Great staff during carnaval. Especially Julia who works at the front! Always made sure guests were having a great time! Good atmosphere!


A great hostel to stay in. The atmosphere isn't fantastic in the communal areas so I wouldn't recommend going if you are a solo traveller- but the rooms are clean with lockers (that had plugs in them- so useful!) The breakfast isn't great though. There is so much to do in Rio that you don't really want to hang out in a hostel for a long time during the day- but if you're the kind of person who would want to do that then this isn't the hostel for you I don't think!


Awesome hostel with a really good set-up.
