Had one of the best weeks ever! Awesome staff, and seems to attract fun, social people. Happy Hour (2 for 1 caipirinhas) every night, and nights out arranged through reception. Also walking distance for the amazing Lapa street party. At the weekend, the staff took us to the Maracana for a football match. Even walked us to a restaurant when we asked for a recommendation. Lapa is about 20 minutes from Copacabana by bus and not as nice an area as Ipanema, but the hostel is very reasonably priced.

Went here based on many recommendations and wasn't disappointed. Cool location, with a view of the lagoon, but a short walk from the beach. In contrast, some other hostels are located on the beaches themselves. The hostel arranges a night out every night and a day trip every day, which are great ways to meet people if travelling alone. Also has an awesome all-you-can-eat buffet lunch for 15 reais. The place also boasts some of the best staff I came across in SA. A great group of people.
