Overall this hostal was ok, you pretty much get what you paid for, we had a nice room with a balcony, the bathrooms and breakfast were average. The main thing I didn't like about this place was the location, it's on the end of two favelas and there was an incident there during our stay which didn't make us feel too safe.

Unfortunately the worst experience I've had in 3 months travelling. On arrival the female on reception basically grunted with no smile, and the male was grumpy/snappy most of the time. Staff stay in the 8 bedroom dorms and take over rooms during the day. You feel like an intruder in your own room. The kitchen was horrendously dirty the first day (got a little better). Fridge smelt and ruined my food. Location is good but didn't feel super safe in the neighbourhood. I moved on quickly

Hello Ashley. We do remember you and wanted to say sorry for your frustrated stay but also explain what happen in this week., 1 - That was busy weekend. i think you got a wrong impression from our recepcionist because she was busy. maybe you tough you deserve more attention. if you check other reviews our staff is always compliment. 2 - The other staff who was walking trought the room was sick in that weekend and working. maybe that why he sounded grumpy and snappy. he worked in the night period so basically he need to get into the room for sleep since he worked all night long. 3 - The other recepcionist offer you the option of change room for you dont feel bother or annoyed anymore but at that point sounded that you were already with the closed mind about the hostel and dindt want to take it per the two days you stayed. 4 - Our staff cleans the hostel every single day in very especific places but we cant control 24 hours the mess that other guests do. we just can ask them kindlly for try to keep their space and other ppl clean. The same as frigde. we check frigdes constantly but we cant control when this is the guests frigde. all we can do is see if something is ruined and trow away as we always do 5 - If you check other reviews you will see that we never had security problems. this area is really safe even staying in the beginning of the favela. i think again you were close mind about stayed in diferent area. wich still is awesome since you are 7 min from the beach. And finally we wanted to invite you to get back anytime and take all the bad impressions that you have from our hostel. Best wishes for you. Thanks, Lisetonga Staff

Amazing place, the location is perfect. Bars restarants and the beach really near! The rooms and the bathroom are survivable and the staff is extremely nice.
