Quite a large hostel, staff were very friendly and spoke English (or tried their hardest to do the best they could) special mention to Victor and Horge who were fantastic and extremely helpful. Located in Botafogo which is a residential and safe district. Main point of this hostel is that 90% or so are Brazilians so there's not as much of a community feeling if you don't speak Portuguese.
This hostel is in a good location, Botafogo is a really nice place to spend a couple of days of your total stay in Rio! Unfortunately, the staff speaks very bad English and are not really helpfull, there is no good vibe in the common areas and there are actually only Brazilian guests and whole families. So if you are a travellar and looking for a nice place to stay and meet new people, I would not recommand this place!
