Apparently one shower only works when the other one is on.
The staff at the hostel are the best! it's a really nice place and well located too, BIG and i mean BIG place! you'll love it.
Great hostel and really good atmosphere. Short cab ride to all of Rio's attractions. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was one of the best ive ever had at a hostel, was more than just your traditional Brazilian breakfast. Common rooms were awesome with 2 different tv's you can watch. The only thing i found bad about Samba Palace was that the wifi at times did not work very good. Other than that, i would recommend this place to anyone and i would stay here again
Expensive but it was during the world cup. We had descent size en-suite double room with tv/ac. Well run, secure hotel with good atmosphere.
This hostel has amazing facilities that are regularly cleaned throughout the day. But sadly breakfast is only served from 8-10 which is obnoxious since most of the tours we did while in Rio picked us up around 7:30. And with the exception of two people, the staff is also rather unfriendly and not very helpful.
