Good location near to metro and shops. 10 minutes from copacabana beach. Standard Brazilian breakfast of bread jam cake and cereal. Staff were pretty disorganised, during our stay, but it was fairly busy just after carnival. Very expensive compared with the rest of brazil, but I think that's just rio itself. Could do with a few more toilets and showers though.
Really amazing hostel only about 3 blocks away from Copacabana Beach (5 mins max) and a short walk to Ipanema. All the staff at the hostel at the hostel were amazing, really helpful and friendly. Great breakfast. Really comfy beds and proper power showers. I stayed here for 7 nights and will hopefully stay here again if I return to Rio. 10/10
Very well located hostel. Just a stones through from the beach and centre of Rio. The staff are very helpful and accommodating. The communal area downstairs is very nice as is the filling breakfast which goes on for 2 hours. The beds are extremely comfortable and you get new clean sheets upon arrival. Bring a small lock for the lockers as the holes in the securing chain are only about 5mm wide. Great value tours aswell.
Great all-round hostel. Good location close to the beach, friendly staff, comfortable beds and a decent breakfast. Only downside is there is really no kitchen to cook or fridges to store any drinks/food.
Was pleasantly surprised with my time in a large dorm during carnival. Comfy beds and clean washrooms. Kitchen and fridges aren't made accessible to the guests and the blankets are not washed between users which is a concern. Great location to restaurants and beach!
I stayed during the New Years and it was very popular. Pros: The girl at reception was really nice even after I bothered her with so many questions. Convenient location to Copacabana. Clean beds, AC worked great Cons: The dorm beds were REALLY high, especially the top ones. it makes it hard to get to my stuff, plus the distance between the beds were about elbow length apart
The hostel is located not to far from Copacabana beach only about 4 blocks away which is great. I stayed in a 9 person dorm and it seems they have tried to cram too many beds into one little room, i ended being put in the top of the triple decker bunk bed and there was barely enough space to sit up without hitting your head or any place to keep your luggage on the floor, however each bed had a powerpoint which was good. Breakfast was average bread and jam and cereal. small kitchen.
