20 minutes walk from the city centre, very quiet location and also close to the supermarket, restaurants and bars. Staff were helpful, kitchen was well stocked and common area was great. Would stay here again!

Breakfast on the beach was a highlight, and the bar on the beach was great during the world cup with everyone gathered around to watch the matches. It's a short 10 minute walk to the city centre and around 15 minutes to walk to the bus station. The hostel staff are very friendly! The only downside is that the WiFi didn't work 80% of the time.

Had a great stay here during the world cup, the staff put on the matches on two TVs and a big screen projector in the common area and around the bar. There was plenty of food for breakfast - ham and cheese, bread, fruit and juices. The location was good, about 10 minutes walk from the nearest metro station, with supermarkets nearby, as well as a great churrascaria across the road. It's a short taxi ride to Vila Madalena too.

We really loved the hostel, Helen and the team made us feel really at home, and she helped us pick tours to go on too. There are tables all around the pool area to sit, and hammocks lying around the place too which are good as long as it's not raining. Our room was quite big and the fridge in the room was a nice touch. The hostel is located about 7-10 minutes to town which isn't too bad either. The hostel organises a pizza night and BBQ night which are both worth attending.
