    Best hostel in the world! My absolute thanks to Juliana, Robson, Diego, Belen, Jessica, Agustina and Tamara for the wonderful stay. It’s been such a wild ride but Che Lagarto is the best place to live wonderful adventures and memories you will never forget. You guys live in my heart S2

    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.

    Such a nice little hostel right in the heart of ipanema! Staff are super friendly, only thing I would say is it’s mainly a Spanish speaking hostel so if your Spanish isn’t so good, you may want to stay elsewhere☺️

    The door card is a piece of cr*p. It never works, every time I had to go to receptionist and ask them to reactivate my card. Great location and great staff

    Muy pequeño, está un tanto descuidado, el personal muy amable, pero el lugar es muy incómodo debido a la estrechez

    We stayed here over carnaval and were very excited in the lead up, however it was a huge disappointment. There was very little atmosphere and zero social space which made it impossible to meet people. We were also promised a bar and a kitchen but in reality this meant a drinks fridge and a plug in stove. The cleaners came into the dorms spraying bleach in to the air every morning, making sleeping incredibly difficult. Free caipirinhas and location are good.

    - good: one block from the beach.- bad: there is only 1 bathroom per room - imagine 10 people in the dorm, you only have this one bathroom with shower together or one in the reception, which was always full. no kitchen - you are not allowed to use the stove etc. no atmosphere - not good for solo travellers . Staff has terrible music taste and music is very loud. Kind of budget hostel that attracts all kind of people. Pay a couple of euros/dollars more and find a nicer place.
