    Stayed here twice, one night each. You can see the Cristo from the hostel which is pretty cool. The neighborhood has good options for food nearby and is located between Lapa (party area) and the beaches to the South (Copacabana, Ipanema, etc). Staff was really cool, however, they had so many volunteers (like 8?) that it felt like there was a sort of distance between the "residents" (volunteers+owners) and the guests. Simple breakfast and 24hr reception. Approaches feeling like a party hostel

    Aurora was one of my favourite hostels that I’ve stayed in, it is a really cool place with the best staff. Had a chilled out vibe which was second to none, i wish i had more time to spend there!

    Had to make your own beds - had others comment that’s normal for Rio? Breakfast was average, eggs and hot dog in sauce. Rooms were cleaned daily along with facilities. Shared kitchen and fridge was a bonus when on a budget. Not a lot of food options close by. Had a female only bathroom which was a plus as the other bathroom only had one toilet with a door.

    Good hostel, could be a GREAT hostel if someone cleaned it!!!!!! It has fab kitchen facilities, the bunk beds are 3 high so that’s a little stressful. We stayed for three nights and our 12 bed dorm wasn’t cleaned once (not even a basic sweep). The floors throughout are pretty grim. It has an ok breakfast and lots of activities going on that you can join in with. Close to metro and places to eat :-)
