One of the better hostels to stay at in Rio. Just a concern that the staff never knew which beds were occupied and by whom (but in fairness this was during WC month), some people staying at the back packers never had breakfast, once it was finished, there wasn't any additional breakfast made for people who never received any, hostel can work on this. Wifi was good, bathroom facilities too, rooms very spacious. Would return and recommend.
Hostel messed up our booking, we had to wait in the foyer for more than an hour to find out booking was there, but not identified. Place and rooms are really cramp and lack space. Pros :decent breakfast, well located, there organized tours and other events. Did not have a good experience.
By far the best hostel we stayed at in Brazil. Beautiful views that greet you in the morning, more than decent breakfast. The Staff (Gabriel, Nicky, Ali etc) were all tremendous, warm, helpful, passionate and very professional. Always trying to arrange and organize events to keep people entertained. Pity it rained most part of our stay. We shall return to the hostel in the near future. Thank you Barra Beach Club, for giving us a good Floripa experience.
