Black White Hostel

Morro de Sao Paulo, Brazil

I loved the location (close to the party place (2nd beach) and relaxing place (4th beach). The room was good and clean, breakfast was very good too! There are restaurants and supermarkets close to it. The only thing that could be improved is that the drain in our bathroom did not worked 100% and it got a bit flooded during shower. But it´s great value for money, I would stay there again and recommend specially for the location!

Hostel Pousada Pais Tropical

Salvador, Brazil

We paid 50 reais per night each and I think it could be a bit cleaner; there was rubbish under our beds... The sheets looked clean. Breakfast was really good and the staff was helpful. It is located in a neighborhood that is a bit dangerous when sunlight is gone. For 30 reais more (80 per night) we moved to a 4 star hotel (Sol Victoria Marina). So if you have budget to spend a bit more, there are better places to stay. If your budget is limited, this hostel is quite ok.

The LightHouse

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I had a nice stay, the staff is very helpful and easygoing. Great location, close to the beach, underground, bars, supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants etc. They clean the room everyday! The toilets and showers were always clean as well. The room has air conditioning. Points that could improve - a bit expensive compared to other hostels, especially those located in Copacabana. It is located in a very old house which would look better if it was repaired; the bed linen looks a bit old.

Generator Hostel Hamburg

Hamburg, Germany

Great location, very close to the main train and bus stations as well as to the city center. Clean place, free wifi. Brekfast is charged apart. It would be nice if the staff gave more tips about the city and also about the hostel, for instance, there was a common bathroom in each floor besides ofthe bathroom inside the room, but we only found out when other travelers advised us. Totally recommend!

Pousada Canto Verde

Ilha Grande, Brazil

Nice atmosphere, nice breakfast, good place to relax. Big room, cleaned every day. 3 min walk from the city center. The only thing that I did not like is that I tried to contact them by email and phone before travelling and nobody replied me. Apart from that, it´s a nice place to stay!


Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Nice hostel, new furniture. Great location, it´s in the best part of Copacabana and quite close to Ipanema (15 min walk). The staff is very helpful and gives lots of tips about places to visit.

Backpackers Rota do Sol

Florianopolis, Brazil

This is not a hostel. It is a pension. Most of the people are not travellers, but actually live there. There is one bathroom for everybody, and it is VERY dirty. No breakfast included. When we arrived, nobody was aware of our reservation. The entrance is dark. There are no lockers and sometimes the entrance doors were opened. Does not seems safe. Except for the location, we do not recommend this place.

Desculpe-me Gabriela, mas é sim um hostel, em 2 anos mais de 700 pessoas já se hospedaram no Rota do Sol, e não há 1 só banheiro para todos, são 2 banheiros, 1 feminino e outro masculino. Não servimos café da manhã e também nunca anunciamos esse serviço. Sim, na baixa temporada mantemos a porta fechada a maioria do tempo, é nossa preferência atender reservas on-line e telefonicas. Sim pessoas moram no hostel, é um habito comum de milhares de hostels no mundo inteiro, para manter aberto durante o ano, no período de baixa temporada. A entrada já está iluminada e é comum brasileiros não se sentirem seguros, pois carregamos muitas histórias de violência em nossas cidades natais.

Zen-Do Guest House

Buzios, Brazil

We had a great experience there! The location is excellent, 7 minutes walk to the city center, very close to the best beaches (5 min walk) and the bus stop (1 min walk). The owner of the place (Yesha) is a very interesting and nice person, she gave us several tips about which places we should visit! The house is very beautiful, clean, the rooms have air conditioning, TV, towels, everything a backpacker needs! Great place to relax (not a party place). Delicious breakfast. We definitely recommend

CabanaCopa Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The room was good, cleaned everyday. The toilet was ok, cleaned twice a day, sometimes it became a bit dirty during the evening. The breakfast is really good, as well as the location (although you have to climb a hill to get there). It is close to the beach, to the supermarkets and several shops. The staff speaks good english and spanish, I only missed more local people to give us tips about Rio de Janeiro, once most of them are from abroad. Good experience though.

We are glad to hear you like our cleanliness, breakfast and location. Some of the shared bathrooms can get messy depending on guest's use. We are planning on adding one more night cleaning shift, to improve service quality. We try to have a good mix of international staff & different ages to create a traveller atmosphere and have made sure to give them the best tips possible about Rio. Best regards! CabanaCopa staff

Cowgate Tourist Hostel

Edinburgh, Scotland

The location in great, the prices are cheap. On Saturday the hostel was really busy so the room, the kitchen and the bathroom were really dirty. On Sunday they cleaned everything and it was pleasent. There is a pub just in front with live music, so dont stay in this hostel if you want to sleep early. There are no lockers, neither breakfast. The Internet and computers are free for guests, there is also free tea and coffee.

Hyde Park Hostel

London, England

The location is really good, the rooms are good as well. Unfortunatelly the hostel does not offer breakfast and charge you for lugagge storage, wi-fi etc. The bathroom is not really good... The staff was helpful and nice.

Bunk House Hostel

Dublin, Ireland

The location is good. However, there was no soap in any bathroom, the oven was broken, as well as the fridge and the key from my room. The duvet and the pillow were old and dirty. I wouldnt recommend this hostel, except fot the location (very good, right in the city center and close to supermarkets) and the cheap price.

Smart Russell Square Hostel

London, England

Excelent location, the staff was very kind and helpful, the only thing that should be improved is that there are no lockers.
