Good hostel to stay at right next to Ipanema beach. Nice sociable hostel without quite being a party hostel (they do have a good bar and planned nights every night though). Beds are comfy and rooms have 24hr aircon. Wifi is great everywhere. Quite Brazilian hostel but that can be fun

Great hostel and staff (especially Julianna). Just 1 block from the beach. There are bar/club events every night. If you want to see the real Rio, you may have to venture off to Lapa. Will definitely stay again!

Foi minha primeira estadia em um hostel, e curti bastante o ambiente e os funcionários, que sempre me atenderam da melhor forma. O quarto é muito bom. Definitivamente foi uma experiencia que com certeza repetirei.

We stayed 4 nights at Che Lagarto Hostel. Breakfast was ok but no cheese and ham. Cleaning service every night at 10-11pm (???) and just not enough toilets for so many people. Friendly and very helpful staff.

The hostel was in a good location. However, we were overcharged on our taxi we booked through the hostel because our flight was delayed for over an hour (out of our control) even though we had given them the details to check. The kitchen was really small for how many people stayed there and it was hard to cook because staff and cleaners would constantly be coming and going. Staff weren't particularly helpful...didn't offer us discounts for bar crawl which should have been available.

The location and staff are really the best things at the hostel. it´s literally 2 blocks away from the Ipanema beach and some steps away the Leblon shopping. There are also lockers inside the bedroom to storage your luggage. They serve a breakfast simple but good.

The hostel has a great location and staff were amazing. The only downside was that it got quite noisy on the street outside of our room. Free caipirinas in the evening were great and a fantastic way to meet others.
