    I only stayed two nights but found staff very helpful, nice environment. My only worry was the door open at entrance, for security reasons. There were no issues and I think if the door is open it's because it's safe, but still, why not close it? It felt a little vulnerable. Other than that, as I said, it was a great experience.

    We started our trip In Rio in this hostel, we had booked a private room with bathroom as we wanted to get settled after a long flight. The room was nice and spacious! There was rubbish in the bin, the shower had bugs and tissue in it. End of the day it’s a hostel not a hotel so you get what you pay for. Location is good. The vibe was a strange one and didn’t feel very welcome. There was one member of staff that was lovely but the rest were rude and unhelpful.

    To be honest I was a bit disappointed because of the rooms, their status and about the cleanliness. For that price I expected better accommodation. The staff was kind all in all, but they couldn’t provide with lot of information, moreover they were confused about their own offers. I mean they couldn’t help with the trips to Ilha Grande o Paraty, however in the confirmaron email they said that they can help to organize further trips. The “towel” that I had to buy was ugly, unclean. 😔😔

    It was so hot and they did not turn on the air conditioner during the day. The rooms are really, really crowded and there is no room to move. The hostel is noisy all the time and it is impossible to sleep.

    When arriving at the hostel, I was guided to my room (which happened to be in the attic) up a set of narrow spiral stairs. The room was in the smallest, dampest, unfriendly place as possible. The bed had no plug sockets, still had the old used sheets on and was quite possibly the most disgusting place I’ve been to. Furthermore, they had an ant infestation which caused all the bunk beds to be lined with ants which would bite you in your sleep. Really not a good place to stay

    Money was stolen from my locker, because the one I was given has a crack that is big enough I fit a hand through a grab my wallet. Didn’t notice the crack until everything was taken, but the hostel should have known and fixed it before allowing people to feel like it is safe to keep valuables. Staff didn’t care that it happened; only said they could call the police and offered me no support. Wasn’t shown around when I arrived, some showers didn’t have locks on them, beds are cramped together, not a friendly backpacker atmosphere. Positive is that it’s close to the beach.
