    Che, Ipanema is the most amazing hostel I ever been.The staff here is just amazing and made my stay very comfortable. Especially Priscilla and Jhonny deserve a special shout out. They are just lovely human beings.Jhonny runs a really tight ship here and go out of his way to make your stay comfortable and safe.

    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!

    Really liked it here, stayed for a week and a half and then came back for carnival. The staff are lovely and really helpful and the bedrooms are comfy and cleaned twice a day. The only downfall is that my food kept getting stolen from the kitchen but it's hard to avoid that in big hostels. THANK YOU

    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.

    Che Lagarto é sempre uma boa escolha se você procura um hostel limpo, com camas confortáveis, um staff simpático e café da manhã bom . Em Ipanema não foi diferente. A localização é ótima, bem perto da praia, uma quadra e você chega lá. Na praia há um quiosque do hostel, é bem bonitinho. Vale a pena se hospedar lá.

    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.

    Good Place if you come with friends and want to party a lot. Not suitable for solo Travellers, the place is just lacking atmosphere. Good thing is that you get beach chairs and umbrellas for free.
