If your main goal is to go to Corovado (Christ Redeemer), than this is the place to stay. All other areas is just a metro train away. For us it was just a one day stop, so did not need much, and it was great for us.


Great location & value for money. Internet wifi had issues. Bedroom did not have key


Breakfast included, and pretty good for the region (i.e. decent)! Safe area and close enough to the metro (underground). The staff was able to recommend some good guides/tours/activities (decent price).


Very helpful & kind staff! Nice room, wonderful old house near the city. Enjoyed our stay a lot!


Good hostel for those who are not looking for a party-like hostel. The staff is very nice and helpful, the rooms are nice and clean, but the restrooms were not enough clean.
