Great location, very nice and clean inside, and personally I loved not having windows in the room, perfect for sleeping after a big night. Although I was told to check out as they were supposedly full, so found another hostel, then went back to pick up my bag, and it turned out they did have space... Highly recommend though!
If you don't mind sleeping in a room without window, Fridays hostel is a good place to be. At the weekend it gets really really noisy, because a disco is next to the hostel! The district Lapa where the hostel is located isn't the safest place in Rio, so take care.
Very lively place to stay. All main attractions are easy to get to by bus or Metro. I used taxi's mainly and thought they were pretty reasonable. For instance to airport 50, to the man on the hill 20. I travelled alone so if 4 in car very cheap when split 4 ways. All staff very helpfull and took time to have a chat with you and give you lots of usefull information. Highlights where, man on hill, Cocacabanna and the great fun at the weekend by the arches. Everyone seems to come out to have fun.
air conditioned works very poorly. It can not be regulated and is too cold.
