Good location, near Botafogo metro station. Nice staff, helpful and speaking English and Spanish. Only disadvantage was the lack of showers. There was only one shower for one floor. Too many beds in the room. But in the general, it was OK and I would recommend it to other backpackers.

Prior to arriving in Brasil we discovered that our reservation was cancelled, not being notified by the hostel before. Then they said they would get us another room & not to worry. Upon arrival we were told that we were moved to another location very far from where we were, without being notified of this before. We then waited in the hostel common area for two hours waiting to hear back whether or not there was a room for us at the other location.


Infelizmente a hospedagem passou longe de ser agradável, o local e mais parecido com uma pensão do que com um hostel, os funcionários não tem informações turística e nenhum poder de decisão tudo fica a cargo de uma dona que vive fora, não teve limpeza no quarto durante o período de hospedagem, ficamos um dia todo sem chuveiro ... a área de convivência próximo a recepção vira dormitório durante o dia e a noite não tem sofá e cama... só tenho reclamações nenhum elogio... não volto nunca mais......

The price and location of this hostel could not be better! Security is great other than if someone really wanted to get into your locker they could easily break the latch off the door. With that said I never worried about my things or personal safety. Some of the personnel could be more nice; Vanessa is a beautiful person and wonderful. I would absolutely come here again!

La verdad, una suerte habernos hospedado en ese hostel, la localización es excelente, muy bien comunicado y practicamente en el centro de todo. El barrio muy tranquilo y da sensación de seguridad. Además al tener cocina permite ahorrar bastante si gustan de cocinar. Tienen un gato muy simpático y la limpieza de los baños, la verdad, sorprendentemente buena. Muy recomendable
