A charming area around the hostel and the people running it gives you a cosy feeling and I think that feeling spreads around the other guests as well. A disadvantage could be a bit cramped and there is only one bathroom and shower. But despite this, definetly a place to feel the wibe of Rio de Janeiro.


we had the pleasure to meet liam and lisy - they were lovely, very friendly, helpful and made us feel at home! the area is quite safe but also a great experience. it is right next to sambodromo, which would be ideal during carneval and a short walk to lapa. TRY HIS CAIPIRINHA!


O hostel fica numa local bacana e o custo benefício é muito bom. Mas, acho que as camas dos beliches poderiam ter mais espaço entre uma e outra, de modo que a pessoa possa ficar sentada na cama sem precisar se curvar, pois isso é muito desconfortável. E o casal que administra o hostel poderia fumar longe dos quartos, ninguém é obrigada a ficar cheirando fumaça de cigarro.
