    Perfect hostel for Rio. You have a bike station barely 50 mts away, the metro 100 mts away. A few cheap places to eat really close by and a market too! The staff was super friendly, and I was able to make good friends there. The AC broke down in my room, but they where quick to change me to another one where it was working just fine. The have a really cozy bar a 15 walk from the hostel where you can enjoy excellent food and drinks. My only regret is that I didnt spend more time there!

    Such an amazing place. This was my first ever hostel experience and as a solo traveller I couldn’t have picked a better place. The staff were amazing and the atmosphere in the hostel was awesome. Everybody was friendly and there were always activities. The breakfast was also good and I felt safe in the location. The rooms were comfortable and felt very clean along with the shower and toilet facilities. A great overall experience :)

    The staff really made the stay for me. They were beyond helpful and super friendly everyday, no matter who was working. Breakfast was lovely and there is the cutest hostel Dalmatian dog. Would stay again for sure. Triple bunks were the tallest I’d ever seen so if you’re up top hopefully you’re not afraid of heights

    This was first hostel i stayed in Rio 💞 I had a lovely time and met some really people here including the staff who are so so nice :) The location is great if you want to be near lapa, it’s near a metro and shops! I felt really safe walking out and around the hostel, we would often walk to lapa and it felt fine. I would definitely stay here again.

    The hostel nice, but the double room is not worth. Because the showers and toilett from the hostel are located beside as well it is noisy at night and in the early morning. But it is easy to get in touch with other people.
