We stayed here just for one night because it was close to the airport. In a 12 bed dorm peoples stuff was absolutely everywhere and also empty alcohol bottles. There is also a cat that sleeps on the beds. Small lockers in room (which you should use). Kitchen area is good and pretty good breakfast however Lapa is a rough area and the people staying at this hostel were there to party and not really consider others. Not a nice vibe.


This is a great hostel to spend the weekend. In 7 days in Rio I booked three hostels: Copacabana 3 nights, Lapa 2, Botafogo. Lapa hostel is perfect for anyone interested in partying in Lapa. The FREE CAIPIRINHA is true, goes from 9 to 11pm on fridays and saturdays, and it brings all guests together. So it's easy to meet people while drinking, and then go out to party together in Lapa, be it in a club or just walking the streets. In the street, look for the 750ml caipirinha for 6 reais.
