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.
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.
