The staff (Louis) is very kind and helpfull (over the duties). The location is good but the neighbourhood is a bit noisy. The bathroom of the room smells so it has to be always closed.


The highest value of this hostel are people working there. They make me feel really welcome and really helped me. I spend there 2 weeks it was fantastic. Great social zone also. Highly commend. And food-walking distans from LAPA with is the best party place in Rio :P


staff are oke but i have seen better, the atmosphere was not that great when i arrived there. nice facilities tough. location wise its a bit of a hard climb when drunk. for those who think it's unsafe as it's an old favella don't be scared


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.
