    This is my second carnival staying here and it was again wonderful this time around. The staff are fun, friendly, and very helpful at navigating the city. Close to Copacabana beach. Walking up the steep Hill to get to the hostel can really take it out of you however you will definitely get your exercise in. Highly recommend.

    Was here for carnival. It was awesome. Friendly staff. It's at the top of a steep hill that Uber drivers don't like to go up so you'll get your exercise in. Very close to the beach. Lockers in room. Great view of the the ocean.

    Was a perfect stay , i would have stayed longer but i had another reservation. This place is just great , lovely house with probably the best views from rio. If you look for a clean , well located place for relax , rest and being near by everything this is your choice. If you are 20 , want to stay whole day in the hostel and want the staff to entertaing you , thats not the place for you. Totally recommended , i would love to be back!! obrigado!!

    Frederico was generous and accomodating. This is a unique experience. Average wifi, very spacious, not very busy, great view, big hike (there are motos) and 100% safe before sundown. A fair walk to the nearest metro station.

    You need to walk up a pretty big hill to reach the hostel. The nabourhood doesn’t look safe and nice but in the end it was and I realized it’s just the first impression. The staff speaks good English and are very very nice and helpful. They really do everything for you to make you feel like home! Facilities are okay, not very clean but just fine. We had a room without a door, it was actually the way out to go to the balcony so lots of people went thru our room to go outside.

    Felt pretty unsafe. Pros: the private room was decent & clean. The rooftop was a cool hang out spot. Cons: the building was decripit & falling apart. Common areas were not the cleanest.The bathrooms had no toilet paper & cold showers. But the thing that made me move was feeling unsafe. The town of Leme is not bad but once you walk up that hill it's fairly sketchy & I heard what sounded like dogs fighting, constant yelling/chatter and some hair raising screams in the night.
