The surrounding area seemed rough and we felt unsafe walking around. Staff seemed uninterested in communicating. The breakfast was okay and the drinks fridge in reception was good. We were able to store our luggage there for 5 days for free which was helpful. The air on in the room was a little noisy but very cool. The shower was also good, but the toilet in our first room didn't seem to really flush. It was fine for an overnight, you can surely find somewhere else better value for money
Good location if you want to party in Lapa, but not for general sightseeing, good happy half hour and friendly staff. Pool table was a bonus but a little run down, photos give it more credit. Room (double) was a bit cramped but had a TV and great private bathroom. As a couple maybe not the best place for us but perfect if you're a party animal. A although, the market held right outside on a Saturday was incredible.
The atmosphere was awesome, thanks to the lovely staff and great way it is run. It was perfect apart from the area being a little threatening (security at discovery was wonderful though) and all of rio being expensive! The staff were so helpful and friendly, breakfast was great. They play music and the hostel is sooo pretty and layed out in an open and sociable way. Bar was good (Enrique's cocktails are to die for). Would definitely come back again, thanks everyone!
Great location, great atmosphere and lovely staff. Fairly expensive, but all of Ipanema tends to be that way, it's worth it to be so close to the beach! Very small hostel, but that helped make a friendly atmosphere. Sylvia and Marco are crazy but wonderful and so very helpful. Would definitely stay again if we ever get the chance to go back to Rio. We were made to feel absolutely at home , thankyou!
