The air conditioning did not work in both nights that I stayed. When I arrived, it took a lot of time for the staff to open me the door of the building in front of the lobby, the key did not work at first, there were no towels in the bathroom and the air conditioning did not work (it didn´t cool the room and it was kind of an issue considering it was summer).

Reception/bar area closes at midnight but it would be nice if it would stay open later.

Un hostal para jóvenes, con ambiente fiestero y un personal muy motivado. Pero los servicios dejan que desear, los baños son chicos y generalmente están sucios, habían problemas con el wifi y con el aire acondicionado en mi habitación.

Un baño para 8 personas es demasiado poco, deberian haber baños extras de uso para todos.

Good location, friendly staff. My main complaint is about the wifi and the fact that you cannot pay for your rooms with credit card unless it is under a certain amount, which makes it a bit difficult for travellers. Be aware of this before booking so you know how much cash to bring, as I had to pay a large sum to take out more than expected. Other than that, decent hostel.

Elevator always malfunctioning. Staff gave bad advice on activities. Hangliding cost more than they said. Christmas dinner was a complete joke. Toilet did not work at times. Other than that it was great!

great place for backpackers - would recommend. however watch out because some of the lockers can be opened even when locked, some people lost some money in my room.

Work taking place when I arrived so couldn't get in. Not convenient after a long flight into Rio. Apart from that the hostel everything was smooth. Great atmosphere and well mannered staff! They helped book two tours with "be a local" and they were fantastic! I had a great time.

You are paying mainly for the location here. It's 5 minute walk to Ipanema beach. The dorms are basic and cleaners come at odd times like 10pm. They are currently redecorating so I had to move rooms during my stay and it fel a bit chaotic. I imagine it will be better when it's finished.

Best Location. Just one block away from Ipanema beach. Free caipirinhas from 18.30 t0 19.00. Very good and helpful staff. They arrange everything for you when you need something. Bathrooms could be cleaner overall but that doesn't affect your stay in the Hostel because its a very nice place to have fun in Rio de Janeiro.

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
