This hostel has amazing potential with a beautiful building, very good location and very good facilities, but the atmosphere is quite dead. The staff could do more to promote the hostel and make people feel welcome. The breakfast was great.
Good hostel overall. Comfortable, well located close to a subway station and nice staff. Breakfast was ok. Would recommend to other backpackers.
Gloria isn't the safest or nicest area in Rio, but if you're sensible you should be fine, and it's very close to the subway and to the nightlife of Lapa, which has more bars, restaurants and sights to see. Staff were ok, and there wasn't much atmosphere or buzz like the best hostels have, but the price was good considering it was just before New Year and they didn't hike the prices as much as other hostels did. No A/C, only fans, but rooms and showers fairly decent.
Hostel for the mature traveller. Classy reception area, nice, rooms, bathrooms, breakfast not bad. nice building-high ceilings. Clean. Good place if you're looking for quiet, which I was, not so suitable if youre looking for noisy or sociable. . Reception staff were not unfriendly, more functional, not warm and fuzzy either. Glorias a good location for getting downtown 15 min from the beach by train. (could've done with a warning about pickepocketing hookers at night-but not their fault)
