    A little oasis with a good vibe, a bar and great common areas to chill (incl the pool). Close to the beach / metro / bars. Def not a party hostel but great to meet people. It could get a little cramped if all rooms are occupied but it’s nothing compared to the hostels in Copacabana / Lapa / Botafogo. Don’t understand the negative reviews. There is no construction, AC is on the whole night and no one does “trash talk”. Been to Rio several times... this place is def the best these days.

    The hostel itself is really beautifull. You have a nice frontyard where you have breakfast and a lovely garden where you can chill in the swimmingpool.

    Nice hostel to stay. Booked the 6 beds mix room. Even if the berths have 3 beds, they are very firm and stable. Stayed for 6 nights and the place was very clean. It’s true you have to close the windows sometimes because of the mosquitoes, but the staff (vet friendly and helpful) was worried of closing and assuring that the AC was working every day. The bar in the front it’s a plus (good prices and caipirinha). Cons, there is only 1 bath room (2d floor). There is a toilet in 1st floor too.

    Beach House is in a wonderful location on a safe, street with a great selection of bars and restaurants. The hostel itself has a lovely atmosphere with a cosy front bar and a spacious back yard with pool. Although our room was absolutely fine, there were only a few bathrooms for the whole hostel and we often had to wait to use the toilet or shower. Otherwise - lovely!

    Good: Location, price. Bad: Cleanliness. My bed had dirty marks and was smelly. Walk around and you could find dirty everywhere. Even when you take breakfast you have to check out the cups and plates, half of then were dirty. Smoke. Smoke allowed, lots of people smoking like crazy, cigarette smell everywhere. Overall: If you are a teenager spirited person. Like to drink and smoke a lot, and don't mind the mess, this is a good place to stay. Otherwise, try another option

    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.

    DO NOT STAY HERE! Booked a private room for 4 nights at this hostel (room 57). I booked non refundable as I’ve never had trouble with a booking before. When I got there, the room was infested with mold. My boyfriend & I tried to tough it out, but by night 3 I had become extremely sick. We asked to switch rooms but couldn’t & had to book a new hotel. We also asked if others had complained about the room, and they said that many had complained before. Yet, they are still renting it day after day.
