    Big Mike here, Just wanted to thank everyone who made my binge drinking escapade an awesome experience even though it was during this covid-19 pandemic. Melissa, Bia, Melvin, Brenda, Rafael are all really chill and will bend over backwards to make sure your stay and time at the hostel is top notch. I'll definitely be back so that I can see this hostel at it's full PARTY potential when there isn't a world ending apocalypse. This is the place to be. Cheers 🍻

    If you're looking for a social/party atmosphere, this is the perfect hostel. It's very close Leblon. The staff is very friendly and there's a party and karaoke in the hostel during the weekends.They also organize some day activities like a hike and boat party. The weekdays do quiet down, so you can probably catch up on some sleep. It's at a great location, 2 blocks from Ipanema beach. The hostel has a bar, but you can bring your own drinks.

    I stayed this hostel during Carnival 2020. During the stay I was never tired of visiting in Rio because I was able to go out with many guests from various countries. Since carnival season, we went out to Blocos (street carnival) and enjoy the carnival. Staff in this hostel organized Bloco Tour during daytime and also party at night so it was very easy for me to interact with other guest and most of staff is very friendly. You will definitely be able to enjoy stay in Rio

    The good: superb location, staff are great, perfect felt for solo travellers, loads of parties, free caipirinhas everyday, safe neighbourhood. The not so good: no kitchen, loud if you want to relax, small cramped rooms. Overall would recommend if you want to meet people and party. Spent 6 nights here and loved it.

    Awful! The super loud music often started at 3pm and continued until 3am the following day. Despite using wax earplugs I barely slept for the two nights I stayed. (Female) staff often let themselves into our dorm to use the facilities without asking - at 1am! Both nights there were arguments with them about this. How are we/our belongings safe? The room set up is odd, affording little privacy with the shower cubicle being in the room as is the vanity and toilet. Stay here at your own peril!!

    The rooms were dirty and there was mold growing on the walls (i have pics). The bedsheets and pillow cases were not changed once while we stayed there and the cleaners only did a quick sweep of the floor every few days. Me and two other friends all got sick while staying at this hostel due to the unhygienic condition of the room. We had to check out 2 days earlier and asked to be refunded for those 2 days. The staff said they would ask the manager and get back to us which they never did.

    I never ever write reviews but this one deserves ones. Please do not stay at this location. The staff was so rude, the second I arrived they could care less and kept pointing me in different directions. Until I ended up at the exact same desk I originally went to. Nobody spoke Portuguese or English. Once I arrived in my room, it SMELLED HORRIBLE!!!! I left in that instant. It was a horrible experience, I would not suggest.
