Not the best hostel, besides the security point of view the rest of facilities were fine. The staff was nice and gave the information that I needed, they speak English. The room is clean and there are many things to do for fun. Rooms have air condition.
The location is very good, because is in the middle, between the center of the city and most famous beachs (Copacabana, Ipanema). The Flamengo beach (a really quiet one) is near. The only bad thingh is that rooms in the third floor are too warm
Was there for Carnaval so we payed more than usual. Bathrooms and rooms were cleaned maybe twice while we were there. No air conditioning in rooms. Recpetion hended out keys to basically anyone which was good for the friends who needed a place to sleep for the night but overall, not very safe. The best part was its location to Metro Catete which made getting to parties and the beach easy.
Was there with a bunch of friends to celebrate the New Year in Copacabana. Hostel well-connected 'cause of a metro station next to it: we were able to come back safely and with no problems at all. Atmosphere, though, not captivating. Lounge and reception really good and with air conditioning, but the rooms are terrible (no air conditioning, only one dirty bathroom for the entire hostel (!), which is pretty huge). Very expensive because of the period, but poor experience. Breakfast under average
Good: Location close to a metro station, safe area, restaurants and markets around, price was high for the New Year period but it was better than most hostels Bad: The dormitory room was not well maintained (though clean). The worst was that there was no air-conditioning, only fans and they didn't work! We did not manage to sleep because it was so hot. We complained but nothing was done. Though competitive, the price we paid was not cheap so they could at least fix the fans...
No me gustó el hostel, si bien es cierto que el precio era bastante bajo, los servicios brindados no fueron los adecuados. El hostel me pareció muy sucio, el desayuno un poco incompleto y la habitación en la que nos hospedamos no contaba con aire ni ventilador...con un calor de 40 grados me fui imposible dormir las 2 noches que estuve hospedado
