    Mambembe was great, it was a nice and social vibe and in a nice location too. Plus, I got a discount at another Mambembe hostel in Brasil for booking through this one. Definitely a good deal.

    It's an old colonial house converted into a hostel. Beautiful place, incredible vibe. The views from the hostel are amazing and the staff super helpful. It's a great place to meet people very evening and also walking distance to Lapa if you want to party or listen to some live samba. I'd definitely stay here again. Thanks guys for all your alternative tips to get to know Rio as a local :)

    Great staff. This hostel feels like a community and the people there are absolutely incredible. It’s close to Lapa and fun for going out. Drinks are reasonable for happy hour and massive. Only negative is the triple beds, make your own bed, and the WiFi actually does not work. They have three different WiFi’s and none of them worked in my room from the top bunk. But I would stay again because everything else was great.

    Good party hostel. Most people got together and went out every night. Location close to downtown and night life. Property a bit rundown in facilties; but wifi ok , showers hot and breakfast ok. Staff all spoke good english. After a good time probably can't do better. After hotel type accommodation then try else where.

    This was our first stop, it was a beautiful building, super staff, great communal area including several eating areas and a music room. The bedrooms although not big, had high ceilings which means the bunks are high with enough room to sit up in bed and they all had privacy curtains. The beds also had their own light, plug and shelf. The hostel felt very safe and people left their electronics out. Breakfast was good, a tad monotonous but there were the same variety of options every day.
