Brilliant little place that feels like home as the hostel can only hold a max of 20ish people. Staff are really interested in your daily activities and all speak English, Sweedish and Portuguese. Good breakfast - amazingly equipt kitchen to cook good meals. Clean with warm powerful showers. My only complaint is that there is no lockers in the rooms for big bags. Definitely recommend - we didn't want to leave.

Beatrix and Brandon were phenomenal. The bathroom was one of the best hostel bathrooms I've been in after 6 months of travel throughout North and South America - large, bright, cleaned several times each day, no issues with hot water, etc. The kitchen was a little dodgy but otherwise the entire experience was first-rate.

Great staff, very eager to help. This hostel is anything but a party hostel and therefore attracts a specific audience. Good and safe location; close to the metro, beach, bars and supermarket.

Fantastic hostel in ipanema beach area. 2 blocks from the beach there are restaurants and bars all around the hostel area. Supermarket and Metro 2 min walk. This is a small homely hostel with fantastic staff. The staff went above and beyond. They're full of great local tips about places to go and things and how to get there cheaply and safely. Breakfast was very good, everything is cleaned daily, every dorm bed had a plug to charge, we'll stocked kitchen, wifi worked well. Go here!

Excelente hostel com localização impecável, perto de copa, fica no melhor lugar de Ipanema, perto do metro. Arejado e limpo. O único problema foi o aquecimento do chuveiro, que estava intermitente. Recomendo e voltarei sempre para ficar!

Certainly one of the best hostels I've ever been to. Located just some 10 walking minutes from Praia de Ipanema, this place offers everything for a relaxed stay. It's not a party hostel at all, but if you like a quiet athmosphere with more of a "family" feeling, that's the perfect place. Staff is amazingly friendly and does everything to help guests feel at home, and they have many good sightseeing tips. Cleanliness is above-average, and they offer a yummy breakfast buffet. Highly recommended!

Great hostel, walking distance to copacabana and ipanema. Staff and atmosphere is great, located in the compound of other hostels. Only problem was that the aircon in the room wasnt working, and the bed frames and mattresses were old.

The staff of this hostel is simply amazing. I was very well greeted by Chris, the owner. Awesome dude! Than the next day I met Soschia (is that correct?), the dutch woman, another great person. The hostel is very well located, close to metro station, neighboor to the Delirium Cafe. The beds are good, rooms are clean, the bathrooms are very clean and the shower is great. Breakfast is good for a hostel. I enjoyed a lot staying here.

We stayed for 6 nights and it was all we needed. There was hot water, a comfy bed, good internet, and a decent breakfast. The location is perfect for a day at the beach or is a short walk away from the metro to see the sights. The staff were extremely helpfully and fully of energy and enthusiasm!

A great little hostel- really friendly staff and a good 'chatty' atmosphere among the travellers. Great location but a little pricey for what it was.

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

AmazingHostel with exemplary hospitality by Saskia & Chris. (hope i got the spelling correct). Saskia and Chris, your hospitality goes beyond what a 5 star hotel can provide and you guys never once treated what you all were doing as a job but I can tell you enjoy meeting people and are travellers yourself. I was already blown away by the country yet to return to such an environment is priceless. You guys definitely set the benchmark for my future travel accomodations!

Das Harmonia Hostel ist absolut toll! Die Mitarbeiter sprechen nicht nur Portugiesisch, sondern alle auch Englisch!!! Und waren sehr sehr nett und hilfsbereit! Das Hostel war sehr sauber, die Badezimmer wurden mehrfch täglich geputzt. Auch die Zimmer bieten ausreichend viel Platz. Und die Lage des Hostels ist auch super. Supermarkt ist in der Nähe, sowie der Strand von Ipanema, Bars etc.. 100% Weiterempfehlung :)
