A great little hostel with a nice, laid back vibe - just what you'd expect for a place near the beach. The staff are very friendly, the upstairs is nice and the beds are very spacious and clean. It's an unreal area to stay in, walking distance from Copacabana or Ipanema beaches, the subway and great restaurants/markets. Highly recommend. Thanks for having me!!
Tucked away, with two gates you must enter before getting inside. Felt very safe, little confusing to arrive at first and secure a gate key to get inside and checkin. Lobby area and kitchen were very nice. Bunk rooms are a bit crowded, with bunk beds that are stacked three high (at least in the male rooms). Solid water pressure in the showers which was nice. Was only staying one night during world cup so grossly overpaid (~$100+ USD) but was a good place to rest my head.
Everything were great except the front desk girl that checked me in.
