Great hostel! All the employees were extremely friendly and helpful.

Really enjoyed our stay here, the hostel was so much fun with things going on every night. It was pretty clean for being a 'party hostel' but if you have really high standards maybe this isn't the place for you! Bus stop is really close, beach round the corner and metro is about a 20min walk. Only thing was nice restaurants were quite a walk away but there are a few cheap and cheerful options near by!

Great hostel if you want to party and don't mind lots of noise, not great for relaxing. Perfect location as right next to beach. Very easy to organise tours and staff were helpful.

I booked a female room and for two nights there were also men in my room. After talking to a member of staff, nothing changed.

I would defintely recommend staying in this hostel. The hostel is in a calm location in Ipanema, and is a 2 minute walk from the beach; a great base to epxplore the city. The staff is friendly and makes you feel very welcome in Rio. Juliana helped me a out with tours and activities which was great! There are cleaningladies all day busy keeping things clean, kitchen is decent, and last but not least there are always people to hang out with. Reason to come back!

El hostel esta en una ubicación excelente y el staff es muy agradable y servicial.- como mejora tengo 3 observaciones 1- que en la pagina o en la reserva avisen que solo se abona en efectivo con antelación, 2- que las excursiones se puedan pagar con tarjeta de debito o credito (contrate varias excursiones en una agencia fuera del hostel x esta razón), 3- que el vestuario del 1 piso tenga agua caliente en la ducha.-

A party hostel next to the beach of Ipanema= good location. Good wibe in the bar, but the room we were staying in wasn't the best. It wasn't very clean and the beds were uncomfortable. Ten people shared on one bathroom (and toilet) and it was a too small area for that many people. The staff were nice and some of them were more helpful than others..

The staff and the location are the main reasons to stay here. You are two blocks from the beach and the staff speak wonderful English and are very helpful. The common area and breakfast are always crowded and a little small for how large the hostel is. It's also very loud at night so don't expect to get a good nights sleep. The dorms and lockers are spacious and it tends to be an older age group staying here 25+. Overall, I enjoyed my stay but it was loud and didn't feel like a "family".

Really cool place for meet new people, the atmosphere is really good, full of party. About the staff, except for Ricardo and other guy (Giovanni I think), I think they're more concerned about charging over being friendly and, in the in front building, there's always a mess with the key...anyway you can handle that and the location and atmosphere really worth it!
