They used to have a great breakfast, but last time I was there it was so poor. It will define if I am going to stay there again or not.


This hostel is fine to stay one or two days! The staff is very nice, but the rooms were dirty, and the location was not the best you can find!


I stayed two days at the hotel and enjoyed it, the breakfast is great and the staff are very friendly.


This is not an expensive hostel and you get what you pay for - the facilities are average at best but sufficient for a quick trip to Rio (we stayed 1 night just to be able to catch a flight to Campo Grande). As a note, we had paid for an airport transfer through the hostel and the driver never showed up. Upon prompting, they did eventually call the owner (who got in touch with the driver) and we got our money back and catch a cab (and it cost R$20 to Dumont as opposed to the $40 they charged).
