    The hostel is located in an area near lots of restaurants and coffee shops. The facilities are good - comfy beds, kitchen where you can cook, TV that you can watch Netflix on and breakfast is available in the morning too. The staff were also really lovely - they spent ages helping us fix a problem with a bus booking we had made.

    I know a lot of hostels around the world and I can say “Aurora Hostel” is the best that I’ve ever stayed in my entire life. Very nice cleaning, delicious Breakfast, location is very good, staff was wonderful... the shower is hot (the way I like), there is some markets around the block, stores, bus station near and subway... what else? . It was a very very good experience at Aurora. When I come back to Rio, I’ll certainly stay there.

    Aurora was the perfect balance between lively social vibes and peace and quiet. The limit on making noise after 10pm meant there was always a solid group of people going out to a blocos, samba parties etc. There’s also been a negative reviews regarding cleanliness - from my experience, it was easily one of the cleanest hostels I’ve stayed in. Staff were also (on the whole) great, big shout out to Crys, Andre & Kendall. Will be staying again for sure on my return!

    Not a clean hostel, security wasn't their priority either but they have super friendly staff and a good social vibe. It has breakfast included, decent facilities and a social atmosphere. You get what you pay for, I'd just be mindful of security and cleanliness.

    Bang average hostel tbh. Everything was okay, nothing was great. Bathroom and kitchen were pretty grim most of the time but the bathrooms did get cleaned every morning. Bedrooms were alright, lockers to put your stuff in but the beds were so squeaky and the room was so hot despite there being air con. Breakfast was okay. Pretty good location, short Uber from everything. Banks, supermarkets and fast food places very close by. Alright for a night or two but we stayed for 7. Not good.

    Never before have I stayed somewhere as bad as Aurora. The hostel is absolutely filthy, from top to bottom. In the bathroom for instance the bins aren't emptied and the floor is littered in hair. The kitchen is full of cockroaches. Security is non-existent and anyone can walk in, off the street. The hostel is lax about people sharing beds, so the dorm rooms are even more crowded. Breakfast is bad also. One morning we were served rotten watermelon. Do not stay here under any circumstances!
