Absolutely loved it! The staff is just fantastic and the atmosphere is amazing. Made friends 1 min after arrival. If you are a young person who loves being around people and sharing stories this is the place to be. Location is great. You have a direct bus from the airports that drops you 5 min walking distance from the hostel. Wrote a email before arrival asking for dirrections. Got an detailed answer in a very short time.


Me and my friends left the hostel immediately after we saw the dirty and smelly room. The staff was excellent, very understanding and helpful!


great experience the athmosphere is great, the breakfast was so good, the location so close to the beach and in so confortable, the price was so good for a great service.

Nice place...nice staff!!


beds are 3 tall and uncomfortable in stuffy windowless rooms. The bathrooms are always dirty. The Lockers are big, and the breakfast is great with cheese and fruit in addition to all the carbs. Kitchen is decent. Wifi is poor. Party hostel!


It's a good hostel, nice staff - friendly, speak good English, keep the place in good order etc. Wifi weak but typical of all Brazil hostels. Good breakfast included. There are lockers for your stuff and others for your valuables, so really secure, and they'll look after your luggage on the checkout day. Close to beach, metro, bus routes, shops etc. Cheap tasty dinners. Disadvantages: Dorms get stuffy, bathrooms small and few, I don't like the 3-tier bunk system, few activities.
