    The hostel is on the pricey end of hostels in Ipanema but it has a pool and nice decor so you are getting something for your money. The overall vibe is nice with most ppl chilling by the pool. A few things that can be better are a) adding sockets by the bed b) raising the bottom bunk bed slightly as you are basically sleeping on the floor and c) changing some of the furniture that is worn out. Overall I would go back, it’s a good place but it’s not the best hostel ever as some suggest.

    Very Good

    Great hostel, great people,good vibe. Just be careful with the payment - they tried to scam me. On my checkout day (Sunday) I asked to prolong one more day and they ask to pay immediately (previous days were not paid). Next day when I checked out (Monday) and settled the bill, they told me, that yesterday payment was for Tuesday (wtf?) and I have to pay yesterday night again. After some argue they said they are not suppose to do it, but they will forgive me I don't stay till Tuesday (wtf again?)

    Very Good

    The hostel atmosphere is awesome, however the rooms and the cleaning need be improved. The bed would have more facilities like a plug to charge the phone and a light, simple detail that make all difference. Some receptionist gave my bed to another new girl even with my stuff there, very inconvenient. For a hostel, it's a good option, would be great if they improve this topics. Thanks

    Our stay in this hostel wasn’t that great. It has good location and the pool is a plus. However, the girl at the reception during the day is pretty grumpy (seems takes things too personal). The one of the evening is great though. Our room was tiny and the toilet had some ventilation/smelling issues.

    There was only 1 shower/toilet for an entire floor (and it definitelycould have been cleaned more often! Hair, hair, hair..), the triple bunks moved a lot when someone climbed, there was no traveler-atmosphere (hardly anybody stayed in the common area)... Not sure whether they would have helped organize trips etc., but in any case they were not very proactive about it. Good price, staff and security etc. was nice, but I wouldn't stay here again.

    I find it particularly unacceptable that we had to wait nearly 2 weeks (and several mails and calls) before getting an answer concerning our reservation questions prior arrival. The room is not well maintained and it lacks personal furniture to stow things (tablet around the bed, power outlets ...). The common areas don't look like in the pictures (pool area, back ward area). Some investments are really needed. Poor wifi. Really small fridge. No matress protectors for the beds.

    I was sadly very disappointed by our stay at Ipanema Hostel. The private room was tiny. You could not lay down two suitcases. The staff (except one lovely lady) were largely unhelpful. The biggest issue we had was the hostel hosted an outside ?(we assume Brazilian) volleyball team trophy night and put on a massive BBQ, drinks etc for these people but none of the hostel patrons. There was no common area we could go in the hostel to escape as there were people from outside the hostel everywhere.

    The place is absolutely disgusting, the pictures make it look 100 times better than it actually is. I booked for 4 nights, but left after 1. If you stay in the first house, you should be fine. However if you stay in the back, you will have to go outside for bathrooms and showers, so you’re kinda screwed if it’s raining. Theres no locks on dorm rooms and anyone can walk into your dorm. The place is super dirty and does not look like the pictures. The staff was nice and the vibe was pretty good.

    There isn’t enough room for how bad it was so I’ll summarize. Unkempt, mold everywhere. Bribing people with free beer, next time just provide a good service. Some of my things were stolen from my private room, someone came through the window, when I mentioned it to the owner she didn’t care and took no action. Every morning I woke to noise from staff or other guests. All staff, with 2 exceptions were unpleasant. They don’t reply to emails and they don’t have most of the services listed. Don’t go
