The staff at the hostel were really helpful and friendly telling us the best places to go and the best way of getting there too. The hostel is nice and clean and has a good atmosphere and is in a brilliant location 5 mins away from the metro. Only thing that would improve the hostel would be a kitchen as you have no option but to eat out all the time. The bar that is attached to the hostel is also really good and the staff their are really friendly and helpful too.

A whole new concept of hostel.


I stayed in the 16bed dorm during the carnival and it was a very pleasant stay: location is very good and safe and the hostel is very clean. The staff is lovely, very helpful to help and open to chit-chat. Each bed comes with its own locker, however, mine was broke. Luckily, I used my friend's but had I travelled alone it would have been very inconvenient. Also, the breakfast is very basic!


Great place to stay during Carnaval - relaxing and quiet in the day away from the mania that is Lappa, but close enough to metro stations/all the action. Would definitely stay here again!


I've done a fair bit of hosteling and this is definitely one of my favourites. Not sure of other Rio hostels but Id regard this as a slightly quieter and higher end hostel. Though still very cheap. Pros - Amazingly helpful staff - can't get over how lovely they were and how much they all went out of their way to sort out trips, give tips, etc. Not only to me but others I was staying with. Helped make my holiday in Rio over Carnival - Beds and rooms were really comfortable with good air con. Sh
