It was a wonderful time there in Kaza Rio, the staff was so kind. I loved the environment and enjoyed the time with the another guests. The price is good, and is close to the subway station, so you can go to a lot of places in Rio, there are too restaurants and markets close to the hostel. I loved my time there. I hope see you again guys!

Security was amazing within the hostel, however the staff were quite annoying not letting anyone actually entering the hostel. The staff members were not particularly nice or helpful. The location is near the metro station which is convienent however you don't want to catch it from around that area as it quite unsafe, 2 girls had their bag snatched even during daylight. The atmosphere was quite dim and the reception is really annoying with opening times. Only bonus is decent showers were ok.
Nice hostel with clean rooms and great value for money. The only problem is that if you leave a legitimate review with constructive criticism, (for example, that many policies are strict to the point of inconvenience) the management leaves a passive aggressive comment attempting to undermine the reviewer. Nice staff. Also they made us pay for more drinks than we had. :(
I have stayed in many hostels and what was different about Kaza Rio is I was able to meet so many people actually from the country and not just other backpackers. Stay at Kaza Rio if you want the local experience and to see a different side of Rio and Brazil. When I first arrived in Rio I planned on staying for 2 weeks. Due to the amazing staff and other guests I met at Kaza Rio I ended up staying for 4 weeks! Every time it was time to checkout, I kept extending my stay.
Amazing hostel and great people! Some of the nicest people I've ever met while traveling work here. They'll take care of you and make sure you have a great time in the awesome city of Rio. Also, the hostel itself is comfortable, clean, well-taken care of, and well-run. Everything you could want, cannot recommend it enough!
