    This was a really safe area and was a good place for me to start in Rio. The facilities are nice and clean. The staff is super friendly and helpful. I loved the free drink half and hour. It was easy to arrange tours, activities and transfers. The area was a little boring at night but you could choose to go out to the nightly party that all the hostels are promoting. Also appreciated the en-suite bathrooms. Would recommend if you want a safe place near the beach.

    Staff was amazing, so much fun here.As well they come in the room to clean daily (I’m sure more then once a day too). It is a party hostel, so you meet a lot of new people. Just don’t expect to sleep early. Latest the loudness will be is 1am, still manageable. Beach is literally 2 minute walk AND the hostel offers chairs + umbrella(free!!!) So grateful for that!

    Nice atmosphere, a lot of chances to meet people and party. It is a bit loud until 11 or 12 pm, but after that the bar closes and if you don't want to party you can go and rest properly. Mostly under 25 years old.

    Very Good

    This hostels location was so good close to metro, beaches and supermarkets. The kitchen wasn’t well equipped - as most utensils, plates/bowls/cups are downstairs for the breakfast service in the morning. As my friend and I preferred to cook our own meals we found this to be rather annoying. The free beach equipment was awesome! One of the female staff members working at the beach kiosk was quite rude to us though. Well cleaned hostel Options to party but was a bit far away from nightlife.

    If you are looking for a party, go somewhere else. Books hostel is a better bet for a party. If you are looking for a hostel close to the beach, then this is great. Beach location is about the only good thing about the hostel though, small uncomfortable beds, not a great common area, far from nightlife

    The hostel is in a great location but that is it’s main strength. Dorms were secure but tiny and the beds were very basic and noisy with even the slightest movement. Cleaners were constantly cleaning it seemed but it was still a little grimy. Atmosphere was ok but not the best. I’ve found better places in Rio.
