If you are too tired or too disoriented to find your room and you just crash on the couch, its mambembe. If you arrive in rio without plans for the weekend and people invite you to crazy parties, its mambembe. If you feel tired from your trips and you just chill out in a cozy living room maybe cook your favourite food in a tidy and clean kitchen, its mambembe. If you plan to stay in rio for only 3 days and you end up staying 10, its mambembe. And the breakfast is good, too

The hostel staff was great and very helpful. They found our friends wallet after we left and kept it safe and returned it to him afterwards. We arrived pretty early in the mnorning and they let us use the showers and have breakfast and even put the bags in the room. The hostel is in Lapa, which turned out to be the best position for going out, all in walking distance. As for sightseeing, it's easy to get around either by bus or metro and some of the central part one can do on foot.

I stayed there 2 times and I really liked it! The first time I was there at Carnaval; the whole staff was wearing costumes and lend clothes to everybody who wanted to dress up! The kitchen is perfect, with a lot of clean, useful facilities, that makes you feel like cooking at your own place.:) Talking about food, breakfast is great as well, there is everything, from bread and jam, over hot cheese sandwiches and cereals, to fresh tasty fruits! Only champagne is missing!^^ Oli is an amazing guy!:)

Great place. Directly adjacent to Lapa, an awesome night time spot. Easy access to the subway (metro, ~10 minute walk)Would stay again if visiting Rio.

The place was phenominal! I've stayed at another hostel and this one just blew the other one out of the water. Honestly the location is amazing, the owners are incredible helpful and they don't gouge your eyes. Loved it!
