Staff was super attentive but the hostel run out of hot water during all our stay. The bedroom we stayed didn't have a window, no ventilation at all and was moldy.

I booked 10 nights and I can really recommend this hostel. It was mostly visited by Brazilians, you get into contact with your roommates very fast and its very nice if you want to train your Portuguese. The location is good, very close to the bars, the arcs and the stairs in Santa Theresa. Metro is about 15 min. by feet. Lapa means bars and music, so of course it can be loud especially at the weekends. It is not a noble shiny hostel but it is real and has a very good and friendly atmosphere.
