    The hostel is located in a small favela where you have to walk 5 minutes uphill , but the atmosphere and the views are totally worthy! we went to a party on the top of the favela and was awesome , all the people super friendly and cool! Restaurants and shops around are quite cheap , as well the drinks from the hostel bar. All the people in general were super nice and all the staff at the hostel speaks good english. In 5 minutes walking you are at the beach!

    Really nice hostel near leme and copacabana beach. Its a little favela uphill where you will find amazing local people , bakeries , bars , markets and restaurants , everything way cheaper than copacabana. Recommended for independent travellers who have already travelled before. Staff is cool as well ,as they know lot of tips to enjoy the city from different angle. Dont expect type of hostel where staff would entertain you. For me , just the perfect place!

    Nice hostel , over the hill of a quiet favela. I just loved the atmosphere of the area , mixed of local people and lot of people as well. In less than 10 minutes , you could reach , leme beach , which its really more calm and beautiful ( for me) than copacabana. Cheap and local food just in front of the hostel , 24 hs a day!! Awesome!

    Was hard to leave this place , as you could feel after some days that you were kind of a local. The locals are just awesome , honest and friendly people. Favelas has such a bad reputation , so i am more than glad that i chose this place to have a real experience. The hostel itself has everything you could ask in a hostel , but i a really chill atmosphere. Staff gave pretty cool tips and you dont feel they are trying to take your money. Booked couple of nights and stayed almost 2 weeks!

    Pros: cool staff, good value for price, nice chilling spots and good prices at the bar. You can go to the beach walking and to closeby neighborhoods such as Copacabana and Botafogo. Cons: The hostel stays in a uphill on the foot of a favela, it may be dificult to catch an uber/cab directly from the hostel.

    The facilities were good however the place is sold as a hostel and is not one, many of the guests had been living there for a while and therefore it felt like their home rather than a place to socialise for tourists. The room had no door or curtains and opened onto an open terrace. The bathroom had no glass in the window which didn’t help create a secure atmosphere. The lack of breakfast or any cafes/ restaurants nearby didn’t help contribute to our unsatisfactory experience.
