    We stayed at Bamboo Rio hostel for 6 nights during carnaval having never been to Brazil before and we had the best time ever. The hostel staff were so friendly and welcoming and made an amazing effort including planning and going to carnaval events together as a hostel group which gave us an amazing carnaval experience. There’s such a lovely atmosphere at this hostel and we made some good friends from staying there. Would definitely stay there again in the future. Obrigada por tudo Bamboo Rio ☺️

    Awesome stay here at the Bamboo Hostel during the Carnaval celebration. The staff are absolutely awesome and informative. They even took us out to a few block parties and clubs nearby and made sure we all stayed together and were safe. I've become friends with many of the people I've met at this hostel and will definitely be staying here next time I am in Rio!

    The room was too small for 12 people. Apart from that, great staff, location and athmosphere.

    The staff is really incredible, super helpful, friendly, they are the best thing about this place. About the place itself, it could be better, not enough utensils in the kitchen, some mattresses are bigger than the bed size, which is uncomfortable, interesting enough, the bedrooms are not shown in the pictures, and I guess by purpose. Also, they kind of "cheat" to get good rating, they give you a beer if you give them 5 stars rating.

    Stayed here during Carnival so paid over the usual price and was disappointed. Room was cramped + damp, AC not turned on til after 10pm despite it being very hot, + beds weren’t comfy. They had lockers but these were outside the rooms/ on a different floor. There was no chill out area other than an outdoor bar which isn’t great in the rain. Two good things were- bathrooms cleaned a few times a day and some staff very friendly- shout out to William for helping me out when my hoody went missing!
