega a la recepción, lo cual hace que estén todos apretados en ese espacio. En cuánto al ambiente parecía la "casa de gran hermano". A medida que pasaban los días el desayuno se empobrecía cada vez más.
