Missed a flight, tried to shift a day of my reservation, which i made two days in advance only. They didnt show any flexibility. Will avoid this chain hostels from now on.


Great place to stay, we were really disappointed there was no hot water for the shower though.


Nice place in a good location. Only issue was that the shower was either boiling hot or freezing cold. Was impossible to control the temperature. Everything else was ok


Great location for the beach, security gates and buzzers keep you safe. The room was big and bed was comfy. Good kitchen facilities and breakfast was great. Helpful staff and good wifi.


Lovely staff who were really helpful. The location in Rio is good, but about a 10 minute walk to the beach. Our room was a bit dated, but the air con kept it nice and cool.


Our stay at Che Lagarto Suites Copocabana was excellent, we couldn't speak more highly about the staff who were all so wonderful. They were extremely helpful, made great suggestions for things to do and places to eat, they were prompt in sorting out any issues we had and just genuinely lovely people who were happy to have a chat to us. The hotel rooms were always clean and the hostel was about a 10 minute walk from the beach. We definitely recommend this hostel!

It's a great hostel with suites. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. The hostel is within walking distance to bis stops, metro, restaurants, super market and Copacanba.

Great hostel close to everything you need. Breakfast was fresh and varied. Staff were amazing with local knowledge and overall friendliness. It would be good if they had a social area to hang out though as you either have to sit in your room or in the reception area. But on the plus side it's nice & quiet so didn't get woken up by other backpackers partying.
