A beautiful hostel+guest house in a house of a family of amazing people. Private atmosphere. Awesome loft-style common space and overwhelming view. caution: House is outside of Leblon, slightly uphill and close to the favela Vidigal, so you should follow some basic safety rules!. The house is close to a dream-beach, you can also walk to Vidigal or Leblon, frequent buses to Copacabana or city. If u look for nightlife and shopping: wrong address. If u want to relax, this is your place!

Three lads travelling to Rio, had an amazing experience at this hostel. Extremely friendly owners with a very secure location. Conveniently located only 5 minutes walk away from Ipanema beach. Very spacious rooms and bathrooms with hot water. Only small problem was that there was not much tourist information given, we couldn't find a map in the hostel. However, this was a minor inconvenience and we will definitely return to this hostel if we come back to Rio.

This is one of the best (or maybe the best) hostels I have ever been. It is quiet with a wonderful view and perfect, when you want to relax. Extremely friendly staff and excellent facilities. I spent 7 nights there and I almost felt at home. The hostel is not to far to Ipanema, but you have to walk a bit. To the center, it takes some time riding buses.

The staff were the nicest I have ever come across in all my travels. They make a mean feijoada (traditional brazilian dish) and caiparinhas on demand. It`s location is not quite central enough to stumble back to in a drunken stupor, but it is an easy walk from all the action and offers a glimpse of favela life. The only pitfall was weak Wi Fi.
what a great hostel,one of the best i have ever stayed in,great location even tho at first i was bit worried it might be little inconvenient turned out to be perfectly safe and well situated,really friendly people and great value for money,,they even cooked for us some of the nights and was able to try some great traditional food,,this is a top hostel and couldn't recommend higher...keep up the good work : )
