Perfect for a budget stay in Rio. The cosiness and homely feel makes up for lack of luxury. Breakfast was great, wifi worked fine. The communal areas were cool. The walk up the hill is steep, but if you don't mind walking its fine. The beds have wierd plastic on them but I could live with it! All in all had a good experience and it was definitely good value.
Really social, friendly hostel. Great breakfast
Great hostel, located perfectly on Pituba, close enough to walk to all the main beaches/restsurants/shops. A very cool social atmosphere, even though I was there in the quiet season and they're weren't many people there.
