very nice hostel, it really felt like home and in one of the best locations you can ask for in rio.


Ipanema is good place to stay... The hostel is located in a small hostel street! The very small rooma were very expensive during the World cup! No safe in the room!

Decent rio hostel. Expensive but understandable.


The rooms were very cramped, and even the common area had too much furniture but not enough space for people to sit. For the facilities provided, the price was too high (maybe due to FIFA World Cup season). There is no 24-hour desk which is strange in a city known for its late night parties. We were told "Ring the bell if you come back after 11 pm, and 'hopefully' someone would open the door."


Great location close to beach. only downside would be number of toilets. only two toilets for whole hostel. anyway loved the big screen tv
