The hostel surprised me. Be reformed. Lots of facilities. Excellent breakfast for the standard hostel. Location perfect, in front of the subway station. Just the the bathrooms are so small. Overall highly recommend this hostel


The location was great. Breakfast, cleanliness and staff were fine. The only thing that bothered me was the space inside the room and the bathroom, cause they were really tight.


The staff was really friendly. They are available all the time to give all the information you need. The hostel is conveniently located just few blocks to the amazing Copacabana beach. Everything was awesome

Had an amazing time staying here last week, the people I met were cool and the staff was pretty great, they can get annoyed sometimes but that is expected, I went out with them a few times and had a ton of fun. Bathrooms were pretty clean and I never really had to wait except for maybe at peak hours around 7:00. Overall it's a great environment, the bar is cool and the beer pretty cheap. I had a ton of fun and plan to stay here when I go back. Victor is a pretty chill guy too.

the hostel is good, nothing special or bad about it. The staff is helpful, the location is good, it really is 4 streets from the beach, very easy access by bus or subway. And there is the option of eating dinner in the hostel for 15 reais, that is an excellent price for Rio and the food was very good.
