Absolutely wonderul place to stay. Some of the hostel workers could have been a little nicer, but everyone else was absolutely wonderful. Great location, a block away from the beach, near public transportation outlets and two blocks away from main shopping/food areas. Worth the stay! More

Very charming staff, always right to you. The hostel is in the middle of a way to the morro, which offers a great view of the Corcovado. The swimming pool is very cool to play around while drinking some shots. Hope to come back very soon. More
