Dont choose this hostel for the 'free airport pickup' like I did, I booked the required 4 nights, emailed to arrange and heard nothing. Then when I wanted to go to the airport I was told its only if youre arriving. So false advertising! Other than that, you get tiny lockers for valuables, the lockers in dorm didnt fit my padlock and they didnt want to lend me one. The reception staff and very friendly and the breakfast is amazing. My dorm wasnt cleaned during my 4 nights stay, and the bathrooms
Definitely would stay there if i go to Rio, the mood its amazing. You dont stop partying and having stuff to do, and its close to the main road of Copacabana
Never been to a worse hostel.

Nothing special. They seem messy but are friendly. Good location but wasn't so so clean in the bathrooms. Maybe because I arrived after Carnaval.
staff: unfriendly, arrogant, unprofessional, chaotic place: dirty, tiny, expensive breakfast, dinner, drinks: good Big thanks to Hugo who made the stay bearable!
Great location in Rio. Very accommodating staff. Space in Rio, granted, is at a premium, however, I though the bathroom on 2nd floor was too small. Would stay here again except for during inflated price periods such as during Carnival and New Year's.
Great atmosphere:) Roberto was amazing, really helpful and always with smile on his face . Free walking tour to Fawela with Luis was one of the best tours I have been on. I recommend this hostel to anybody who is traveling alone, good place to met people.
Great hostel! Great staff, great location, great breakfast (the juices they serve are delicious!). The atmosphere is great, very fun hostel, and it's very easy to meet new people.
Our stay was ruined by Sofia, whom failed to arrange our airport pickup upon arrival and departure as requested. When we arrived, Sofia was working the desk and asked if we would wait 5 minutes to be checked in because her shift was almost over and her relief would take over in a few minutes... The next morning she promised she would have our transport to the airport at 1730, to no surprise at 1730 there was nothing arranged. Last night in brazil was ruined by one individual.
Wifi was pretty slow get up early to get breakfast some staff are really good
