Great location in the heart of Lapa, good place to stay if you want to sample the night life on offer. We stayed in a double room, that was great and clean. The staff were friendly and really helpful.


We stayed here on our second time in Rio. The location is fantastic for anybody looking for night life in Rio. You are a stones throw away from all the clubs in Lapa. The hostel is somehow still very quite at night. The showers weren't great tho, With only one really working in our dorm with a small bit of hot water if you are luckly. Would recommend for the location and Staff.


Granted we were there in low season, but the hostel was completely dead. Prime prime location, and friendly staff. Really small kitchen with no oven though, and not very creative breakfast. But it's in party Central so most likely you won't be up for breakfast. About 1 minute walk from the lapa arches (best street party in rio).


It could be a bit more silent (I wish...) , but it's a hostel in Lapa after all. I couldn't expect to sleep well in such location...


We stayed in manga hostel for 6 nights or so, and it was wunderfull! The Best part was for sure the staff!! So kind and helpfull! It really made you feel comfortable! The tv-room was great for crashing after a Night out in the vibrant lapa! The location is great if you like going out and have a good time (great to stay in weekends) In total just a good experience!
