I liked this hostel a lot. The security was really good and the bedrooms and bathrooms were always kept clean. Rodrigo is very helpful and the hostel offers lots of tours and promotions and are happy to help you make your plans for Rio. It's located just 4 blocks away from Copacabana and a half hour walk to Ipanema (the metro is close as well though). I stayed in other hostels in Lapa and Botafogo, they were cheaper, but this hostel was the best.


great staff, wifi, lockers, air conditioning, location. loved it


Raphael was absolutely fantastic, he is so welcoming and friendly. Only had a one night stay, but the facilities are in need of some work. Location is great in the Copacabana.


Fabulous family run hostel with two very helpful and friendly and welcoming brothers Rodrigo and Rafa. Really enjoyed then champagne and sandwiches and Brasilian snacks they gave out as a pre New Years appetitive before an awesome night out ! Thanks for leaving the airconditioner on all day during the very hot New Years period . Hope to stay with you again when I come for Carnival 2016. Rita- Australia

This staff will help you in any way they can. Really a good choice for your stay i Copacabana. Stayed there with my girlfriend in the double room. Its simple but thats also what makes it cheaper than many other places. The astmosphere is relaxed


Staff were really friendly and spoke English well. The gave great exact directions to stores or locations of interest not just it's around the corner to the left. The location is just a few blocks north of Copacabana beach. It is a smaller sized hostel but the staff made it worth it.


the staff didnt want to turn on the aircondition in the room until 10 pm


Very cool staff in this hostel and nice atmosphere. Unfortunately the value for money is not good, as you can get more comfortable hostels (bigger rooms) for less money in Copacabana


I've found that hostel really dirty, the bathrooms are not enough for all guests and were broken, the hot shower doesnt work, they have nothing for to do on raining season. The lockers are not enough too, so the bags must to stay on the floor.


Very helpful people. Has helped me to find tickets for local shows and teached me how to get public transport. Thanks a lot to Rafael, that stay in the reception. I'll be back for sure.

it is a great hostel. they just should improve the bathrooms and toilets, providing better showers and more hangers


Except for the guy at desk in the afternoon that never had a clue, the staff of this hostel is excelent! Saudade for Enrique and Rodrigo! It is not a party hostel but if you get to know the right people, it can get fun. The patio at the front is great to chill and have beers and good talks. The rooms are good and with air con, but the baths are downstares. Great location! When i get back to Rio, i may be hosted there again.


Not a party hostel. Very small but in a good location. Stayed over carnval, which we paid alot for yet the didnt offer for clean sheets and turned off the air con at 10am. Suppose not a good move since most of us got home around 5am. But if that is what your after, then book here


Terrible hostel. The staff and guests did not speak english. I might expect some people to only speak Portuguese in a Brazillian hostel but to have no staff or guest speak any english is quite unexpected. The people staying here appeared to be locals and visiting Brazillians using the property more as an apartment than a hostel. There was no community, no joint activities, no anything that might resemble fun. I stayed one night and checked in to a better hostel the next day.


The place is nice and clean and the staff is friendly and helpful.


El lugar es lindo, confortable, queda cerca de la playa. El personal te da un trato excelente. Detalle:Un poco chicas las habitaciones, Por lo demas me gusto mucho!


The chick in the mornings ( I think her name was Ameila???) was wonderful. So helpful and lovely. The hostel was great!!!
