The view from the terrace is totally wonderful and the rooms are really clean and the staff is really cool. ! I totalle recommend this place ! Just a bad thing, It was difficult to find the hostel for taxis ...


Thank you Marcelo and the whole staff that made a solo traveller feel right at home. I booked one of the private rooms for my last night in Rio and the view from the balcony is just as impressive as everyone says it is! The water didn't work for a few hours but it was addressed with urgency and I was updated once it worked. Wifi was spotty. Only two buses have a stop near here and it is quiet at night. Don't come here expecting a party...but a place to chill to an amazing view of Rio.


Needed to be kept a bit cleaner, and the bathrooms are very very small! You couldnt fit a large person in there!


We stayed just one night at this hostel but would have happily stayed longer. It is in a good location, 10 minute walk from Lapa. It is a bit difficult to find on your own so you are better off getting a taxi the first time. Its located in Santa Teresa, which IMHO is one of the safest neighborhoods in Rio. The staff are friendly and helpful and speak good English. The room (private quad) was spacious, bright, clean and had an awesome view over Centro. Shared Bathroom was clean and modern


Amazing view, very cool common areas (in private rooms you have your own balcony with great view on the city)

The view is wonderful and the staff is super friendly. There are lockere and a kitchen as well as a shared fridge. In 15/20 minutes walk You are in the Center and lots of Bars and Restaurants are close.
