The staff is the biggest asset of this hostel. Everyone waa extremely helpful and positive! Very secure and helpful. They offer tours or they help you with directions.The bar is awesome. Thank you people!


The hostel is right in the middle of Copacabana, just a few blocks away from the beach, subway and everything you may need. The breakfast is simple but hearty and the atmosphere is spot on. The welcome caipirinha you get and the little map with all spots around shows how much they care. If I had to complain about something it would be that the bathrooms and lockers are kinda small. But the few cons are made up by the fantastic staff, and more.They are so helpful and kind! Coming back for sure!


Sehr gutes Hostel mit außergewöhnlich netten Mitarbeitern und einem coolen Schweizer Chef :) Jederzeit wieder dort!


uma equipe boa e um bom ambiente de Hostel, porém o ar desligado cedo e a limpeza fraca são pontos negativos.


I was supposed to stay 10 days in this city, but the whole environment in this hostel with the nicest staff ever, full of good ideas and plans, always available and ready to help and even more, the nicest location close to the best beaches of the city, in a safe area, a good size of 30 beds which is little enough to keep a familial Spirit to this red house, I feel like at home and that's one of the reasons why I stayed longeron this amazing city, muito obrigado galeras ! Beijos Xx


Lockers pequenos, não cabiam nem uma mochila, e café da manhã começava muito tarde!!


Os quartos simplesmente não tracam!!!!!! Achei isso um absurdo! Para completar, durante a noite, passa um vigia entrando no quarto para "verificar" . Teve uma noite em que eu estava sozinha no quarto e acordei gritando com esse tal vigia no meu quarto!!!! As beliches são horríveis e os armários pequenos.


Sehr gutes Hostel, 10min vom Strand entfernt. Sehr sauber und sehr hilfreiches und freundliches Personal. Caipi als Begrüßungsgeschenk, beste! Kann man auf jeden fall weiterempfehlen!!!


the only problem was, that the staff called a taxi, driver was drunk, no official taxi and drive back wards aainst the traffic,


My biggest complaints were: 1) too many mosquitoes, 2) AC and fans were broken so it was very hot, 3) people were allowed to smoke cigarettes in and near the building, so the smell of smoke was common, and 4) pillows need to be replaced. Other than that, the staff was great, Wifi was reliable, and the location was awesome.


No comments at all... Everything was absolutely great. Thanks for making our last days of the trip even better!


You can tell this hostel is run by hostelers. Every time you've been at a hostel and thought - "I really wish the hostel had ____" - they've almost got it all: a small, pocket sized map with translations of common phrases on it, soap in the bathrooms (seems obvious, but usually not standard), TV upstairs running highlights of things to do in the area, etc. They execute all of the little things - and the number one thing: AMAZING staff! Absolutely the most helpful employees I've come across.
