This is honestly the best hostel I've ever stayed at. I was a bit skeptical after reading all of the raving reviews, but from the moment we walked through the door of this small, 15-bed hostel, we felt welcomed into a family. Within minutes we knew all of the staff and all of the other backpackers, went out together almost every night, and got great advice on not only what to do in the city, but what it's really like to be from Rio. :) Definitely staying here every time I end up in Rio.

This is a beautiful hostel, right at the edge of the town and the jungle - it feels like a $400/night vacation resort, honestly. The location is great, since town is tiny, and you get to escape the noise; they cooked dinner almost every night, and it was very easy to meet other people at the hostel. The rooms were incredibly comfortable and clean. There were hammocks strung up everywhere, and overall, just a fantastic place to live and relax.
