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.

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.


I absolutely loved Samba Green. The staff was lovely and Carlos the owner is a genius! He was like a big daddy, making sure everyone was comfortable and having fun. He is constantly looking for feedback to improve his hostel and make your experience better. The dorms were very good, bathroom usually excelent but the kitchen could use some work, mainly because its a bit small and the dining terrace was nice and clean. I met so many wonderful people at Samba Green and I would definitely go back!
