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.
I wouldn't go rushing back to this hostel, the bathrooms were pretty average, and there were only 3 (that I could find), the social area was quite crammed and the beds were those triple bunks. The location was good- close to the beach and a big supermarket. Breakfast was nice and staff were friendly. A good place if you want to party- but you could probably find better.
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
