    Probably the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Super clean and tidy. The owners and the staff are super nice, very helpful. The rooftop is a perfect place to chill. The area is pretty cool as well, on a hill not far from the beach.

    One of the best hostels I've ever had the pleasure of staying at. Family run, welcoming and helpful, clean and comfortable beds, lovely rooftop bar and very sociable atmosphere. Nice views and a bit more character being a small way into what seemed a safe favella. Bit of a hill to get up and sometimes the uber drivers won't go up it, but that's a minor thing. I'd happily stay again. Also recommend you try the caparinihas from the rooftop bar!

    Amazing staff and breakfast was sufficient for the start of the day. However, I would have liked to know how I use the kitchen more - since I wasn’t sure I could. Maybe give a little more information when checking in. Super close to the beach and the rooftop is great place to chill.

    I thought this was one of the best hostels I have stayed in my 8 months travelling South America. Based in a Favela - it's totally safe. Close to the beaches of Leme and Copacobana. Staff are welcoming and helpful. Dorms are spacious with plenty of locker space. The view from the dorm balcony looks out over the ocean. Bathrooms are very good - everything is well laid out and clean. Breakfast is excellent

    We stayed during carnival, we knew the city would have enough places to party so wanted somewhere a bit more chilled out, so this was perfect. It’s still a social atmosphere and family who own it are lovely. 100% recommend the hike ran through the hostel, one of our highlights. Some uber drivers won’t drive all the way up the hill but say ‘seguro’ enough times and they usually oblige, it’s totally safe. Overall a cool place, would stay again.

    This hostel is very modern and stylish, but unfortunately not very clean. I stayed here for 7 days and the room didn’t get cleaned even once. The bathrooms were super nice but not always clean. They have a beautiful terrace but unfortunately not well utilised because the bar is closed there. Aircon was not available at all times even though Rio is super hot! The breakfast was really nice, but could offer eggs. There is so much potential for this hostel, and it’s a shame it’s not very clean
