Really social place, perfect spot for a solo traveler. There are different activities every night and you can book different tours here as well. The staff is absolutely amazing, funny and very helpful. Walking distance to all the bars, restaurants and markets. Stayed here for three nights and returned again. Can't go wrong with this place.

Such a great place to relax and yet socialize. One of the most comfortable beds I have had in South East Asia. The staff and especially the owner Amy are vey welcoming and they went out of their way to organize a volunteering program for me. Absolutely loved here, would stay here anytime.

Perfect place to meet people and take part in daily activities. Very friendly staff. It's a little further out, not a problem if you use uber or have a scooter.

Positive: Friendly staff. That's unfortunately it. It seems like this place has been abandoned and everything is falling apart. The table with the free instant coffee was absolutely disgusting. Prices at the bar are way too expensive. The all you can eat BBQ for 150 B was a joke. We were told by the owner that it started 40 mins ago and that's why there is no fish left but that there was plenty of food. If you call a couple of cold chicken wings and ribs plenty, then I can't agree with you.

Perfect location with walking distance to all the bars / restaurants and sights. Got upgraded to a 2 bed dorm without any extra cost. Lovely And helpful family. The common area is at the entrance, so easy to link other travelers.

Nothing to complain. Stayed in a 3 bed dorm, it was clean and spacious. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Really easy to meet other people during the free beer or spring roll sessions. Perfect place to stay and explore the city.

Night staff isn't the friendliest but everyone else is very helpful. Breakfast gives you three options to choose from, gets boring after a couple of days. No common area but a roof top bar, makes it a little hard if you are a solo traveler. Booked Halong Bay tour and it was perfectly organized, Sapa tour was not worth the money. Worth the money for sure.

Perfect location, walking distance to great bars and restaurant. The staff is really friendly and helpfull, Andres goes beyond his ways to help and find the answer to any question asked. The rooftop is a plus. The only negative factor is the breakfast (toast, jam and cornflakes), Eventhough the coffee tastes good. Overall a great place to stay

Stayed here for 2 nights, the pool area is great to meet cotravellers, the supermarket across the street is a big plus. It's clean and I really liked my time here

I have stayed in many hostels but this Hostel has by far the unfriendliest staff. You never see them smile or say hello. On two nights there was no staff, the door is always open and you can't lock the dorm rooms. So it would have been easy for anyone to walk in. The breakfast is amazing but if you get there after 8:30 am, barely anything gets filled up. Other than that the hostel is close to the pier, the supermarket and the beds are comfy.

This hostel has it all! Great location, walking distance to the party area, metro station and the supermarket. Only a 10 min subway ride to the Ipanema beach. The staff is incredibly helpful, funny and interested in creating a great atmosphere and the breakfast is great vIt's so easy to meet your cotravellers and go out with them, as the staff organizes events. Loved it and really glad that I stayed there. Perfect location if you're travelling alone.

The location is amazing, only a 10 minute walk from the subway station and a couple of blocks from the bar streets of Vila Madalena. The staff is super friendly and always smiling and willing to help out with anything. Especially Sergio was the perfect guide, would not have explored São Paulo that well without him. Never seen a hostel being cleaned so thoroughly. Can really recommend this hostel.

Great location, close to everything you need. The hostel is huge and therefore it's hard to meet people. There's actually no vibe. Plus because of the huge size of the hostel the staff can't keep track of the guests which leads to a lack of security. If you're travelling by yourself you're better of staying somewhere else
