Fantastic hostel with large common areas including a bar and outdoor area. Well-equipped, big kitchen and great breakfast. The staff were absolutely lovely and helped us with every question we had. Only downside was the hostel was sometimes cold and doors were left open, but would highly recommend.
Very nice, new and clean apartment with basic facilities. We stayed one night and had the apartment to ourselves most of the time. The owner was lovely and very helpful, offered to walk us to the bus stop and supermarket.
Great hostel, very clean and new. Staff were excellent and very helpful. Each bed comes with a locker for large luggage as well as a private small locker in the bunk for your valuables. Location could not have been better, right in the heart of the historic center.
Staff were absolutely amazing, helped us with everything we needed and were always friendly. Breakfast was good, rooms and bathrooms were clean, and there were lockers in the rooms to place your bags. The showers were the best we've had in Brazil! Highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.
Overall quite a nice hostel with a friendly owner and clean rooms, bathrooms and kitchen. We were unsure about the location upon finding out it was within a favela but once we were there we felt perfectly safe. The hostel is located very close to one of the best views of Rio and it's only a short walk to ipanema beach. Not much of an atmosphere though even during the World Cup.
