Despite being out in Meier, the hostel's location is good. Similarly, the staff were helpful and keen to assist wherever they could (helping me attend the police station to acquire a police report for my stolen phone being the best example) which enhances the atmosphere. The rooms were fine, although the bathrooms could have been cleaner/better maintained. Also, there was nothing to stop anyone walking into the hostel and with no room keys or lockers, you had to be careful with any valuables.

Lovely, welcoming staff. Appearance could be improved and atmosphere could be more lively with a bar, food and music. Thin mattresses - could feeel slats on bed. Recent addition of the pool was well utilised. Has potential.
This is a place that is wonderfully located as it is not in the obvious tourist areas of Ipanema or Copocabana but in Meier, one of Rio's many residential districts. Nearby you will find supermarkets, banks and other kinds of shops to cater for your needs. It is very easy to get to other parts of the city using the bus or the train. In my opinion it is better being located here because by the time you leave you will know so much more about the city. The hostel itself is a project in progress.
