Great staff, friendly, helpful and fun to be around! 30 second walk to Sambodromo A wonderful stay in Rio!


I've stayed in just under 30 different hostels around Europe and South America over the past twelve months and Other Side Hostel is easily the most homely and welcoming of the lot. Can't speak highly enough of the knowledgeable staff and how they make visitors feel instantly comfortable. Very easy to meet new people in this hostel if you're travelling alone as I was, and there's usually some event or activity put on each night by hostel staff.


Nice hostel in a very good location. Easy going atmosphere and friendly staff. On the other hand I think that the hostel is kinda overrated... services are basic, there is just one toilet and cleanliness is not the best. Apart form that It remains anyway a very good cheap option, probably one of the best value for money you can have in Rio.
