    I was sceptical to stay here after reading some of he reviews, however this place exceeded all expectations! The staff were so lovely, always friendly and up for a chat, the vibe around the hostel was great, always someone to talk to. We had a private room, it was small but everything we needed. And mainly the place was secure with always having to be buzzed in and out of the hostel. Great stay!

    Tiny tiny room for the $’s but it’s worth it for the location! Right in the heart of Ipanema even the local taxi drivers and tour guides were commenting on the great location. Great restaurant three blocks away ZaZa-$$$. The atmosphere is great and the cheap in house dinner specials especially the bbq are superb! Also stored our bags free for a Few days while we went up to Iguazu!Friday market at the park one block towards Copacabana and hippie market at the Park four blocks away on sundays!

    Beach House Ipanema was exactly what I hoped for. It is not the biggest party hostel in the neighborhood, nor is it the quietest. The staff is seemingly always present to host a grill-out, make drinks at the bar, help out with excursions, and serve breakfast. The patio and living room areas connect to create a good community vibe. Helps that it's short walk to the beach and to a metro stop. Would definitely stay again.

    Stayed in 6 bed female dorm. Room is comfortable. Bed is fine. Bathroom gets cleaned daily. My only gripes were 1) soap dispenser didn’t get refilled and 2) there were no hooks in bathroom for hang your stuff. Bar out front makes it very social for solo travellers like myself. Will stay here next time I’m in Rio. Great place!

    Very Good

    The staff was very lovely; Sara and lidiane are the joy of the hostel! The location is amazing! But the facilities could be better given the price you pay. The showers were missing tiles and there was mold on the walls. With a little bit of work the hostel could be great. It's not completely there yet.

    Very Good

    Kitchen was dirty most time. Shared by different rooms showers were showing already a lot of use and no signs of soon renewal, bathrooms too tiny and only one sink to share by several rooms.Beds on 3rd level have very dangerous slippery stairs to climb and rooms have no keys and anyone that does not sleep in the room can enter any time . Very good and helpful staff Very good breakfast Very good location

    Most of the staff were a delight, especially the cleaners, however... the pictures on the advert for the hostel are outdated and the place is slightly run down. I had bed bugs, 1 always dirty shower for 24 people, some very moody and unfriendly staff, repetitive breakfast, TERRIBLE WiFi, a grimey kitchen that’s a constant state, a pool table that was unusable and no system in place to help victims contact police when people were robbed.

    Cons: cleanliness is really bad. I accumulated over 30 bed bugs bites in the 4 nights I stayed there, and the bathrooms were always dirty and there was never soap in the dispenser. It worth noting however that the location of the hostel is great. It is in the middle of Ipanema, within a close walk to the beach and some restaurants (not party district FYI).

    Definitely much worse than expected. Does not look like pictures. Whole place under construction with tons of noise at all hours of day. Bathroom facilities unreliable. Pool non-usable. Staff not very helpful. AC worked great. Great location.
