    It was very nice!! Likeable staff especially Alex who was very helpful in booking my tour. And also the one who’s preparing the early breakfast and cleaning the rooms. They were such a nice person

    The hostel was in great location, seemed safe and easy to get around the city since it is close to a metro station. Also grocery store nearby. Kitchen wall well equiped. So far the best hostel I've stayed in Rio. Alex at the reception was amazingly helpful. Thank you!

    Only thing I didnt likw was no a/c. Normally not a big deal but window in my dorm lead to a more or less busy street so i heard the traffic all night. But great place to stay in

    A great and affordable place to stay if you need a break from dorms! Kitchen was great and breakfast was some of the best I’ve had in Brasil. Staff was helpful and offered tours. I stayed here because I needed a cheap place to do a Skype interview in the middle of the night and the WiFi was perfect. I was here during low season so not many guests but even if there were more people it would not be a good place to meet people.

    I enjoyed my stay at KarioK, but I must admit the hostel was pretty quiet at that time. So it would be a good place to relax, if that's what you need. Location was fantastic, close to the metro station (Gloria), stores, banks and restaurants. The staff was super helpful. You could even buy beautiful paintings from local artists if you had some spare change. Minor gripe: bathrooms were a bit cramped, but everything was working properly. Not much to complain about, really.

    It's in a great location right by the metro and Lapa, and the staff was super helping and helped me get tickets to the Sambadrome during Carnival. My in complaint is the lack of air conditioning, which can be hell when it's 40 degrees at night.

    First things first. The bed was really nice. And the breakfast was an actual breakfast, which was a nice surprise. Then to the negative stuff. The room felt "dingy". There was light coming from the window through out the night and the stairs to the roof make ton of noise. Despite the nice bed. I barely slept. If you need a quick stay before moving on. This place will do the job. But would not come here for long stays.
