Best Hostel I've ever stayed in Brazil. Clean, lively, friendly staff and a lovely rooftop pool. The problem are the prices of products and services offered.

Awesome!! Staff extremely polite and helpful. The hostel is beautiful, clean, easy access... The only things I missed were a fan (since the air conditioner is turned on only at night and ventilation is poor), and shelf for toiletries and more hooks to put clothes / towel in the bathroom. I highly recommend this hostel!

The hostel is located in coast side area which is a bit far (30mins) away from Old City. I was at first concerned that the hostel might have been too away from center, but it turned out perfect. The neighborhood is reasonably safe and cozy area, where you can find bars, akaraje stands and night clubs. The staff (I mean you, Danilo!) was super nice and friendly, English speaking , you won't feel lonely. The facility was impressive too, perfectly clean and nicely designed. Highly recommended!!
Hostel is aimed at rich Latin American travellers - bar prices reflect this and advice on where to eat "cheaply" reflect this. Rooftop pool is nice touch. Aircon in common areas is icy. Staff speak good English (mostly). Good location in Rio Vermelho for those who like to party. Doesn´t provide free filter water.
