horrible, terrible place, matresses very dirty, rooms cramped sets of 3 bunk beds in a very small space, bed linnen well used with holes, facilities are old, loud terrible music in the sitting area. i left 30 minutes after checking in, went to another hostel , there are many in a better condition.
Nice place about 4 or 5 blocks from Copacabana Beach. No locks in any of the doors but big lockers to hold backpacks All staff very nice and friendly but one of the guys made quite a few inappropriate remarks about women & gays
nice hostel with amazing staff. good location, nice rooms, although not so clean. the staff will help u with everything and the atmosphere there great.
I stayed in this hostel for over a week to discover beautiful Rio. The staff were very helpfull when it came to booking reasonable priced tours. It s a good place for those who wish to go out and party around the city but also for those who wish to stay in and spend their evening exchanging experiences with fellow backpackers from around the world. I felt safe at all time in the hostel and in the area. The food was good and is the best value for money you ll get in the area . thank you

This is the worst hostel I have ever stayed in! The rooms are overcrowded and dirty. Although there are large lockers the rooms as so small it's impossible to get the bags into the lockers. The breakfast was average but there wasn't enough to feed all backpackers. This hostel was so bad I ended up leaving two days earlier than planned.
WIFI needs improvement. If you can only get it at the front desk, then turn down the music so we can talk on Skype without yelling. Thanks.
Super cramped! But there were huge lockers under the beds big enough for a 75L rucksack and then some. round the corner from metro station and a nice pizza place!
cool hostel, staff are Amazing - so friendly and helpful, made me feel at home from day 1. The actual hostel is fun, clean enough and well located - near metro stop and 5 mins from the beach. Little bit cramped but who cares!
Great location. Center to copacabana and metro. Not a far walk to Ipanema. Lots of groceries and restaurants around. Great value! Fernando and the staff are excellent!! Very helpful and fun to hang out with! Stayed another week I was having so much fun!
great location, helpful staff, rooms very small, good breakfast.
Really friendly, helpful and thorough staff, a great breakfast and hostel is kept as clean as it could be. Not much to do in Copacabana itself except go to the beach, I would probably stay closer to Lapa next time. 9 bed room is more spacious then the 6. Also EL MISTI ILHA GRANDE is pretty gross - really old, barely working wifi and for most of my stay there was no running water. would be improved a lot with new mattresses and pillows. excellent breakfast though.
Super friendly staff , they gave the best "what-to-do-tips", helped with every problem and made us feel at home right away! The free tours with Luis must be awesome - sadly I couldn't go, I'd still recommend it ;)

Even though tiny rooms, there is a great atmosphere here, with friendly staff and awesome location. Highly recommend the El Misti two brothers mountain climb with Luis!! Best views over rio and a few lovely stops in the favela for acai ice-cream and cold beer.
at check in our room room without window. only air condition, , and saw sharing room with 9 beds in a very small room. too crowded., to expensive for the quality of that place.
A very good budget hostel. Staff are friendly and happy to help and the breakfast is nice also. Only real negative is that the hostel is quite busy for its size, and therefore the bathrooms aren't often very clean, even though there is always someone cleaning. We would stay again though!:)
