    Stayed during Carnaval, great stay! Pros: nice staff, free caipirinhas in evening, hot shower-cons: towels for rent, no kitchen, beds not comfy, common space lacking. I feel like they could do more for this hostel to make it more comfortable/homey, esp in the common area. Bc of the one main common space it was very social. Not sure about value for $ since I was here during Carnaval and prices were inflated. 20p dorm was spacious, plenty of room for bags etc., but hooks for towels would be nice.

    Private room was spacious & clean! With big ensuite & balcony & the aircon worked a treat. The location was amazing, right in the heart of Lapa surrounded by bars & restaurants - a really lively fun area. There was a police station opposite which was reassuring for safety & a metro station 5 mins walk away. All the staff were so lovely & made us feel very welcome, with some speaking perfect english. Big up Fred for narrowly beating us at coin football - you da man. This is the place to stay!!!

    Really great location and friendly helpful staff. Free caprihinas were very nice. 20 man dorm quite grim some of the beds weirdly bent, lockers very flimsy easily ripped open if smallest amount of effort put in. Air con was broken and windows open meaning lots of mosquitos were about.
