Such a good hostel! Close to everything: subway, grocery, restaurants, bars, beach.... The only thing I'd recommend is to serve a breakfast and allow to turn the air conditioning during the day if it's too hot (they only allow to turn it on from 10pm to 9am) at the shared dorm.

pros: great location, super clean, helpful staff and advice wall reasonably priced for a double cons: quite a few rules, very hot kitchen, lacked a bit of atmosphere, but would stay here again in a flash

Cheap and cheerful. No decent common area but good base for the beach

Very clean and calm hostel near Ipanema beach. Unfortunately the reception is just open from 10am to 10pm which is bad if you need information in early hours. Not all receptionists are good, one couldn't even tell us how to get to the Christ statue. Would recommend though, dedinitely!

We had a great 4 night stay in Ipanema Ocean Hostel, Manu and Olga were so nice and helped us with everything! Great place, really recommendable for relaxed stay close to Beach, metro and bus! :-)

Helpful staff, fantastic location, clean rooms. We stayed in a ten bed dorm and had no complaints. Loved that they had huge lockers with keys for everyone and provided towels also. We saw the cleaning lady working all the time, definitely would recommend! Not a party hostel which is exactly what we wanted on our first and last few nights in Rio. They will also let you use the shower before heading to the airport if you've already checked out earlier that day.

This hostel has more private rooms, the common area is smaller/singular, and the kitchen doesn't really have a table to sit at (just a counter) which I think leads to why it is less of a social hostel BUUUUUT the staff are BEYOND amazing and EXTREMELY helpful and the facilities are great! They have stuff you can take to the beach, easy laundry services, lot of info about the area, and the staff are really nice/friendly. It was great staying here :) it just depends on what your looking for.

Great job guys! Manu tá de parabens! Um bom ambiente e bem administrado. Missed a locker or "room" to store luggage.

If you like CLEAN, this is your place. Absolutely sterile. But also devoid of ambiance. However if you're looking for a quiet place to well, keep to yourself, you've got it. Great location.

It is very clean and a short walk to the beach Ipanema. Close to the supermarket and metro. I will maybe go back there to stay again in a couple of weeks.
