    Really good spot if you want to be near the beach (ipanema is the nicest one imo), safe, and with a bunch of international people. The staff are really friendly and knowledgable (tours, jujitsu, surfing, hikes, pretty much anything you can think of). Facilities are really good, they have a wide selection of drinks at the bar, and even have warm showers in the rooms (rare in Brazil hostels - but cold showers are a thing here). Would definitely stay here again.

    The perfect spot to stay if you’re flying into Rio. A block from Ipanema beach, and only a street away from main street of shops/restaurants. 15 minute walk to Copacabana. Subway line to city 1 minute walk away. Staff are very friendly, and helpful with any requests - directions, booking tours etc. We stayed in a private room with ensuite. Room was cleaned daily. Free towels. Cold aircon. Super comfy bed! Clean sheets. Cable TV was a plus on down days. Not your typical hostel.

    Staff were so lovely, helpful and friendly! The hostel is in a perfect location for the beach, a minute walk (max) to Ipanema beach and situated near main shops in Ipanema. A very safe and friendly place with lots of nice places to eat and drink! Only thing could be that the room bathrooms could've been nicer - they do get cleaned everyday (I think our shower maybe just leaked a bit) but fine!

    The staff is great! Very good and safe location. No kitchen or common room to use, just a bar. You have to ask every time to turn the air conditioner on, because they don't provide its remote control.

    Great location but one staff guy really sucked and the atmosphere isn’t great. It is quite evident that they are just trying to make money instead of trying to create an experience for the guests
