This Hostel is maybe not on the best place located, but there are many different bus stations in front of the Hostel and whatever you needd, the staff knows excactly where it is and take a lot of time for you to organize your tours and answer your questions. Everything was clean and the breakfast very good. The meeting area and the rooms were nothing Special but you could find everything you needed. Anyways you will spend your time in this amazing City or?


Excelent place! The staff is very kind. The location is unique: You can have a lot of local bus routes to must of important parts of Río de Janeiro. The only thing I suggest to improve is the breakfast. I recommend!

Friendly people working at the Hostel. Localed a bit outside the typical Copacabana/ Ipanema area. Next to the lake which is perfect for a nice run, walk or bike trip for 7 km in clean fresh air with an amazing view. Breakfast was missing fruit, which is quiet common in most hostels in Brazil. A minus for me. Make sure to understand how to take the buses back from the beach properly. Taxis don't cost so much for the short ride though.

We asked the hostel where can we do laundry and they offered to do it for us. Their service was not good, they took too long despite their assurances. My advice is: if you cannot handle a service then do not offer to do it. However, the hostel is nice and the breakfast is good.


Good location. Overpriced due to world cup but competitive by comparison. Excellent friendly staff.


I really liked the breakfast, you can make yourself sandwiches. The staff is great and the hostel is about 15 min from copacabana


Good place and location away from the congestion of the copacabana. Considering our stay was during world cup, we did not experience the chaos and the Lagoa and neighborhood felt very local and not touristy in comparison to other areas. Transportation to and from Lagoa was abundant and easy. Staff were helpful and pleasant.
