My second time here, spent 10 nights, could stay for a month. Breakfast great, beds great (considering 10-doorms and 40 degrees). If you're looking for a good way to explore Rio the people working here knows it all, if not they will find out! Amazing atmosphere, location and a staff I'm now proud to call my friends. Carlos, jeff, mae, raph, gui MASSIVE thank you for an unforgettable carneval! Me and my travelbuddy Robin could not recommend it more❤️ Love/ Moa


We had a great time! Brilliant at arranging activities for people staying in the hostel including bar crawls, caprinahs night and we went out together for carnival. Carlos and the team are so friendly and get involved. They also gave us great tips for restaurants. The place is sociable despite the common areas being quite small. Our double room was very hot at night with just a fan in the peak summer but some dorms have ac. Definitely would recommend staying here for a fun social Rio trip

Third time at samba green hostel and just like always, i had an amazing time! Carlos and his staff are ready to do anything possible for you to feel welcome and have a pleasant stay! will be definitely keep coming back!


We had an amazong stay at the hostel. The staff knows nearly everything about Rio and can give you the directions to the places ypu want to see. Close to the hostel is a nice beach and it is not far away from a Metro and a bus station. the kitchen is small, but very useful!
