Had an amazing time at Manga Hostel! Everything was perfect, definitely I would stay there again. The hostel has a great atmosphere, the staff is very very helpful, and is very well located (close to the best of Rio's nightlife). Also the beds are really good hahaha Thanks, Manga!


The hostel is in a good location and the staff is very helpful except that they didn't have a map to give when i asked for another one cuz the 1st one got wet in the rain. The loud compressors of AC outside all the windows will not u sleep. NO wifi in the room or the open area or anywhere except the near the reception downstairs. The breakfast was not hygenic at all. Not an environment to meet people.


You can tell the people that run this hostel have traveled as it's set up very well for Backpackers. You're right in the middle of the action of Lapa, staff are really friendly, great area to chill out and air conditioning is controlled by reception but not an issue as you can get them to change it.


Great location and friendly staff. There weren't many people in the hostel so wasn't much atmosphere but it could have just been that particular weekend. Very close to all the bars and clubs in Lapa.


Great location. Got a private room - was very clean and tidy. Didn't see many others around the hostel but that was fine as its right in the middle of Lapa. Very good and would recommend.


Great hostel. Good free brekky, clean rooms, nice bathroom with warm showers. Wifi throughout, consciencious staff helped me with bus routes and bookings, perfect location to stumble home from Lapa's nightlife.


ok hostel... staff was just average never went out of their way to help but if you asked they would give you info. seem to cater more to locals than travelers.
