Some tips about this hostel: 1. Book it online to have better price 2. Breakfast included not for everybody, check it when book 3. Kitchen sometimes is not evaliable for cocking because of problems with water in favela the hostel located in 4. Wi-Fi is slow 5. Across the road there is a party hall and they have some days loud music 6. Watch your money, we missed 100 R$ that were in our room in backpack. It's totally our mistake, but anyway unpleasantly 7. Staff live there own life, were not nic


One of the best hostels I have stayed in. The staff are super friendly and helpful, the hostel itself is well located and safe. People that stay there are easy going good people. I would stay there again for sure, in fact Iwish I had never left. Loved it! Drunky x

They were very welcoming and helpful in my first days in Rio. There was also a good community of people there, which is a good sign. I would go there again!

infrastructure wise the hostel is excellent, I liked to location a lot but it might not be for everyone (only close to the beach and a steep climb to get there), the people at the reception are nice and helpfull. it has a very nice and relaxed vibe but i think the hostels caters (way) too much to western tourists. but then a hostel cant really chose who comes and who doesnt. I would definitely stay again for short visits (1-2 nights), not for longer ones during which i would like to meet people.


The hostel was well designed, pretty with a good hangout space and basic but clean and comfortable dorms. The hostel was not immediately near much in the way of bars or restaurants but was close to the beach. However, atmosphere was pretty meh -- the hostel staff, one woman in particular, wasn't keen on making it a fun spot and had an attitude when we asked questions about the city. It's a nice hostel but not good if you want a lot of action it for them to suggest fun stuff to do or tours.


I spent almost 2 weeks there, such a great place
