Very nice quiet surrounding, but close to city centre. This is a place where you have to stay when you are on Ilha Grande.
I really liked this hostel. The staff were all really nice and friendly. They were absolutely helpful when you had questions, but also they were giving advices. We have been here for a few nights. After that we were traveling further. When we came back we decided to stay in another part of Rio de Janeiro. However if you want to be around the Copacabana, this is definitely a good place to stay!
Friendly staff, room with lot of space. Good location near Bus/Metro-station. Stayed there for just one night. Only problem was that the shower was broken, and I unfortunately had no hot water (was at 5 in morning).
Nice place if you want to party... However maybe a little bit too much trying to get you on the activities and asking why not if you don't. Further very helpfull, easy too meet people, very clean hostel, maybe a little bit more showers would have been nice. Also WIFI on second floor would be nice, although there were enough computers etc.
Really friendly staff, helpful, and they asked directly what time we would have (really good) breakfast. They also made coffee when we asked for it. Very clean accommodation and a lot of space. Nice location to visit the National Park, and nice quiet place to hang around in the garden. It is easy to go to Pärnu if you have a car (so drinking not recommended ;)). Highly recommended place to stay and I would definitely recommend this place.
