Nice hostel in good location. Near the beach and Ipanema . The metro just a few blocks away. The rooms are not that big but who wants to be in a room when you are in beautiful Rio. Nice common area. Wi-fii could be better but hey you are on vacation, be social with the others. Really nice staff and I got a lesson how to do a caipirinha behind the bar, awesome.
Great Hostel :) The staff, the dinner, the breakfast, the reception (Fernando, Federico, Sol and Philipe) the cleaning ladies, the bar woman, everything and everyone made me feel like home. The matress was comfortable, the bathrooms were enough for the people staying at the hostel and quite clean! I´ll definitely be back!!!

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.
