Really nice set up in a cool neighbourhood. Many different types of restaurants and bars in the streets around the hostel. An easy 10 minute walk to the subway (Ana Rosa station) which has 2 different lines (blue and green). Very good and attentive staff. Excellent breakfast. It is a very nice option for those who go to São Paulo on business or for events but don't feel like having to pay an arm and a leg just to sleep at a fancy hotel.
Brand new hostel located in a well-to-do area of Rio, not too far from the Cristo Redentor train and van stations, with great public transportation links (bus and metro). The lunch offered at the hostel is of a decent value and excellent in quality. The staff are super helpful and informative and really try to make your stay in their city as enjoyable as it possibly can be.
This has to be, without a doubt, the best hostel I have ever stayed at in Brazil. The beautiful location, amazingly warm and attentive staff, great options that they offered of activities as well as the nightly dinners made by the Italian chef were all factors that made this stay one of my most pleasurable. The hostel is not very big in terms of capacity, so I never felt overwhelmed by a large number of guests. Automatic vacation mode as soon as you see the view from the Tower Bar :)
This is a very nice place that's located in an easy-to-get-to and beautiful area of the city. The photos placed on Hostel World are exactly what you have in front of you when you arrive. This along with the very attentive staff make for a wonderful atmosphere. They really do want that your stay in Rio be an unforgettable one.
The hostel was located in an easy-to-get-to location, albeit a bit distant from the "happening" places of Rio. The staff were very friendly and paid a lot of attention to the well-being of the guests. I would definitely stay there again.
