it's a really new and clean hostel. they also got this super high triple sleepers and the room is quite small. but that's normal for rio. the stuff was very nice and helpful. we liked to stay there. the kitchen is a bit small, can't really recommend it for cooking. the bathroom was always perfectly clean.
it's a bit up the hill, about 10 mins to the beach. but it's really worth it! it's in the middle of this wonderful green garden, a paradise!! we stayed in the girl's dorm, which is really big, with nice wooden floor and glass windows all around. the bathroom was extremely clean. and they've got a proper shower! breakfast was good. the owner also speaks german. we were the only ones in the first night, so it's not really a place to meet people. if you want to relax in the nature, it's great.
the owner are very nice, christina is also cooking for everybody sometimes. very good and cheap dinner! there were a lot of other backpackers you can get in contact with. it was nice to hang out in the living room. it's close to the beach and village center. we stayed in the 6 bed female dorm. i can't really recommend that room, it's was bit smelly and very small. the 4 bed dorms are much better!! make sure you get one of these.
the stuff was extremely nice and helpful!!! it was really great to stay there. the location is good, about 10 mins to the beach. we felt very safe. i can only say thank you for 5 very nice days!!!!
