good location in the center of Lapa, staff is helpfull, but very basic accomodation, nothing more than a matras on the ground


BEST VALUE FOR MONEY IN RIO Good security - lockers and 24h reseption who buzz you in. Great location - one block away all the Lapa-madness (but its not noise here during nights) BEST staff - helped us a lot from day one. friendly, speaks a lot of languages. Chilled athmosphere in the roof terrace!! They upgrated our room when it arrived big groups of people (without extra cost) I´ve stayed at a lot of hostels in Rio, but will come back to Lapa Arte next time.


I will stay here next time I'm in rio. The staff are awesome. Still a young hostel so not many facilities but it's reflected in the price.

Well I was off to a rocky start with Lapa Arte Hostel it took me a while to find the location and they were a few glitches with the check-in. The fact that it's a new hostel and is the sister hostel of Lapa Hostel I can understand now. Despite the mishaps at first Thays was very accommodating & helped fix the situation to make my stay easier. I love that they still offer us free caipirinhas on Fridays and Saturdays at their other hostels. I was able to have a great time meeting other travelers.
