Good hostel. Clean and secure private rooms. Friendly staff.


Good location and great breakfast!


It's hard to believe is a hostel. We booked a private room, it had a flat screen, comfy bed and pillows and was super clean. The staff is great, kind and really helpful. We found the bathroom dirty one time and they cleaned immediately after we reported it. We got a map and instructions to take buses and metro from them. We already booked our nights in Foz de Iguazu in Che Lagarto there!

Che Lagarto is one of those places where you feel exactly how you feel at home. I can't thank the staff enough! Really clean private room and really good breakfast! I only had a little problem with the shower but they fixed it on the same day. Coming back to the hostel next time in Brazil for sure!

We'd like to thank the excellent staff at Che Lagarto, Santa Clara for making us feel so welcome. It makes such a difference when you are a long way from home. The staff were incredible; the location perfect for the beach and the hostel was extremely clean with a wonderful atmosphere. Thank you very much again to all the staff for taking time to help us and for so friendly.


kitchen space isnt massive compared to other hostels we have stayed in and they could do with a few kitchen utensils but apart from that the hostel is great and we fully reccomend it if you are staying in rio and want a little more than just a hostel but at great prices


Super staff and very good cleaners and kitchen personel.


Great place, the staff is awesome and breakfast is excellent. The beds are really confortable, the only thing is that the bathroom in my room was a bit small but always very clean! Definitely, the best way to finish my trip in South America.


Great hostel, only complaint is that in the 5 days I was there, I didn't get a single hot shower (morning, noon, or night) - a problem given it was winter.


Good Hostel if you decide to stay in a private room with comfy beds. it is located in a quiet street in Copacabana, short walk from the beach and groceries stores, bus stops or metro station. Victor at reception is always up to help you, providing information about the area and make your stay easy. Id recommend this hostel =)


Victor was super friendly and helpful, as was Magdalena. They really looked after us and made us feel at home. The room was functional, very clean and a good size. Breakfast had a variety of fruit, breads and jams. Wifi was reliable.
