    Very well located hostel. The staff was super friendly and it was very secure. The lockers were under the beds and extra secure. It is a party hostel so there is a lot of people at night, but they place a separation between the beds area and the bar space, so it helps! I would recommend for sure!

    Fantastic hostel. Great staff that were very helpful and so friendly. Amazing breakfast. Very very clean. Privacy in the beds. Huge secure lockers fitting all our bags. Balcony in each room. Great views and lovely roof top. Interesting daily & evening activities run by David. Be surprised if we find a better hostel in all of South America.

    This hostel was beautiful, clean, and the staff were amazing! There were great views of the water and only a 10 minute walk from the beach. We also had no problem getting Ubers to pick up and drop off from the hostel. We loved our stay.

    LOVED my stay at Aquarela. Everyone is just really warm and friendly. It has a family culture and you're bound to meet other travelers and connect in really meaningful ways.

    The owners of this hostel are really nice and sweet! I really enjoyed my stay here. Very clean, bright and roomy place. I like hostels that have curtains on bunk beds for privacy. They have delicious and cheap drinks. The location is kinda up on a hill, so Uber drivers might feel unsafe to go up thinking it's a dangerous favela, but I personally felt pretty safe there. Would recommend this hostel!

    Absolutely beautiful hostel—probably the nicest I’ve ever been to. The family that own the hostel and live there are fantastic. It is really cool to live there with the owners, their two young sons and their really cute pup. I personally think they should make it a little bit more fun there with events, a BBQ on the beautiful roof, happy hour drinks etc. There is a lot of unused common space and the hostel is not very social in comparison to many others I’ve stayed at.

    Best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. So beautiful, great views, great breakfast! Each bed has a curtain, a little reading light, shelves to store stuff plus locker under bed. The design of this hostel really covers everything you could need - so well-thought out. It was cool to live say we lived in a favela (it was totally safe though haha). Shoutout to Luis for being so helpful!
