Good hostel close to one Metro station and Sambadrom. But for all other reason one has to go near Copacabana area including city tour etc. The staffs are helpful but they are not quite informed with what is happening in the city and how to avail those. However they try their best to find it out for you. There is no computer kept for internet usage as mentioned in the facilities. I did not like their demand for half of the total money in advance by western union or threatened to cancel booking

Hey, thanks for your review! We do not say that we have computers, even thou we do have an ipad only for guests. About the 50% it's for big events only, and it's written on the website, so if guests don't feel comfortable with this rule they know before booking it. About the city tour, since we are near sambodromo, the close the street for carnival and it's about the tour company they changed this year, we are looking for new companies to do the tour. Cheers!

It's a nice hostel with a fair price. During my stay they had a fumigation, but they did compensate for the inconvenient. Bad Points: The neighbourhood is not very safe by night and the facilities are not in their best shape. Good points: The staff is very attentive and friendly, a nice breakfast and good cleanliness.

Thanks for your review. About the neighbourhood: We've been here for almost 2 years now, and since then we never had a single case of guest being robbed in the area or having any kind of problem, it's a local and non touristic close to main attractions by several options of transportation. About the facilities, even been only 2 years most part of our facilities it was already replaced for new ones. Cheers!


Nice place. Pity there was not a kitchen too cook.

Thanks for spending time with us! We have a microwave and oven that guests are allowed to use, soon we will have a stove also! Cheers!


This is for much one of the best hostels i have ever stay in value for money. Excellent price ! Very Very Very Clean!, The argentinan girl Emi really good person and always trying to help you. I would be perfect if they add stove to the kitchen and if they left open the terrace after 10 PM. (They told me they are on the way buying the stove) besides they have a lot of kitchen tools. Ill highly recommend this hostel to everyone. There is a metro station just 1 block away!.


A lovely little hostel with a relaxing atmosphere, it has a homely feel and a nice terrace/bar which is great for meeting other travelers. The staff were friendly and helpful and it's only a couple of blocks from the metro- I'd stay there again!
