Some staff members (guy on reception) could have been more enthusiastic and engaged

Great location, clean rooms, comfortable beds, big bathrooms, nice staff, kitchen for guests and an excellent breakfast for a good price. The building looks a bit old, but it is cozy. The only flaw is that my room was a bit noisy in the morning, since it faced an avenue with considerable traffic from 6h a.m. No complaints apart from that.


Great atmosphere for meeting people and partying.


Very well located, close to the beach. The internet does not work very good and definitely don't go to the favela funk party on sundays, as there is not what used to be any more. There is a nice bar and the staff is very friendly.


We arrived Friday evening to a truly all-you-can-eat Brazillian BBQ and drink caipirinhas - starting our Rio trip off great! The hostel was very clean and we felt safe there. It is located in a nice area of Rio. But, to go out we had to take taxis (split with other hostelers from bar) 30-45 min to Lapa or other areas. The staff was very helpful and gave us all the info we needed to go on hikes, see the city, samba, and organized transport for a game at Maracana! Wish we could have stayed longer!


Cool hostel! Helpful staff. Great wifi, a bit slow when the common area is full but nothing to complain. Exceptionally clean rooms and bathrooms. Good location in a beautiful safe neighborhood near the beach, but a bit of a walk/run/ride to the nearest metro station (there will be a closer one soon though!). It definitely has a lemon spirit!!!
