Vibrant hostel with extremely friendly and helpful staff. The hostel has a fun, social atmosphere. It is very near to the metro which makes getting to the beaches easy, it is also a few blocks away from the Lapa nightlife. The hostel is clean and the breakfast is amazing, there are freshly baked goods on offer each morning.

very well thought through accomodations. sockets and personal light per bed were very convenient. good breakfast and very close to the metro. the only issue i would have had if i had to sleep on the third level of the bed (yes they have three floor beds) i think it quite high and scary

Nossa hospedagem foi excelente, desde a chegada até a saída. Todos os funcionários muito queridos e atenciosos. O café da manhã todos os dias estava uma delicia. Os quartos e banheiros sempre limpos e organizados. O Hostel está de parabéns pela organização.

Loved the atmosphere in this place. It is the right size, and has pleasant and attentive staff. Was incredibly well situated next to the Gloria metro station, and yet still in a safe and tranquil neighbourhood!

The perfect hostel! The owners have thought of everything to ensure this hostel stands out from the rest. When we first arrived the receptionist on duty sat down with us and gave us a detailed run through of everything to do in Rio. The beds in the dorms were so comfy and the AC meant that sleeping at night was not a problem even with the extreme Rio heat. Breakfast was delicious and the atmosphere, at least while we were there, was friendly, welcoming and relaxed!

One of the best hostels I've stayed at purely on the quality of staff and location. Jade, Hannah, Sergio and Robby and the others truly make your stay unbelievable, they really go out of their way to help you, they are all travellers so they know what you want. Right next to the metro and busses which is so handy! Only like 20 mins door to beach! Right next to nightlife! If this place has room for a pool, it would be the best hostel in the world. Small hostel with a great communal feel. Recomend

Pros : Good location & Nice staff Cons :Difficult to climb beds and the poor & late breakfast (from 8:30 to 10:30 ) Obs. You are twice as likely to have a bad sleep in a triple bunk bed than in a double one. I couldn't sleep properly in my whole stay there.

A well run hostel with a competent and knowledgeable staff. The hostel is usually full of mostly single people and there is a wonderful communal aspect to it. The proximity to public transportation is amazing and the price is reasonable.

Very much enjoyed my stay! The staff is amazing, it has a great atmosphere with lots of common space to hang out, the location is ideal-- next to nightlife, yet still a quiet place to return to. I felt spoiled because the beds are so comfy. Stay here if you want to get the most out of Rio!

O hostel é simples, mas com localização e preço muito bons. A internet não funciona bem, principalmente no segundo andar. Foram várias as vezes que a internet simplesmente não funcionava.
