    Very nice and friendly staff. The rooms are very small - no plugin by the beds. Makes it a little hard finding a place to charge your phone. Rooms were also extremely cold - air con was on at night at 20 degrees making the room very cold. Had to rent a blanket... Toilet/bathroom in hall. Both alright. Didn’t use kitchen but they have one and it looked nice and clean.

    Our room was very comfortable and clean, although there wasn’t loads of space. The en-suite was decent, but the shower was only mildly warm, not hot. We paid for the breakfast on our first morning, it wasn’t really worth it though (most hostels offer that kind of breakfast for free) so we cooked after that. The kitchen was good, but could do with some new pans as they’re all falling apart. The location is good, a 10-15 minute walk to the supermarkets and Copacabana beach

    Overall pretty average. They make you pay to rent a blanket despite it being winter and so cold inside. You have to find a staff member every single time you want water, as the only filter is inexplicably inside the bar, annoying for everyone involved. While the staff were really nice, most aren't from Rio and couldn't answer our questions. The happy hour was so short and didn't really encourage people to hang out there. All small things but added up to a fairly disappointing experience.

    Terrible. If it were not for the nice staff members, it would have been much worse. Pool was filthy and closed for most of the time, dengerous stairs crumbling under my feet to my room, kitchen covered in bugs and grime, filthy/broken kitchen utensils/plates, my room smelled like mold, toilet would not flush, shower covered in black mold, AC and TV remotes broken. Breakfast cost R$50??? And no social activities to even make up for it. The manager was very nice but not enough, we left early.
