I stayed here for 3 nights but Im sure I will be back at some point in this trip. Staff helped me a lot organizing my trip around Brazil and Rio de Janeiro, they sorted out my transfers to Ilha Grande, they recommended me street markets, parties, bars with live music, beaches and hikes. They speak perfect english. Rooms and toilets were clean. Breakfast is good and they also offer dinners almost every night for 4 dollars. Best caipis in the bar!

Good location, right next to the subway station and close to the beach, but rooms are small and tend to be overcrowded. Staff is really nice and helpful but beds are small and claustrophobic, lockers for storage are often broken, breakfast nothing special.

The location was pretty good, right across the street from the subway. Staff was nice and very helpful with things to do and how to get around Rio. The bathrooms weren't super clean and there was never soap in it. The rooms were a little overcrowded and very loud late into the night. Quiet times definitely were not enforced. Breakfast was nothing special. The bar made good drinks but was too loud to have a conversation with anyone in. Overall a decent hostel if you're there to party.

Great hostel with direct access to the metro leading anywhere in the city. Staff is friendly and helpful and the bar open at night is killer! Breakfast in the morning is also a great bonus!

The place is cheap, but its really dirty, and crammed to the gills with people, so many that the internet barely moves. None of the bathrooms have soap, and the water tastes like chlorine. The breakfast is decent, but there is not enough common space for all the people they have in there, and Copa inst really a great spot to hangout in aside from the beaches anyway. The triple bunks had no headspace, you had to fold yourself in there. The rooftop door was blocked by a wet mattress.

Great backpackers hostel, easy to find and well located, 400 meters from the beach, opposite the metro station and hospital, close to supermarkets and banks. Welcoming staff, nice common areas, bar with great caipirinhas... I had a perfect stay!

This is a nice/clean hostel. I rated staff low in this review and this ONLY for the housekeepers and the staff that prepares the meals! They are the rudest people I've met thus far in over 8 months of travel!!! If you are a packer that books hostels that have kitchens for use...THIS IS NOT YOUR PLACE!!! They say it's a shared kitchen but it is NOT!! Staff takes over around 6p.m. (supposed to be 7:30-9:30) and will not let you in to prepare a meal for yourself (not kidding)! Kitchen closes at 10?

If you're looking for a place to meet people from around the globe, this is your place. There's a nice bar with priceless drinks where everyone hangs out and makes meeting people really easy. They also have a nice terrace, good wifi and breakfast.
