Please make the wifi better!! It was a mission to hook things. Otherwise, everything was amazing!! Loved it.


Highly recommend! Great staff, clean, one block from the beachospital can set you up with transfers and tours, good breakfast..


Dans une belle maison d'époque, avec vitraux aux fenêtres. Des chambres avec espace et beaucoup de salles de bain et de douches. Emplacement de rêve ! À 3 min de la fabuleuse plage d'Ipanema et à 2 min du marché du dimanche. Toutes le boutiques, resto et café/bar à proximité. Arrêt d'autobus à 5 min, métro à 7min. Personnel aidant. Petit déjeuner ok. Je recommande si vous voulez être près de tout ce qui importe dans le quartier Ipanema !


The staff on reception are really friendly and give lots of help/advice. But the owner seemed grumpy and didn't make people feel welcome. You're close to the beach, get a good breakfast and the common area is good for a drink or a break from the sun.


Perfect location. Average cleanliness. Nice and available staff (even if sometimes they could not speak English). My stay was really expensive, but understandably it was around new year's eve.


The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the hostel is a bit more relaxed and they provide you with pad locks and towels which was a nice surprise. They have a nice terrace and tv room which is a nice place to relax in the air conditioning. I really enjoyed the staff being so friendly and welcoming and are always there to answer any questions.


El hostel está muy bien ubicado. A una cuadra de la playa, y a otra cuadra de la avenida principal, llena de negocios y transporte para movilizarse. La atención del personal hace referencia al nombre del hostel, todos unos troncos. El único que nos atendió más que bien en todo momento fue Leonardo. Entiendo que está contratado por tiempo determinado, probando suerte y con la excelente voluntad que tiene, seguro va a estar en un ambiente menos cerrado como el que nos fue brindado. La limpieza ok.


Excellent hostel. Two blocks from the metro and one block from the beach. Everyone on the staff spoke perfect English. I stayed in a private room and it was very clean and very nice. The WiFi was good for the most part but was occasionally spotty. There was a good bar area with tables for hanging out with other guests. The whole place quiets down at 10:00PM, so it's not a party hostel. It was nice to have it quiet for sleeping.


Muy buena predisposición, muy atentos. El hostel es muy cómodo y sus empleados muy predispuestos.

Perfect location. Close to many good restaurants and stores. One block from ipanema beach. Stayed in 3 different hostels in Rio and this was my favorite. Dormitories and facilities were average. Private rooms were nice for the price, beds not as comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast and atmosphere was average. The location was everything. Would stay here again.


This best thing with this hostel is the location, i don't think it could be better, just by the metro, near the beach and restaurants nearby. The hostel has a great relaxed and quiet atmosphere, with hammocks around and plants of all kinds. Not that many bathrooms though, so sometimes in the morning you had to wait or walk a bit around till you found one free. All-in-all i had a great stay. Again great great location!!


Great hostel good breakfast great helpful staff wifi slow but ok


Excelente, super bien ubicado, las suites maravillosas, desayuno perfecto, parece hotel 5 estrellas para ser hostel, la atencion buenisima, muy buenas personas, el ambiente de calidad, tienen de todo para la seguridad de documentos, muy muy muy limpio, la verdad es que excelente, he estado en muchos en varias ciudades del mundo en hostel y este realmente bueno me sorprendió gratamente!
