Highly recommendable! Staff is great! The rooms are good. Wifi works in every area. Close to the beach and to the metro. It's a safe place! I'd definitely go there again!

Amazingly friendly and awesome staff! Wonderful breakfast and the strongest wifi I've found in South America so far! Staying here feels like staying at home, it's so comfortable and welcoming. The beds are comfortable and showers are big, plugs and fans for the rooms- I really loved this place. Actually, wound up coming back to Rio and left some friends of mine where they were staying bc i missed this place and wanted to stay again for a couple nights. Try the lunch next door and acai there too!

Thank you so much for your kind words Lauren. It was our pleasure and hopefully we see you again. Kindest Regards Chris


Best choice in Rio, I am sure about that, everything was perfect. The staff was the best.


If you want a home feel experience then you need to come to Harmonia. I had a fun and a wonderful time there where staff are wonderful and the location is excellent. Staff are very friendly, helpful and welcoming and always make sure your stay is joyful. I am coming back and stay here longer on my next trip.

Well, Harmonia is a great little hostel. Its extremely homey and has all the facilities that every hostel has these days. The location is superb, a block from the main street of Ipanema and Metro station, whilst the beach is an extra 2 blocks away. What makes this an excellent hostel are Chris and Saskia. They are a wealth of information and are a joy to chill out and hang out with.


Simple hostel with great owners, great location, always super clean!
