    First time traveling alone and they made my stay just perfect. The Location was amazing and the staff just made everything better. I can't imagine for a better place to stay than Ipanema beach hostel, I would definitely come back to this place.

    I loved all the people working there, they were very helpful especially two of them! They took care of us like family, and I can't express how much they made our trip. The whole hostel group bonded after one of us got our phone's stolen but it provided a good story and an all star cast of new friends made from around the world. 10/10 I'm coming back to this place!

    The location is perfect and the staff made the stay extremely good fun - especially as we checked in at very short notice. It's neither a quite host or a crazy party hostel and finds a good medium for a lot of travellers from all over the world. Oh, and free Caipirinhas at 8pm...

    Great location - only one block from the beach. We stayed in the 8 bed superior and there was lots of space for everyone’s bags as well as spacious lockers. The toilet and the shower are a bit cramped though and other than the bins being emptied the room wasn’t cleaned.Beds are comfortable and have their own light & power outlet. Hostel organised a party one of the nights which was busy so it’s good for atmosphere. No kitchen and if you don’t book through them directly breakfast isn’t included.

    The rooms are tiny- even smaller then they appear in the pictures, there is barely room for 2 people to pass between the beds and this makes making your bed with the musty sheets provided very difficult. Breakfast was not included despite the cost of the hostel. The staff all appeared to be newly hired without any real leader or knowledge of Rio Tourism. I was also charged 20 real to shower after I had checked out- this has not happened before in over 6 months of travelling in South America.

    The Good: Great location, convenient and near the beach. Some staff are very sweet and helpful. The Bad: My room had a mould/damp problem and leaking ceiling. Not good for meeting people and little thought put into providing a good atmosphere for guests. They use the bar downstairs for private parties - not for the guests, so no good as a party hostel, nor for people who want quiet/ sleep. Want to meet people? Try Che Lagarto or Mango Tree. Want to chill? Get a hotel at this price!
