    It was a nice place, the hostel is very big, the staff was very kind. I recommend staying here. However, you need to climb some long stairs to go up so it's not ideal if you have heavy luggage. Additionally, they material of the floor to walk inside the hostel is not the proper to be in a place without roof, in Río it rains a lot, the floor becomes very slippery and dangerous. During the rain I felt down myself because of he slippery stairs in the rain, and got a big bruise.

    Hostel da Bruna is wonderfully located and the staff are friendly. However we found it to be overpriced - even given that it was carnival - for what was offered. We stayed in a small private room that only had a fan (no a/c), which was surprising given the price we paid. We also found the lack of locker in the private room concerning. The staff assured us the room was secure, and indeed we had no issues. However even a simple locker would have made us feel more secure.

    Really friendly and helpful staff. Easy to meet other travelers. Close to bus stop. Can walk to the beach in 25-30 mins. Other than that, not the best. Three beds high bunks in tiny rooms. No aircon in the dorms. The bathroom door in our dorm didn’t close. The kitchen has hardly anything. I couldn’t even find a bowl. And maybe one fork. The price was expensive for what you get. However, it was Carnaval, so I’m sure it’s usually cheaper.

    I would definetely not recommend this hostel. Basic and to expensive for what you find here. I booked this before new year because was not easy find another hostel and I choose this hostel because air condition but after I arrived here there was no AC in my room, only fan. I couldn't sleep couple days but after I got another room with AC and paid a lottle extra. ( Ac 10 pm to 10 a Wifi didn't work properly so I wasn't able to look for another hostel. Hostel people very nice and tried to help.

    Demoram quase 1h para fazer nosso check-in, o sistema estava muito lento e os funcionários estavam trocando de turno. Além disso, não computaram nosso pagamento no sistema e tivemos que comprovar através da fatura do cartão. O quarto estava limpo, o hostel é charmoso, mas não vale o preço. Não inclui café da manhã ou toalha.

I guess I was at the worst room(I saw some better rooms tho) with really old mattress and some construction workers were sleeping(with their helmets and dirty shoes on bed). Bathroom was like… just nooooo..I was really hoping to not meet bed bug, but oh well. I got all my bodies beaten up(more than 100bites) and had to cancel all my tour plans and
