it's a really new and clean hostel. they also got this super high triple sleepers and the room is quite small. but that's normal for rio. the stuff was very nice and helpful. we liked to stay there. the kitchen is a bit small, can't really recommend it for cooking. the bathroom was always perfectly clean.


I had such a good time! Good people, atmosphere, accessibility with fair price and good cleanliness. That's all that matters!

O hostel precisa melhorar consideravelmente a limpeza, principalmente dos banheiros.


This is a new hostel and the owner is really into it. If there is anything he can do to make your stay better, he will do it. They have events at night to meet other people which is great and the owner himself even made us some dessert one night. My room was in the basement which to get to you had to walk outside a bit (but still within the security of the hostel property) to get to. If it rained it could be annoying. Beyond that, I highly recommend this hostel!


A minha estadia no hostel foi maravilhosa. O staff é realmente muito gentil e amigável. Conversei muito com todo mundo que trabalhava lá, foi muito bom. Sempre tinham indicação de onde ir, onde comer, que transporte pegar, etc. Os chuveiros eram bons e quentes, a cama era ótima, tinha espaço de convivência pra gente conversar e conhecer gente. Achei bem localizado, perto de tudo, de parada de ônibus, dá pra ir andando pra praia, o táxi não dá caro pra voltar da lapa de noite. AMEI!


The hostel is amazing! Very well located, people who work and live there are very nice and sweet! There are a lot of things to do, such as parties or just going to the beach together. Since the guys who work there take everyone together, it's impossible to stay alone and lonely. It is very clean and organised. The kitchen is a bit small, but neat. Plus, the place where people have breakfast (which is free) is well ventilated, big, and you can put everything you buy in order to have other meals.

*Well located!! Botafogo it is a good area and pretty save; the metro is only 5 minutes away. *If you want to stay in a double room, number 6 is the biggest in the hostel... *Carlos, the hostel's owner was very helpful and friendly. I hope his foot is getting better and ready for the next carnival, and his morning coffee was tasty :)


The hostel was very nice and comfortable and surpassed all of our needs. The stuff and the owner was very helpful. Nice atmosphere. Good party. Diversified program. We liked the hostel so much that we stayed 2 more nights than we originally planned. As soon as we will visit Rio again, we will definitely book this hostel again.
