    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.

    In the room you are provided with a safety locker, so we left our valuables and bags in these, put our own lock on it and left for a few hours. Upon our return our locker had had its hinges ripped off and the valuables stolen. Including my passport so we missed our flight and are unable to leave Brazil currently. Another guest had broken into the locker and then left. Having stayed at other hostels, the lockers here where by far be worst, just a thin wooden cupboard.

    If you are a foreigner and do not speak Portuguese, stay away. This is a locals hostel and there is a high likely hood that no one can communicate in English. My booked dorm room bed was oversold. I was then put in a mixed twenty bed dorm at 3am in the morning. The dorms were stuffy and the bathrooms had absolutely no ventilation. In the morning, I found that the WIFi was also down. Had to change hostels. You will have better luck at Books Hostel a few blocks away. It is awesome!
