    The BEST hostel I've ever stayed at. Booked for one night to settle in Rio, stayed for 2 weeks. Thibaut and Marielle are running a super clean gaff with great atmosphere in Leme, a safe part of town. Nothing but good vibes from everyone at the hostel. Location and facilities are perfect, and the guys will bend over backwards to help you out in any way they can, from booking footy matches, to helping book your flights, to ordering me a knee brace! Can't thank these guys enough! See you next year!

    Very great place. Close to a beach. Very clean and the most helpful staff I have ever seen. Their is alot of English speeches. It attracted very social people, but people that will not barge into the room at 3 and wake you up.

    Great hostel with everything needed to enjoy Rio. It’s location fringes on a favela but don’t let that deter you as there are no security issues at all, I was walking to/from the hostel during evening hours and never had a problem. Decent breakfast spread provided is also top notch. My only criticism is no fans in the dorms or common areas/bathrooms. In summer fans are really needed for the hours that air conditioning is running as Rio summers are hot and humid!

    We stayed 5 nights over new year's and it was amazing. The room (private) was the same price as a hotel but the quality did not disappoint, beautiful design, balcony with a hamac, etc. Great location, 10ish min walk to the Leme beach and Copacabana. We were concerned about it being in a comunidade but it was fine. Great hostel, it made our stay in Rio unforgettable!

    One of the best breakfasts in a hostel that I have ever had. Very close to the beach. Friendly staff. However, the bathroom floors were not clean at all when I stayed there, the prices for activities and drinks and much higher than other hostels, and the owner is a family with three kids running around and toys everywhere. But again, the breakfast was unreal!

    Stayed in private room which was excellent. Amazing first hostel of our trip, felt very safe and welcome. It is slightly up a hill but nothing to worry about. We got Uber’s from just down the road and was fine. Pizza place across the road is excellent and the rooftop is a lovely place to relax in the day and evening. The owners are so nice and just want you to have the best possible trip. Leme is a nice area to explore and gives you chance to go North and South of Rio very easily. Recommend!
