The hostel is near the metro station and some bars and restaurants. The Copacabana beach is not very far if you chose to walk and there is a big shopping in the way. Although the avenue is not big, it is very easy to find it even from the taxis. The breakfast was good and the air conditioner in the room was great (the summer in rio is way to hot). All the staff that i knew could speak english and at least one (that i know) can speak spanish. The Santos Dumont airport is not far -10 minutes cab


really nice hostel, increadibly good for resting. Close to subway and bus station. First place I ever see with a cover on the bed besides the linen. Really clean place. Nice staff.


At first I thought, because of other user's comments, that this hostel was going to be simply fantastic. But it turned out to be quite normal and even less impresive than other places where i have been. So, just that, dont make too many expectations about the place. It's good enough.


I've stayed in better & worse. Generally was OK


Most of the staff is really nice and helpful, but not all of them.... Nice place, and really good internet and movie/tv selection...


This was a good location close to the Metro. I wish that there was more of a community feel here. All the guests stayed to themselves. The breakfast wasn't very good and we didn't eat the dinner which might have been better. The place was very safe which was nice. The facilities were ok. The air conditioning would only turn on between 8pm and 10am unless you wanted to pay 20R for the day. The front desk was average. It wasn't reliable if they would be there or not and didn't have any tour deals.


It´s a very nice place form which all main attraction are easily reachable. The staff is great - At the bar Vico is always great for a smart talk an can tell you a lot about the real Rio de Janeiro, Ray is always very Kind and mixes great Caipirihas, the Chef - she´s perfect and the Girls are always very Kind and helpful.
