Really enjoyed my stay in Che Lagarto. We stayed in a private room with en suite and it was very good. €600 for 5 days seemed a bit steep when we booked but we got a good recommendation so we went for it. There was a great atmosphere in the common area and the lads working there were very helpful and great craic. If I was back in Rio I would stay here again. Safe, clean, fun hostel.

Excelente hostel, buena ubicación y Si estas buscando conocer gente, es el mejor lugar, hacen fiestas, programan salidas, tiene barra y precios razonables, las habitaciones comodas, el desayuno bueno, el staff siempre alegre y dispuesto a ayudar. Lo único es que la ducha no siempre tenía agua caliente. Pero excelente hostal

durchschnittliches hostel, Mitarbeiter waren sehr freundlich. Das Frühstück war gut. Mein erstes Bett hatte ich vor der Klimaanlage und war dadurch am nächsten Morgen erkältet. Ich hatte zum Glück die Möglichkeit das Bett zu wechseln. Wüsste nicht was gemacht worden wäre, wenn alle Betten belegt gewesen wären. Ohne Klimaanlage ist es sogar im Winter nachts schwer erträglich wegen der Hitze.

Amazing hostel!! Staff were great, super helpful, especially the manager who quickly learnt our names and made sure we were always having a good time. Rooms are a good size, and get cleaned twice a day beds are comfy, and everything is very secure.. Lots of information about what to do in the area during the day and night with different bar deals every day. One two minutes from the beach. Thank you so much for a great week! (From Lara and Josh)

We enjoyed our stay here as the location was extremely close to Ipanema beach and we felt pretty safe walking around the area in the evening. It had a good busy atmosphere and the staff were very friendly and ready to help with directions and suggestions. I would stay here again

Location close to the beach and shopping street- GREAT- but far away from the metrosystem. Nice staff, good breakfast and nice staff. The bathroom in our dormwas very dirty though, pretty much all the time..

Great location on Ipanema beach, hostel is clean and has decent facilities. Staff are also extremely friendly and helpful. Unfortunately this is one of those hostels that is split between two buildings, the common areas are also a bit scattered on different floors and the whole thing feels a bit impersonal. Despite there being many people, it was difficult at times to meet people. Not the best for atmosphere, but cheaper than other hostels in the area and it is very close to the beach.

Rick and his staff were excellent, the location is one street away from the beach front and perfect side of Ipanema. The dorm was excellent but had to change for a few days as we had a noisy neighbour. The staff were happy to help and accommodate us. The double room was a little pricey and we don't think it was worth what we paid but the dorms were great. The kitchen wasn't in the best shape and there wasn't a huge communal area but it was okay. Overall we had a really good stay.

Nice place, at a very good and central spot in Ipanema. Staff was very helpful, the hostel felt very safe, quite expensive but that is everywhere in Rio.
