I was travelling alone and it was so easy to make friends with both the staff and fellow travellers- the atmosphere was great and I would recommend to all. Definitely stay here.

Gostei do acolhimento da maioria dos funcionários. Pelo preco, esperei que os quartos tivessem ar condicionado e fossem mais ventilados. O espaco dos quartos tb é pequeno para o número de camas, tornando a permanencia neste, um tanto desconfortável.

Really nice hostel on a budget. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, cleanliness is very good and good location in walking distance to metros to get to all main attractions. Although no air cons in the bedroom meant they were very hot and wifi wasn't great but overall really good place to stay.


Excelente atendimento, funcionários super educados e receptivos! Me hospedaria novamente sem pensar!

I had such a great time here. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. There is a caipirinha party everyweek and free appetizers. They also give out vip tickets to clubs and parties and are always up for doing something in Rio with you. Definitely stay here.


Good price-quality hostel to stay. Not a "great" atmosphere as there are no nice comunity areas. All in all, decent hostel.


Excelente! Conoci al dueno del hostel CArlos y el nos ayudo muchoi en nuestra estadia en el hostel! Secure good location al clean! Good Breakfast and good vives! No necesita mas! Gracias a Felipe tambien! Saludos


Samba green was a amazing hostel! The staff is warm and friendly with a lot if information about the city. T There is a perfect balance of fun and relaxation which puts all the guests in good spirits. I met amazing people at Samba Green and instantly formed a family away from home! Botofogo is a lovely nieghborhood. You get to see the flow of community life while being still very close to main tourist attractions. The place is clean and colorful! Breakfast is good. No complaints :)


Staff was very friendly. Rooms were musty. If you want a quit night, do not stay here.
