    I had an amazing stay at Ipanema Beach Hostel. The location was phenomenal, the staff were extremely helpful and courteous, and lastly the price is really good! I wanted to especially recognize the staff their because they made my trip! Specifically NATALIA and BARBARA, they took it upon themselves to make sure that I had a good experience in Rio by taking my Canadian friends and I on excursions and giving us advise on what we should experience. Again, the staff here is amazing!

    Perfect location for the beach and main road in Ipanema with all shops and restaurants etc. Free caipirinhas every night and massive weekly parties so great for meeting people if you’re a solo traveller. There’s plenty to do nearby such as Twin Brothers mountain and Tijuca National Park if you want to escape the city. Good wifi and they had lockers for our bags when we arrived early and left late. Would recommend to a friend.

    This was an enjoyable stay while in Rio de Janeiro. The staff member who checked me in, Natalia, was super helpful and friendly! I didn’t really “click” with many of the staff but Natalia was always happy to have a chat and recommend things to do in the area. Thank you Natalia! While the hostel was not dirty, I believe it could be a bit more looked after in terms of general building maintenance. Additionally, a WhatsApp group by the hostel would be very useful for solo travelers.

    Hostel is in a great location right next to the beach and has regular parties and events to get to know other people, both travellers and locals, which is fun. Good to be aware that the events can be quite noisy if you’re not in the mood to socialise, but I managed to sleep really well even on the night I didn’t stay up late. The staff are helpful and friendly. It’s not the cleanest place I’ve stayed but it’s fine and the beds are comfy. Was the perfect start to my travels, I’d recommend!

    It’s a party hostel with mostly Brazilians and a few internationals The floor was shaking until 1am from the speakers The rooms are very tight with a bathroom sink and shower connected with no sound or light divide People came in the room loud and drunk in the night and put the main light on The staff don’t speak English except one lady who spoke some and was very nice Breakfast is ok - toasted bread and cheese and fruit

    Good staff and location don't really make up for the quality of the rooms. Each room has it's own tiny shower and toilet which are hard to use and can smell bad. AC is also weak

    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!!
