Stayed here to go to a festival at the Jockey Club and had an amazing stay. All the staff are really friendly and let you play your own music etc. I would have given it a 10.0 but thought i'd give a fair reflection of the place in other aspects. Not sure if the hostel is the same vibe on a usual weekend, but would definitely return!

One of the nicest facilities that I've stayed at in a hostel & also really good security! In a great location - lots of cute restaurants and bars on that street. It gets a bit loud around dinnertime but then dies down when you want to sleep Very close to the metro stop that you can take to get around anywhere in the city. Also close to the Vila Madalena area where there's a great nightlife. There's also a very cute patio area in the hostel with hammocks when it's not raining!

The hostel is located in a nice area, but overall had the worst experience, TONS of mosquitos and NO A/C. Just keep it in mind before book it!

Great to have to hammocks to hang out in especially when you're hung over. I like the neighbourhood too. Some staff were super nice and others were really cold and not friendly. Still I would recommend this hostel.

Brilliant hostel, comfy mattresses and a light and socket for each bed plus locker and key. Netflix and hammocks in the bag yard made for a super comfy stay. 1 minute walk to the metro too.

Garoa hostel is really good and chill hostel, common areas are really comfortable and if you don't want to party you can chill there too. Renato and Susan are two of the great, friendly staff members, they helped me for everything and kept good company
