Very good!


As i first time came here was clear that is the best price in Rio, was some prob with cleanless, BUT they CHANGED, i ve got surprised, now i think is the best place around! You shoud try Liam's caipirinhas!


Stayed for a week, the owners are super friendly and help full. Close to METRO and Lapa (Nightlife). Easy access from the airport. All in all worth for a stay!! Thanks again guys!!!


Also it wasnt that clean and we didnt have much room, it was deffenetly a good chois to stay there for 6 nights. Brian makes your stay pretty awesome building a hostal-community. At the end I was sad leaving this amazing hostal.

This is a hostel that won´t stand out for the facilities or the cleanliness, but the good vibes of the hosts. Brian, Liam and Laura are very cool people to share with, and they will tell you to do cool stuff that most of the tourist won´t do. So, being honest: if your traveling experience is about staying in clean and perfect hostel, this is not your place. If you want to experience a different Río, then its perfect for you. Is next to the sambodromo, and a few blocks to the metrô. Thanx bros.
