Beautiful hostel! The staff were sooo friendly and helpful. Breakfast was amazing - make sure you try the ginger cake! Bathrooms and communal areas cleaned regularly. Felt spacious and lots of chill out areas. Walking distance to Lapa nightlife and easy access to bus to beaches, sugar loaf and christo.


Just PERFECT!!! friendly staff, good location and everything you need is just there. What's better of a swimming pool at night after samba dance in Lapa?


Good hostel. Well located for those who want Lapa nightlife. Staff helps a lot in any problem or necessity. Recommended,

The hostel is pretty nice, the staff speaks english and they are cool people. The only problem i found was that is not very close to a metro station and is up in the hill, so the going up after a day of sightseen in the sun is horrible, but the view from the hostal is really nice.


The staff was great, but facilities weren't the best air con started leaking and leaked for the lockers and on to my clothes rooms were clean the location is great but a lot of stairs to climb up to if your coming back from lapa famous street party but very close to the steps it's like 10 minutes away
