Hostel muito bom, preço bom, staff gente boa, café da manha bacana muito digno e localização excelente. Só as tomadas nos quartos que podia ter uma pra cada cama ai ia ficar top. Voltarei mais vezes.

O hostel é muito bom! Super bem localizado e com um atendimento ótimo. Todos bem-humorados e prontos para ajudar. Tive um pequeno problema com o quarto que caí. A beliche superior, onde fiquei, era MUITO próxima ao teto, o que fazia ser um canto muito apertado, super difícil de subir e descer e o ar quente que sobe naturalmente + ar condicionado muito longe da cama não ajudavam. Fora este importuno (sugestão: colocar apenas camas nestes quartos de baixo - a beliche é muito desconfortável), foi10

Lacks personal touch, especially the parties they promote. No towel rental. But only a couple of blocks from the beach and big lockers under the bed were great!

Ótimo hostel, local limpo, agradável, funcionários atenciosos, muito simpáticos, confortável, me hospedaria novamente com certeza. Só uma única coisa me incomodou, o café da manhã com pouca variedade. Em outros hostel da mesma rede o café é melhor. Mas está de nota 10!

Ótimo custo-benefício! Atendimento excelente, ambiente animado e agradável! Recomendo! Para ficar ainda melhor, poderia aumentar a frequência da limpeza dos banheiros e também disponibilizar mais tomadas.

I really enjoyed my stay at Che lagarto, the staff are so friendly and helpful, the breakie was nice, the rooms are simple and clean. Although there is a bar it's very quiet at night. Good location, close to the beach and super easy to catch buses to all the main attractions. Only downs are the toilet/showers are old and in need of redoing but no worries and there's no laundry facilities.

This hostel has a good location in Copacabana and is clean. The wifi can be hit or miss, and the hostel is quite popular with other South Americans, so if you don't speak Spanish the atmosphere might miss something.

Big hostel franchise with no caracter feels a little bit like the McDonalds of hostels. They cramped way too many people into the small rooms.the kitchen has the size of a 2 Bed apartment, not even a filtered water tab for guests. The rooms have one electricity plug for 12 people. The staff is not authorized to handle any complains as managers are rarely there. Internet very bad. One positive is the location, then also depending on which room you are staying it can be noisy. Enjoy your stay :)

El hostel muy bien!! El personal le falta un poco mas de cercanía con la gente en los otros che (Ipanema, buzios), el personal es más cercano y por ende mas amable!! A pesar de eso, 100% recomendable experiencia

Tiene un buen ambiente, bien juvenil y con hartas ganas de fiestear. El problema es que las piezas son demasiado chicas y nuestro aire en la pieza estaba malo por lo que dormimos bastante mal. Fuimos solo una noche por lo que no me atrevo a decir nada mas. El staff muy bueno.

We booked in a 6 bed dorm for 8 days during Carnival for €900. Lost extra €80 on scam exchange rate the hostel operate but were put in a 4 bed which made up for it. A lot of our opinions are due to sheer volumes of people. Internet never worked, b/rooms could be cleaner. Breakfast was very good but remove the stupid tables&chairs which clutter lobby. Great atmosphere but staff could be more organised with taking groups of people to Blocos. Difficult task but lacked organisation. Perfect location

CheLagarto was amazing during Carnival! I highly recommend staying here. You may pay a little more money than other hostels but it is worth it if you have the money. During Carnival all prices go up anyway. The staff was amazing, they are so helpful and fun. The atmosphere here was so lively. You won't go wrong choosing this hostel. 😊
