Perfect location in the old town, it's worth paying the extra money to stay in there. Had an amazing 2 nights here, free grapa leads to a brilliant atmosphere and you also get great advice on when and what to do. Dorms are a little bit cramped but otherwise brilliant!
Amazing place to base yourself in hvar. The staff had some great recommendations on where to go and plan my journey to Dubrovnik as the ferry was sold out. Lost a couple of days sight seeing due to partying to hard here.
Decent location in the middle of town and nice and clean. Excellent wifi coverage throughout. Staff were able to give good advice on getting around to next destination as well. Atmosphere wasn't amazing in there but plenty of people to meet on the pub crawls anyway.
It was expensive during our visit and had to block book due to the world cup. Good bar to meet everyone else at the hostel to plan a night out. The staff are really helpful, will invite you out with them or advise you on where else to go. Decent location next to the centre of Leblon and when the metro station opens this will be excellent to get around from. 2 problems: air con was out of action in my room for the entire stay and some of the showers were cold water only. Would stay here again!
Location wise not too bad as right next to Botafogo metro so easy to get around everywhere, but Botafogo isn't the greatest part of Rio. It is a very cramped in the dorms, they've squeezed as many beds in as they can and not too many toilets/ showers for everyone to use. The staff were friendly enough, but couldn't give a great insight on what to do on nights out etc so you were very much left to go somewhere and hope it was good.
Close to downtown and the theatre but not the nicest area. Staff were good and helpful, but for the price we paid would have expected more. Showers were all poor and unclean.
Good place to stay if you're in a group but not as a solo traveller.
