The staff of the hostel are great and they help you with everything you need. There are dinners with a really good price at the hostel. The dorm rooms are tight, and don't have much space, but it is the same in all of Rio. The manager Federico, helped us so much much with the rest of the trip and was very kind about all of our stay in the hostel. Over all a good hostel in Rio.

Staff very friendly and helpful


It was very very crammed. 6 people dorms could only fit 6 people in them when everyone were in their beds. Impossible to have more than 2 suitcases out from under the bed at a time. They had a lockup under the beds for you bags but they kept breaking and most locks didn't fit them. No individual door keys. Sheets looked thilthy, ripped and smelt dirty. The mattresses were feral. Bathrooms dirty and smashes in the windows ment people could see u when u showered. good wifi, great location!
