    Amazing hostel! I do wish the top beds had bars or something to protect you from falling. The staff is really friendly and are full of great vibes! 1 min away from the Ipanema beach and 1 min away from a street with lots of great restaurants and shops!

    Stayed here during carnival, met loads of great people and had a lot of fun. Good bar in the evening with free caiprinhas is a good way to meet people

    Very Good

    Fine for a couple of nights if you want to check out Leblon/Ipanema, but not well setup for a longer stay. Its basically dorms and a bar, which to be fair is lively most nights. Excursions and options available at the desk are generally overpriced and the staff don't seem to have any special knowledge of the city.

    Nice location right a block away from the beach. Did not really have a good common space. Had a nice happy hour. Staff were nice. Rooms and bathrooms were kinda dirty, beds were not great and top bunk doesn't have a rail. Could not sleep well here at all since many of the people in my room were pretty oblivious. Though otherwise I met a number of nice people

    I stayed in quite some Che Lagartos in South America but this one lowered my expectations. I was there for a couple of weekdays and weekend. On weekdays I could not believe there was so much noise in the street because of the guests of the hostel (mainly Argentinians). Many of them drunk, screaming and bothering neighbours too. It was very annoying. The music in the main hall was awful, even in breakfast they were playing really bad music so it is something you need to take into consideration.

    Party hostel, not for those who wanna sleep. Prepare to stay up the whole night, because the music will play really loud until 12 and the hostel will be quiet after 2am. The dormitory will be noisy the whole night cause people are coming from the bar.

    I would give zero if I could, I have stayed in many hostels all over the world but this one was disgusting, cockroaches, smell of urine, stained matress and useless staff. I was recommended to stay here by a friend, things have obviously taken a landslide. No refumd offered so we stayed elsewhere, do the same seriously!
