    What can I say besides this hostel was a dope experience from the moment I walked in I was welcomed & could feel the V I B E S ! Rio was a last minute trip for me so I needed to find something last minute & I am glad I made this choice! The shared dorm was comfortable & clean as well as the bathrooms! Also the staff was A-1 & big shout out to Fred! Very kind & helpful & good recommendations on the food! Now to the food it was so good & the drinks! The hostel has its own restaurant & bar! 100+

    Wow, such a good hostel! Excellent location in the middle of Lapa, great beds and always clean bathrooms and showers, plus Air conditioning in the dorms. Plus, the FRIENDLIEST STAFF EVER. We wanted to move dorm rooms, which was no problem and they did it right away. When I arrived I was very sick and was laying in the dorm all Day, and Fred came and brought me juice, Water and fruits and was really caring and checking on me. Only minus is it doesnt include breakfast

    I really liked this hostel :) its in a great location - lots of people will tell you its dangerous but its close to good restaurants, samba bar, metro (and blocos during carnival). The staff are really nice and the rooms are good. There's no kitchen unfortunately but their restaurant/bar is good for lunch👍

    186 lapa central saved us in our dire time of need with their last minute availability and incredibly helpful staff - Fred you are a dream! The hostel is located right in the centre of lapa so is in close proximity to everything. With this in mind, the staff also lock the front door and buzz you in to stop random people entering. Would recommend to a friend.

    Great location and really friendly staff, especially Fred. Wasn't much of an atmosphere when I was there but I can imagine there is at other times, during carnival etc. Ensuite shower didn't work when I was there so had to use other. Sofa chillout area upstairs is a nice touch.

    Perfect for carnaval- the included breakfast and dinner was so nice and a great way to meet people. It is indeed very dark but it’s kind of the bare bones aesthetic I guess.

    Very Good

    Really lovely staff and great location. It was quite dark inside which hindered the atmosphere slightly and very loud at night being near busy streets. The shower head was very close to the electrics in the bathroom. That being said we had a great stay there and it was good to be in the centre of some of Rio’s main attractions

    Fred is the best thing about this place, and you get free breakfast and dinner which is cool, and beds are comfy but it can be quite dirty, and the wifi is sooooo bad it doesnt work most of the time, which made trying to find places to go during carnival hard which was such a shame
