A new hostel, which was a welcome break from the party hostels in Rio. This was my third hostel in the city and I would highly recommend this if you wish to stay in the Ipanema area. Close to Metro and shops. Bathrooms always clean and spotless. Rooms spacious, a welcome relief from the usual over cramped conditions in other hostels. Good kitchen facilities. Common area was not the greatest as it was very small in size.
It was really nice! I got a private room and could sleep very well! The shared bathroom was clean and the shower awesome!

Best bathroom throughout our 2 week stay in Brazil. Awesome water pressure. The noise was our only complaint because people would congregate on the lower level and it would reverberate all the way up and echo like crazy throughout the halls. Staff was a little aloof, as well.
I have never seen such a clean hostel before!
A very clean and nice hostel located very close to the beach of Ipanema. Nice staff, friendly and helpful. Fast WiFi and the best facilities I've ever seen in a hostel (mine at home aren't that good). It's also easy to get there from the airport by bus. The local metro is near and you get to all the interesting spots from there. I highly recommend it.
Positives: * Agree with previous comments, the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in. It was immaculate. * Located excellently for the subway and beach. *Staff are super friendly. * HUGE lockers for all your stuff. * Netflix made for a relaxed evening in the communal area. Negatives * Just be aware there's no breakfast (not a negative really just a fact) * Not a party hostel.
The double bed private room is very small, with low ceiling, so if you are tall I don't advise you to take this room. Despite that, clean, relatively silent, friendly staff, excellent location.
Just perfect!!! The location, the staff, the price.... Only things that you should pay atention before booking is that it's NOT a party hostel; So if you looking for it you might not enjoy there. Second thing is that breakfast is not included. For me both things didn´t make any difference.
Location is awesome! Place is very clean staff is pleasant! Can't go wrong here! Note: NOT A PARTY HOSTEL
The best location in Ipanema, also the staff is very friendly. Pretty clean and quiet.

Horrible private room turned into dorm. Room 2 I think. Humid so much that there was some kind of mold on the wall. Ripoff during the world cup...paid USD 50 or more to share a tiny room with two more guys. Good bathroom. No breakfast and no atmosphere. Good location though.
Perfect location for Ipanema beach. Nice and clean. Well run hostel. Very small space to socialise and meet other guests.
Great place to stay in a great location. I would definitely and probably will go back there. Manu and Jack both speak English very well and are resourceful in navigating you around and in helping you plan trips/activities. Triple thumbs 👍👍👍
The hostel is very clean, kitchen facilities are nice. It is in a good location and the front desk staff are very helpful. Not a party hostel so nice for those that want to have a nice clean place to stay.
Killer place! Top location, all new facilities, great fun staff, big lockers...go there!!
Manu is an excelnet staff. Bathroom always clean. Locker very big for package.
Really clean, really friendly, well-located hostel. Price doesn't include breakfast and there isn't really a nice common area, but you can tell they're thought through your stay (plugs over bed, clean sheets, clean towels, clean bathrooms). Would definitely stay here again.
Huuuuge lockers in rooms: you can keep all your luggage there, not only smth small and the most valuable; really spacious dorm room-i managed to sleep well in 10 people mixed dorm,which usually is not so easy)) big towels. Very comfortable and superclean hostel
Great location close to the beach but breakfast is not included and it's expensive for what it is. And there no real common area to meet people and hang out. I still enjoyed the staff and the lodging but things to be aware of.
