Very friendly and sympathetic owners of the hostel, very helpful (I was having fever, they helped me out with a thermometer to measure my body temperature and with medicine to lower my temperature), giving recommendations for my stay in Rio de Janeiro. For the most of my stay which I extended by some days I was the only guest in the hotel so I had the bathroom for myself - suppose it is difficult with one bathroom only when there are many guests. Well-sited, close to bars & restaurants in Lapa.
We had a very good stay and both Elisa and Sid were so helpful. They also provide guided tours and we had a great experience (ask for their best seller tour ;) House is close to the best area to have drinks and enjoy good food!
The Hostel is located very very close to Lapa so has a perfect situation in Rio de Janeiro. You can enjoy the city center, Lapa and Santa Teresa very easily, and you can take the subway also very easily to go to other places of the city! Elisa and Sid are very friendly and will help and answer all of your questions. The hostel is calm and plaisant too, with a good value for money... Very good choice!
Great little hostel just 2 minutes walk from the vibrant Lapa district and Santa Teresa. Elisa and Sid were most welcoming and I'd definitely recommend a visit!

We couldnt have asked for a better hostel from which to explore Central Rio. The owners were extremely helpful throughout with tips on attractions and local facilities. The hostel was VERY clean, breakfast was great and the location couldn't be better for a night out in lapa. The hostel was quiet and laid back, which suited us perfectly. Thanks Sid and Elisa!
