Awesome staff and awesome location. Really close to the beach. Very clean hostel.


This hostel is great! (if you like party hostels, music till 12) The staff is very friendly and helpfull, it felt like home. Thanks Douglas (as promised) and the rest also, you are all great! As usual (in Z-A) the beds are a bit short for european standard, and the bathrooms are what you expect from a hostel. Good breakfast, good location close to the beach, all rooms are secure and big lockers in the room. I Would definatly come back to this hostel.


great location. but the hot water didn't work when we were there so it was a bit of a letdown. plus the bottom sheets on the bed were stained and they just put clean ones over the top of them.


Amazing staff. Great atmosphere. Good location, good facilities, decent breakfast. Good facilities. Just fantastic stay. Really recommended.


always the best in rio!


The staff we're extremely helpful and always made sure everyone was having a good time. Our rooms we're cleaned 3 times a day to make sure there wasn't sand everywhere. Great location just near the beach


2 Points to Note: —This is the party hostel of Ipanema. —Don't count on the Internet working all the time. It only seems to work half of the time.
