    Best experience with a hostel yet. The owners really thought of everything that you need to be fully comfortable during your stay. The whole place is very clean and the breakfast is the best I’ve experienced from a hostel breakfast. The pod style dorms are very comfortable with plenty of room to keep your stuff organized. Highly recommend

    2nd time at this gem near Leme and Copacabana beach. The hostel is located in a pacified favela - which might sound scary but it’s safe and I’ve never felt uncomfortable walking on the streets there, even alone. You will read that some Uber drivers are scared and cancel - that’s true but then the next Uber just comes. For Brazilian just the thought of favela is scary, even if it’s fine now. Hostel: one of the best I’ve ever been to. With the kindest owners. Felt like home returning there.

    Aquarela do Leme Hostel, Had a wonderful stay, great modern desisgn, architecture, and fixtures. Dorm with curtains, shelves, lights, electrical plugs, plus lockable storage lockers, the co-work nicely adequate with great A/C, next to large dining room and tight yet adequate common kitchen. Nice Buffet breakfast to get your day started ! Clean and spacious hostel on the hill side, 24 hr. Rooftop w/parties, with sea view of ships anchored over night … 3/2022 … Larry Leaf, of Oklahoma, USA .

    Very unique location in a favela, like the other comments say it is safe. Hostel is secure, very nice, staff are very friendly, they have a bar and a buffet breakfast every morning. There was always someone coming around to sign you up on hikes/tours but they all seemed quite expensive? Bed had curtains and was big enough for our backpacks. Plenty of shelves and chargers. Room also had a balcony.
