Really friendly and welcoming owners who can help you with everything you need. Kitchen is well-stocked and breakfast included is a big plus. The only downside was the limited number of bathrooms, which got dirty quite quickly because of the number of people using them.

The hostel is located on top of a hill overlooking the lake with a beautiful view. The downside is that you have to pay for a boat everyday to get into town and walk up a steep hill to the hostel. The room was a private cabin and was spacious and clean. There is a restaurant/bar at the hostel but it is much more expensive than those in town and you can't bring your own food or drinks. The owner was helpful but seemed to be all about money & getting an extra cent out of you.

Hostel Rio Playa, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

5th Feb 2016

This hostel is in a great location and the staff were friendly and helpful. However the rooftop shower is the most disgusting shower we've seen in 20 months of traveling. It's dirty, small, located in an outdoor shack, has no where to hang towels or clothes and absolutely stinks. The toilet isn't much better. The neighbouring restaurants and bars play loud music until late so bring ear plugs. We paid for a 5 bed dorm but were instead put in a cramped 6 bed dorm. Breakfast was better than most.

Great location and beautifully designed hostel. There's a bar if you want a drink but the atmosphere is very relaxed which we liked.

The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. Room and bathroom were both clean and kitchen was well equipped. Facilities, shower and breakfast were nothing special but for the price there's nothing to complain about. Location to bus stop was great and there's a convenience store right next door to the hostel. Would recommend.

The pool area, bar and kitchen were all great places to hang out and meet other travellers. Room was clean but since it only had a fan it got very hot. Bathroom was clean but the showers were terrible. Good location close to a bus stop and supermarket.

Dear Traveller, Thanks for your nice review, we are glad you liked our pool, bar and kitchen! All of them has been purpose built to allow an easier interaction between people! It s strange you found clean the bathrooms and less clean the showers as are cleaned at the same time (every few hours all day long) so you may were just unluky with the previous person using the shower Hope you'll enjoy the rest of your trip and come back soon to S.Marta! Dreamer Hostel team.

This was the best hostel we've stayed at in our 6 months traveling in South America. The staff were great especially the girl on the morning shift who was always smiling, friendly and helpful. We organised all our activities through the hostel and couldn't recommend these enough. The double room was spacious and clean with a balcony overlooking the main square. The terrance and pool are great areas to hang out and meet other travellers. The steak at the restaurant really is amazing.

Staff were friendly and helpful, and the dorm was quite spacious. There were not enough bathrooms for all the guests though and the kitchen utensils were continuously used by staff and then not cleaned. Location was good, close to a supermarket and within walking distance to the main square and the sights of the historic centre. Breakfast is basic (rolls and jam) but the rolls were fresh straight from the oven each morning.

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.
