Loved Harmonia! By far the best hostel I've stayed at in Rio. It's small and quaint. The staff is wildly knowledgeable and the rooms are spacious and clean.

If you're looking to have a good time and meet foreigners, this is the place to stay. The hostel is very close to the beach and the staff is kind and as attentive as they can be with so many guests. Gaston is wonderful. The only regret is that the rooms are tight. The room I stayed in, with 9 people, had triple bunk beds and with other traveler's backpacks on the floor, there was little room to walk. The four showers in the establishment are also probably not enough for the number of guests.

The staff was not very helpful and knew no Portuguese in a Portuguese-speaking country. Location is good, right by the Siqueira Campos metrô station and 4 blocks from Copacabana beach. I would have the hostel higher ratings had they not allowed four guys, without a previous reservation, to move into the room at 3 in the morning the night before the other three people in the room were running the Rio half marathon. No hostel should just accept people at 3 am. This is poor security.
