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
It's very well localized, just a few meters away from the Metro and Flamengo Park & beach. Though the staff is not the friendliest you can get, it's pretty OK and does it job, especially the cleaning ladies. There are a few minor things that could be improved regarding the facilities: 1) only 1 of 5 showers had working hot water. 2) WiFi is only available from the lobby 3) some of the mirrors were oxidized. It seemed to be very family friendly and far from the party-all-night madness
