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.
Amazing clean hostel, staff where amazing Olga and Emmanuel were brilliant and incredibly helpful with everything. If we are ever in Rio again we would definitely stay again
Without a shaddow of doubt, this is the cleanest hostel I have ever been in. Very nice staff, great kitchen facilities, very relaxed atmosphere. If you are looking for a party, this isn't the hostel for you. However, if you are looking to relax and chill out, this is by far the best place in Rio. I cannot fault Ocean hostel in any way.
I had a good stay at this hostel. First thing you notice is that it is extraordinarily clean. Very good location in Ipanena, just a block or so from the each. Big lockers are provided in the room. Mano, the owner/manager, will do whatever he can to make your stay comfortable. Breakfast is not included, but the hostel will provide a voucher for $3 for a hearty breakfast at the corner deli (stand-up only, no seats.). As others have stated, this is not a party hostel. That was fine for me.
Really clean, modern. Friendly and helpful staff. Awesome location. Good kitchen and wifi. Not a party atmosphere if that was what you were after, but we just wanted to chill so it was ideal.
We'd stay there again for sure. Close to the beach, near the metro, near shops, near restaurants- perfect location. Bathrooms were clean, staff were helpful and English speaking. Kitchen was fairly well equipped. Wifi could have been better in the higher floors. Staff let us store our bags all day and use the bathroom before a night bus, which was good. Common area is a but small, but has mario kart and netflix.
This hostel was perfectly situated and very clean! The kitchen very well equiped. The staff at the reception did not seem very enthusiast about their job and we felt they were bored to answer our questions and help us (they rather wanted to play MarioKart). Anyway, we really enjoyed how clean the hostel was and the proximity to the beach and would definitely recommend!
Very smooth enviroment. Not a party hostel and no breakfast, but the location is awesome! For quiet travelers
Ótimo hostel, limpo e bem localizado

Great hostel three blocks behind Ipanema beach!! Amazing lockers that can fit a lot of stuff. This hostel is the cleanest I have encountered, you will never find this place dirty. Great staff too who are hilarious yet still helpful. This hostel suits those who are independent as it is quieter than most. That said you can still meet fellow travellers here and bond over Mario Kart downstairs.
The cleanest hostel we've stayed in. We loved it, good location in ipanema and very near to the metro. They have lots of very useful tips and information on the wall
