    From the clean rooms to the professional AND friendly staff, our stay at Che Lagarto in Ipanema was fantastic! Anything we needed the staff was there to help. Shoutout to Ohana, Yuri, Johnny and Laura who really contributed our wonderful experience in Rio.

    I've stayed at che lagarto's hostels before in other cities and as well at the ipanema one. It's kinda lost its identity. I was a bit disappointed specially with staff. They used to be fun, very organised and fair, but still fun. The blond girl at reception was rude and it seemed she hated being there. Já fiquei em outros hostels do Che e em Ipanema tbm. Me decepcionei com staff, eram divertidos e profissionais , agora parece que odeiam estar lá! A moça loira da recepção que o diga ! Hehe

    I extend my stay till one week, is a pretty party hostel but I found an amazing stuff and pack-packer. Close to the beach and shopping/restaurant streets. I really like it. The only thing is the kitchen, no salt no Oli nothing really good for cooking. The rest was good, bed pretty comfy and clean

    The hostel is definitely a nice place to stay at. Staff is nice and location is optimal. However, I didn't like the fact that kitchen is not available to use in the morning. It looks like it's a way of forcing you to buy breakfast, which should be free considering that we can't use the kitchen.

    Overall, a pretty nice hostel where there's always people at the bar every night. However, would probably not recommend this hostel if you don't speak spanish or portuguese, as +80% of the hostel is from South America and all seem to clique up together. Can be tough to meet people if you only speak English. Great location tho, dorms were nice and especially considering how cheap they were. Staff were very helpful. Location is fantastic.

    The rooms are very small, and are for 10 people, plus they are very dirty. Bad attention from the staff.
