The bunk bed broke on the first night. They weren't surprised, which makes me think this isn't a one-off occurrence. There was no running water for 2+ days, I'm not usually fussy with these things but they didn't offer an alternate option for showering etc. They say no curfew but the people that work the nights end up sleeping in the common room so you have to YELL to get them to open the door. Other than this, it's super cheap, has aircon, Sophie the cleaning lady always has a killer smile!
We stayed here during the Carnivale week. So close to the beach! Bar good- they had nights with free beer/caiprihanas, kitchen good, rooms with air-con - a little cramped though. Staff had a tendency to be a little unapproachable and sometimes not as knowledgeable as you could expect.
A bit dull - no real common area. It's great if you just want a quiet place to keep to yourself. The staff were super knowledgeable about things to do in Rio, which was great! Cleanliness good, kitchen, beds fine. Standard.
The hostel has potential but it seems they are missing something... the atmosphere was a bit of a let down. Staff were hit and miss, some really great staff, and others were unapproachable. Rooms were cramped and lockers were tiny! But that doesnt really bother me so much as the lack of vibe...
A bit quiet, but if you want to get rowdy with friends then there's a rooftop bar that you can go up to. Good location in the affluent part of MC. Kitchen, lots of SPACE. Staff are helpful. Free breakfast is pretty average. Bar next door is cool - a hangout for the locals. Great art on the walls makes for a cool atmosphere.
