Brilliant hostel. Obviously, could be closer to Copacabana/Ipanema, but overall I was happy to stay here. Maybe you could hold a weekly night at the hostel as well to encourage people to get to know each other. Maybe something like discount drinks/happy hour so everyone meets in the same place?

Just a realy Nice hostel with very comfortable beds, a super Nice relaxt staff, clean kitchen and the greatest atmosphere. From the hostel go left and right and you'll Find a Long street with shops like Supermarkets, fruit/vegetables, farmacies etc. Metro is a minute walk and you can go everywhere from there. Big score in everything!

Discovery hostel - Perfeição. The staff (Enrique, Will, Rafaela and co went out of their way to make my stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Enrique even loaned me his own money to go out one night when I reached my daily ATM limit - LEGEND! The hostel is a 1 minute walk from Gloria metro station, which takes around 20 Minutes to get to Ipanema beach. It's only a 5 minute walk to LAPA which is must do at the weekends. The rooms are clean and comfortable. I'll be back for sure!

After travelling in South America this hostel is a delight. Comfortable beds, great breakfast and a cool vibe with friendly and helpful staff. The location, for me, is a big plus located in the historic and charismatic part of Rio with nightlife within walking distance and the beaches of Zona Sul easily accessible by metro - the station being less than a minutes walk away. A distinct upgrade on other hostels I stayed in in Rio. Comfortable sofas a treat too.

El hostel es muy agradable, al igual que los chicos que lo atienden. Se encuentra ubicado cerca de los atractivos turisticos como Selaron, los Arcos de Lapa, etc. y a 50 mts. de la estacion de subte. Pero si solo buscas hacer playa quizas la ubicacion sea un poco alejada.

This is really amazing place !!! It is so close to the main party district and metro station is just 50 meters away. Clean , safety with good facilities. It takes only 15 minutes to go to Copacabana by tube. Most of all I liked the staff - so cool and friendly ! Thank you guys for my great stay here :)

Great hostel in a good location really close to the metro. Great social area and helpful staff. Kitchen is on the small side but is only a small hostel so it's not a big issue.

El lugar esta muy bien hubicado a una cuadra de la estación de metro de gloria. La limpieza es extraordinaria todo el tiempo la señora esta limpiando. El desayuno no es muy abundante como en otros lados pero es el mejor que hemos comido, tortas caceras, frutas frescas. Excelente!! El personal muy amable y servicial. A unas cuadras de los arcos del lapa que un sábado a la noche es lo mejor para salir un sábado a la noche. Recomendado

Best hostel in South America! I've been travelling the world for 6 months now and this tops them all. Friendly welcoming staff who provide you with a map and personal tips of the city. Large beds, although the third level beds are quite high up, that are comfortable. Clean bathroom facilities. Nice little kitchen with the best hostel breakfast in the world. Lounge and terrace area for socialising. Hostel bar serving cheap caipirinhas every day from 8-11pm brings everyone together.
