    Second time staying here. I’ve tried other hostels but always come back to this one. Really nice vibe and social for solo travellers. I’ll always come back here. Staff are helpful and friendly. It’s home away from home for me.

    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!

    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.

    Rooms are so hot. Zero ventilation. I was there during the heat wave. Lots of people complaining.

    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.

    Didnt expect to share a bathroom with 18 other people, no hot water, window was left open so lots of mozzies in the room. Pool table was used as a washing line. Breakfast and decent tv only plus.

    DO NOT GO THERE. We we’re in a 9 beds dorm and if we had the windows opened we would hear people scream and trash talk, smashing beer bottles on the floor ALL NIGHT. If we’d close them the AC they’re advertising wasn’t working so we would die in heat. We cancelled the 3 next nights and they didn’t even tried to accommodate us. They didn’t care at all of their gests’ confort, you’re only money for them. We tried to reach the manager but NEVER answered. 11/10 don’t recommend. Horrible.
