Location location location. Don't expect big rooms and a proper lounge. Our stay happened really well, we met friendly people and staff was helpful. Private room is nice.


Very nice hostel , good location, two minuts walking from ipanema beach , and good wifi


Great atmosphere and service. The manager is very nice as well as the people who decide to stay in the hostel. It is very close to the beach and it is in the heart of Ipanema, only one block from the main street.

Not the hostel feeling, bad condition and unfriendly staff. We decided to leave. Except of perfect location I would not recommend booking it.

perfect location, excelent security and good environment. Also, you can leave your room without being worried about your stuff into the the bedroom. Two times times and noone stole something from me.


We stayed in a double room for two nights. The downstairs seems to be occupied by old Brazillian men watching the football! Reception is a man on a seat with a stack of paper and a money box (when he was there). Was slightly concerned about security but we had no problems. Wifi was very good (2 different routers available) and we had a fridge, a hammock and a balcony ... Which for backpackers is definitely a luxury. I'd opt for the Ocean Beach Hostel (opposite ) but this is also good.
