    Best equipped hostel I’ve ever stayed at. Sea views from every dorm, had a WhatsApp group that everyone joins when they arrive. Has every amenity a traveller needs, from laundry, breakfast, tours and even a barber who comes once a week.

    The best hostel in Rio! Marielle and her family are wonderful — the beds are comfortable and private, and the hostel is super social. Had great nights out with everyone. Loved it. Will be returning! Stay here in Rio

    I stayed in that Hostel 2 weeks ago. I have traveled a lot, and I have stayed at many hostels in my life. Aquarela is probably the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The facility is amazing. The breakfast was the highlight of the day haha. And I really need to highlight the owners. I never met so nice, kind and motivated owners of a hostel that care so much for their guests. In 2 weeks I’m planning to go back! Greetings from Germany!

    This is truely the best hostell I have ever stayed in. So clean, quiet, amazing breakfest, close to the beach, the best atmosphere and the owners Marielle and Thibaut (and their three beautiful little kids) make you feel so welcome, safe, included and you never feel alone. They help you in any way they can, and the other people working there are also so kind, loving and helpfull. My new home away from home, and my number one reason to going back to Rio. They also have different activities planned each day t

    By far one of the best hostels I have ever been in my life. The dorms manage to give you as much privacy as posible for a dorm (big lockers or your luggage, curtains in all beds, private lights and sockets, little shelves on your feet); the breakfast is great for the value and the view from every room and terrace is just stunning. The hostel is up a hill in Leme (short walk), which is a perfect spot to go anywhere in town. The best part is easily the staff, which is incredible helpful and kind.

    Absolutely love this hostel, everyone was so friendly and the breakfast was really nice. There was a little spot on the patio where I could read my book, drink coffee, and look out at the ocean. It was fantastic.

    Great place to stay with friendly staff and comfortable and clean bathrooms. Negative point is only that is on top of a hill so kinda difficult to walk there. But nothing impossible just a minor setback.

    Aquarela do Leme is expertly managed. Thibault and his staff are wonderfully welcoming and make every visit personalized for a guest. Additionally, the facilities are well kept and the location is wonderful (it's quiet and authentic but has a short walk to the wilder parts of the beach). The tours they run out of the hostel and effort they make to insure guests feel welcomed to the city is absolutely remarkable. I've rarely seen that level of dedication at any hostel before.

    We loved this hostel. The roof terrace and communal areas are beautiful, and the breakfast was incredible. The view from the roof and balconies is amazing too. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The neighbourhood is friendly and safe and felt easy to be in, although it is a bit of a journey to reach the sights from there as although they’re not far, the roads get quite slow. We were made very welcome and would definitely like to come back!
