    Best Hostel ever! You feel more like home than in a hostel. The living room is cozy and everybody is watching netflix together or playing xbox. The stuff were very friendly and gave us the best advices. Also they have the best coffee i have ever had in a hostel!

    After 3 months of travelling this is by far the best hostel we've stayed at! We were there during the carnival and had the best time. The atmosphere is very friendly and it's a really good place to meet people. The staff is amazing and are always ready to help and be your friend. It's very clean and a really nice place to stay. We were really sad to leave ❤

    Great hostel! Louis is amazing, so friendly and funny and makes you feel like you're besties. The rest of the staff are also great. Really good location- so close to the metro and in a safe location. Nice that the hostel staff get everyone together in the evenings for heading to bars etc. Would definitely return!

    We had a great time staying at cafe hostel for the carnival period. Luis and his team are so welcoming and inclusive. They got everyone in the hostel together to attend the blocos and went out of their way to find out how we could purchase sambadrome tickets. There was a problem with the door to our room and it was fixed very swiftly. The hostel had everything we needed- kitchen, laundry, big lounge with Netflix. It’s a great location, only 5 min walk from the nearest metro, supermarket and bars

    Very good hostel with friendly staff. Rooms were nice, we were in the 9 bed, beds were a good size and sturdy which is a rarity. Nice places to chill and hang out in the hostel. Didn't try the breakfast but looked standard. Nice area to be in and a short walk to the metro and good places nearby although not the cheapest but that's due to the area so not an issue really. Only thing I didn't like was the toilet doors, bit too see through, didn't feel very private.

    Hostel is well located in Vila madalena and close to shops and restaurants. Room was quite big and had a large fan but no aircon. Staff were lovely and there’s quite a nice atmosphere with everyone being really chilled out. Kitchen is ok but could do with some bowls and more hobs as it’s hard for multiple people to cook at once.
