Discovery was by far the best hostel we have stayed at, Enrique and his staff were extremely helpful and made the place feel like a home away from home. Great bar and outdoor courtyard and all the other amenities that you expect from a great hostel. We also booked transfers and excursions More

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. As a solo female traveler I felt 100% safe in the hostel and the neighborhood. Close to the Metro, downtown Rio, restaurants and shops. Excellent location. If you are not a fan of heights, be sure to ask for a lower bunk because the high ones More

I was staying for one night in one of the Misti hostels and it sucked. They were overbooked and canceled my booking so I randomly landed in the walk on the beach. My time here was amazing. The staff is incredibly nice, especially Alessandra and Bo, the owner. If you need help with anything More

We'd like to thank the excellent staff at Che Lagarto, Santa Clara for making us feel so welcome. It makes such a difference when you are a long way from home. The staff were incredible; the location perfect for the beach and the hostel was extremely clean with a wonderful atmosphere. More

Very good breakfast, very caring staff and a beautiful breakfast area/lounge. The rooms are clean and big enough for the number of people sleeping in there. No additional equipment like pool, billard, books etc. Too expensive in my opinion. More

It's a good Hostel. Great location. 1.5 block from the Ipanema beach and very near Copacabana (by bike, bus, taxi, etc). At relative wkg distance to the subway (~ 15 minutes) and in a apparently very safe area from Rio. Cleanliness is also a strong point. It's very tidy (specially for More
