    I originally booked here for a week and stayed for a month! The hostel is incredibly clean and is cleaned every day. The hostel atmosphere feels like a family, with a bar every night to get you involved but you never feel imposed upon and everything is up to you. The owners Zion and Augustina make you feel welcome and the staff, specifically Ben, Igor, Marco , Toni and Willian help you with any questions and make you feel at home. Great location and will be coming back!!

    The best cooking staff in the world I think. I absolutely loved the staff here and they are so kind and involved. Another family atmosphere in Rio. It’s a fun place to spend a few days in Rio if you want to party.

    This was the first on our trip having never stayed in a hostel before. Everyone was absolutely brilliant with us and made us feel really welcome. The hostel itself has a great friendly atmosphere and is really clean. If we are ever in Rio again this is where we will be staying
