stayed in 6 bed mixed dorm. Chris (boss) is a super nice guy, very welcoming and helpful! Saskia and Vanessa are also great people, very nice and helpful! hostel is very sociable, good lockers, good wi-fi, a communal computer (English), decent breakfast - fruit, ham, cheese, bread and eggs, although breakfast could do with being served earlier (8am in my opinion) so people can start their day earlier. Also certain breakfast supplies run short sometimes. Clean

It´s a good hostel in Ipanema. It has a friendly staff (and it´s located in a beutiful building. Although the rooms are a little small, they are clean and the bathrooms are good equipped and have hot water. I definitely recommend it.

I enjoyed the hostel size and the few number of people that it accommodated. It gave me a chance to meet everyone and with the help of the staff made it easy. There was one factor that was truly undesirable that should be mentioned. The room that I stayed in had MANY mosquitos that bit everyone in the room every night. There was no way to control them. Luckily the hostel was not busy and it was possible to relocate to another room. One room had no ventilation whatsoever for a 4 person room.

Was there for world cup. Staff are friendly, great location, nice place to meet people. Only problem was there were so many mosquitoes I had to mummify my body with blankets to prevent being stung at night. I still got 8 bites per night and had to leave 3 days early because of it. The problem is their kitchen is open to the balcony and so mosquitoes can come in unhindered. To make matters worse, they didn't refund me my last 3 days. Bring DEET or don't pay up front.

I think it was in generally secure, but the night doorman who just lets anyone and everyone in, should be portrayed as security. Apart from that everything was pretty good! Room for 4 people was quite small but the hostel is good and I recommend it.

Cozy little hostel in a great location in Ipanema. A good place to spend a few relaxed days close to the beach and bars of Ipanema. The staff is great!

Met a lot of amazing people here including Saskia and the rest of the staff. Perfect location in Ipanema and located on a small alley with half a dozen or more other hostels. Would definitely choose Harmonia again. Situada en un barrio perfecto, Ipanema. Los empleados son amables y responsables. La mejor opcion.

Prime location, friendly and helpful staff combined with peace of mind from great security makes this place home away from home. The 6 bed room even when full never felt too crowded (hostel wise) and breakfast served was always decent. It is located RIGHT next to 3-4 other hostels so there are tons of people to meet and socialize with at any given time - even in the off season! The staff also speak a variety of languages so you're sure to get the help you need. 10/10 overall experience!

A fantastic little hostel. Had a very warm welcome from Saskia, who showed me round. Staff are super friendly. I found the hostel clean, quirky and there was good air con. Really chilled out vibe. Great location!!! Only downside is that it is quite small (I think 16 beds?) which means meeting new people in the hostel is limited. But I really enjoyed my stay and met some great people. Highly recommend this hostel.
