    Perfect location by the beach and other restaurants and shops. A lot of party which I liked, maybe not the best place for someone who wants quiet, having a kitchen was good but you can’t make your own breakfast because they don’t open it til 11 which didnt bother me because I woke up kind of late most days. Staff was great.

    Best hostel I've stayed in Brazil. The staff made our stay even more fun and were very helpful - free caipirinhas enables an easy exchange with fellow travelers. Highly recommend! 10/10

    Great hostel, although: Not for the people who want a silence (all the time music at the reception and in the evening the music is played very loud till late plus the guests are loud). Also the kitchen doesnt have basic equipment (for example glasses/mugs for the coffee) plus is opened only since 11:00-23:00. The rest is just great!

    Amazing staff, extremely friendly and helpful! Perfect location just a block away from Ipanema beach. And if you like a little exercise you’re a 1.5km jog away from Pedra do Aporador (beautiful scenic point) that has a free public gym right next to it.

    negatives would be that someone comes into clean the room at about 11pm so wakes you up if your sleeping, 1 night poured bleach on the floors gave it a quick mop and left - the smell of bleach after this was horrific and gave us all a headache. The doors were very temperamental and would choose when they worked so would make a lot of noise. Great staff, great location only a few mins away from metro and comfy beds. Free to use Beach bar was FAB and provided everything needed for a relaxing day.

    Very Good

    18 Feb 2020
    Staff were great. Breakfast nice. Free "Sunbeds" or deck chairs as they are known to us is a bonus. 241 cocktails on beach was good. Free cocktail at 730-8pm good. Next to beach and shops is great. 8 bed room quiet small and one bathroom between all, not ideal when everyone wants to get ready. Wifi kept dropping. Saw cockroach in corridor of rooms. Very much a party hostel, wasnt for us in that sense. FYI: The bus to ilha Grande, you can get cheaper via easy bus website than hostel.
