    The hostel is very good. Every time I stay here the experience is incredible! I always stay in the private room, which is spacious and has Tv, private bathroom and air conditioning. I recommend staying in this one. Besides os that, it's close to everything, has super cool pool and bar, with bier pong and other games!

    Didn't like staying here-a "nickel and dime" hostel, they charge for everything. Needed a blanket because the AC was so cold and they asked 10R for it (they ended up not)-they check your sheets before returning deposit to make sure they're clean. That just creates bad atmosphere to me, esp considering how much I spent just to stay here. Brekkie (15R) is just okay. Laundry can take over 24 hours. 5p dorm really cramped, lockers awkward/loud, common space too hot bc no roof covering

    The people who work at this hostel made the stay here. I had an accident in Rio and staff/volunteers did their best to help me in the next few days with hospital visits, drugstores, bandages etc. I really felt at least some people were concerned for my well being, which means a lot when traveling solo! David, Max, Carol,and others muita obgrigada! Juliana who cleans the rooms is pure love! That said the place needs some updates ie bathrooms, kitchen, beds and rooms! Good bar/restaurant tho

    Had a fantastistic time! The staff has been really great and helpfull and enjoyable! Good to meet people and felt safe. But; The beds are seriously terrible! Please do something about it! The matrass doesn't fit in the bothem?! It was sleeping like in a smelly tent on a steep mountain! Stayed 10 days in female dorm for carnival, not that I slept much because of carnival, but didnt even want to lay in this bed.. to overpriced for the facilities you get and no breakfast included.

    Good location, varied helpfulness of staff. Most of the lockers were broken and rooms are very cramped. Air con is only turned on at night so it’s very hot during the day and actually quite cold at night! Showers were good. Atmosphere is ok but no social events organised.

    Really wasn’t a fan of this hostel, small, cramped, untidy, unorganised and overpriced even for around carnival time.
