Chill place near the beach. Staff was very friendly. Its nice to have surf lessons and sup available and some other tours. There isnt much else to do in the area besides the beach. No where to eat nearby for the most part. Bathrooms were pretty dirty. Nice place to unwind. Decent place to mingle with others.


Environment in the hostel was very cool and relaxed, and you were able to sleep if you wanted to. So not that kind of crazy party hostel. There was nice yard where everyone hangout after surfing. Located about an 1 hour from the centre of Rio.


Pros: lot of stuff to do surf; good breakfast; silent; with Netflix. Cons: a bit far (you need to take a taxi from the bus terminal of Recreio); infested by modquitos; no supermarket nearby (need to take a bus)


Very good vibe and friendly staff. No problems at all and would recommend this for people who want a peaceful yet fun hostel with lots of surf and music to go around.
