Great location - close to the metro station and Copacabana beach. Staff was AMAZING !!! Breakfast - not a lot of options but very delicious. It was clean and my room had a very comfortable double bed.


I haven't stayed in a hostel since I was at school so Che Lagarto was a real revelation for me, being more like a budget hotel than I expected. The staff were very friendly and helpful especially Taiese , Enrique and Peter (?) who were welcoming, chatty and assisted me with everything from restaurant reservations to finding a doctor when I needed one. The hostel felt secure and was cleaned each day by a great team of women. My only reservation is the Wifi is very poor upstairs.

Brilliant hostel, one of the best we have stayed in


Stayed for two nights, everything was great! Really close to Copacabana, staff was very friendly and helpful. The private room was clean and big but the door was thin so it was a bit noisy sometimes. Wifi didn't always work. But overall a very good choise for a hostel near Copacabana!


I've travelled the world, Well almost. I have to say, this is the best Hostel I have ever been in, White rooms. Not dingy. well clean. And the staff are the best, Always a smile and "What can I do for you today" I've been Brazil for 5 years, This is the best Hostel for me.. Staff makes this hosel.

Good hostel. Nice and clean. Rooms are pretty small. There is no where to put your bag so you end up stumbling over it all the time trying to get to the bathroom etc. this hostel is good for couples as it's more of a hotel. Main issues were there was a really strange smell in the room my boyfriend thought was the cleaning products used but it left the room with a musky odour that made me feel sick if the windows were closed, there is also no bar or much of a common area to relax in.


Very friendly staff who take time to explain the local area. This was such a welcoming place - thank you. Great location, really good price and completely good experience. Thanks so much for the welcome and the time you gave us.
