Comfortable rooms/beds, cleans, good location near lots of bars and restaurants on Brunswick Street. There are heaters in the room but I was there in June and the common areas are absolutely freezing in the morning. Usually have activities in the evenings.
Great location and helpful staff. No breakfast and lockers in room don't lock.
More like a motel. Good rooms, comfortable bed, very good breakfast, terrible wifi (doesn't work in the rooms, barely works in the lobby). They'll pick you up from the airport if you email them before.
If I weren't sick I would've really liked this place. It's basically a party at all times, but being sick I just wanted to sleep and that's not easy to do because this place is loud. I liked the location but friends of mine from BA said I should have state in Soho and when I went there its hard to argue. The area the hostel is in is a little gritty but I never felt unsafe. Also, beware the porno theaters next door. You can hear them from some of the bathrooms.
Loved this place. Great people, great staff, great atmosphere that makes it really easy to meet people. Right near copacabana, when I first got there I was a little worried about the location but never felt close to unsafe. Only issue was there was loud music playing right outside my window in the morning both days that woke me up.
