We have been travelling for 11 months and Books is easily one of the best hostels we have stayed in. The staff are amazing (Philipe and his beard are incredible, the facilities (bathroom/kitchen) are well equipped and very clean and the beds are super comfy. The atmosphere is awesome - definitely do not stay here if you want to get a lot of sleep - but it is a great place to meet people and party! If you are staying in Rio, do yourself a favour and stay at Books - awesome hostel!
We had an awesome time at this hostel! The location is perfect, it has a great common room and comfy beds! The bathrooms are a little average but what it lacks in facilities they make up with the staff and atmosphere - the staff make this place feel like a second home! Thanks guys!
The hostel is an a great location, it clean, the staff are super friendly and helpful. The facilities are all really good. Maybe slightly overpriced (we were hear during Semana Santa which may explain the price).
