    Can’t recommend this place enough - looked after so well by all the staff. Felt like family upon arrival - ‘Tio’ always trying to feed you, Marcos so keen to show you around the nightlife; and Santi the most amazing host always keeping an eye on you and making sure you don’t feel weird. Stay at aurora Rio Restaurant downstairs serves amazing food, drinks are reasonably priced and there’s fantastic live music throughout the week Came here with one friend, best place we’ve ever stayed

    Myself & my friend booked into Aurora Rio for our first 5 days in Rio & it was so great we stayed for another 5. We loved everything about this hostel. The kitchen facilities are fab and they also sell international food on different nights. The dorms have plenty of room & have good lockers. There is a lovely area outside that everyone chills out. The staff were some of the most friendly and inviting staff I’ve ever met; Santi, Carol, Tristan & Tio are great. So helpful and made our trip to Rio.

    Aurora hostel had a great vibe, it was exactly what we were looking for. The location was good, short walk to the metro. The staff were very friendly, especially Santiago because he made me a sandwich :) They also ran a programme to help feed the homesless, so we volunteered with that which was very rewarding. I'd highly recommend.

    Originally planning to stay at this hostel for one week, I extended my stay for another week because I enjoyed it so much. The staff and the other guests are really friendly. When there is an event on, or just plans to go to the beach, they always try to include everyone. There is always a good breakfast every morning and the rooms are spacious. There are also a lot of showers and bathrooms so you don’t have to wait. I would recommended Aurora.

    Pros: Staff is super welcoming and friendly and make you feel right at home (Santi 💗). Breakfast is delicious, especially the french toast and the outdoor area is great to relax. Each Wednesday some of the team and guests are handing out food to homeless people! Make sure to join! Cons: Beds make a lot of noise when you move around.

    It’s in a good area and the breakfast was okay, but the plastic mattress and long term ‘guests’ make it feel like a half way house. Staff were nice until they decide to party all night. Shite loud music at 8am is never fun, unless you are hammered. Creakiest beds ever, stacked 3 high in the 12 bed dorm. Not a hostel I’d recommend
