    We enjoyed our stay at Aurora Hostel! The staff were all friendly, the murals are incredible, and the rooms were clean. Everything felt very safe, and we very much appreciated the 24-hour staffed desk! The cappuccinos were also great!

    We arrived a bit late at night but the staff was super helpful! The rooms are small but well equipped, clean, functional and pleasant. The beds are comfortable. The environment of the whole place in general was very friendly & relaxing - any extras we asked for were readily made available. Not too far from the station either but a bit difficult to transfer a lot of luggage if you're walking with them. Overall, great place to stay at and great value for money.

    The hostel is amazing - very cozy and comfortable. My room was clean and tidy, the bed and pillow were good. The bathrooms were very clean, and there were plenty of them, so I could take a shower any time I needed. The staff is extremely friendly - explained me everything that was necessary, answered all my questions, assured me that the rules about the night noise are strict, so no one would bother me :) The kitchen is well equipped, the wi-fi connection is good, also it was possible to store m

    Very nice atmosphere when I was there. There are a few Brazilians living there, that chill out in the living room/garden which makes for a nice experience. Also I loved Botafogo as an area. The hostel was rather quiet when I was there, so I had to make my own plans a bit in Rio.

    Great location in the centre of Botafogo, perhaps the best part of Rio. Staff were very friendly, welcoming, really made for a great stay! Very reasonable price too. Would love to go back!

    No geral, a estadia foi ok, a localização é boa por ser em Botafogo, um bairro ótimo, onde eu me senti segura e com muitas opções de restaurantes, bares, mercados etc. A limpeza poderia ser melhor, achei os banheiros meio sujos e com cheiro estranho, minha cama era confortável, gostei de ter uma cortina pois dava mais privacidade, mas rangia muito. Sobre os staffs a maioria foram muito simpáticos e solícitos comigo, com exceção de um.

    Staff really nice and helpful. Location in Botagofo is great. 30 mins walk to Ipanema. Not really much of a party hostel, better to go to Books hostel for a night out. Cleanliness and facilities could definitely be improved. AC was not working for our stay so was very hot with only a few fans in the room. No washing machine facilities even though it advertises that they have it. The rooms could be cleaner and bins emptied more frequently. Bathrooms could also be cleaner with toilet paper replaced more frequ

    Sadly I can’t recommend this hostel. The area is quite nice and safe but sadly the hostel was really dirty. The kitchen was poorly equipped and dirty, so we didn’t feel comfortable to even make our breakfast there. The staff was nice but not really helpful with tips about Rio and they were always smoking, which contributed to the smell of the hostel. Furthermore the showers only had cold water and the toilet flush didn’t work but nobody seemed to do anything against it.

    Really dirty. We were supposed to stay 5 nights but cut our losses and checked out after 1. We wouldn’t have stayed at all but we came straight from a long flight and it was late. The atmosphere was unwelcoming and we felt very uneasy when we arrived and walked through the hostel. It was dark, smelly and run down. The photos are not accurate. The bedroom photos are nothing like the room we had. We slept on top of our coats as everything was so dirty. The room looked like it hadn’t really been
