I can say I had a great stay in Rio because a met great people during my time in Carnival as well as the guys who run the hostel they are all very friendly and helpful, I feel very homey out there. I would suggest to improve the confort in the rooms. In summer is really hot out there and the fan is not enought. Also it is important to improve the restrooms, they look still old fashioned and sometimes dirty. The neighborhood is really beautiful with lot of restaurants and grocery stores.


Pros: The staff are f'n awesome!! The people who stayed there were a lot of fun! Very fast Wi-Fi! Cons: NO AIR CONDITIONING in a 111 degree Fahrenheit heat index. Sleeping was almost impossible No screens on windows -- bug bite city Super small and cramped rooms
