    Staying at Mambembe is like staying with family, the staff are so welcoming and inclusive - this place really is everything a good hostel should be. The rooms/facilities are clean, beds are comfortable and the breakfast is great. Couldn't recommend Mambembe more if I tried!

    A lovely hostel full of lovely people and staff! Great for solo travellers. Alex super inclusive and helpful, sorted out transfers and gave all the useful tips and info. Felt like home after a couple of days and was sad to leave! Beds comfy, and rooms lovely, amazing value for money.

    Really good hostel with a location close to Lapa but away from the busy streets and nice balance between space to chill out or relax and party vibes on the weekends. Good times at Mambembe for sure

    Nice location, but a bit unsafe region, specially at night, depending on how you get there. No problem if you go by car, but beware of walking around alone. Not so clean, but I can't really complain. I chose one of the cheapest options, so it's a good balance.

    Nice building in a great location. Cleanliness is acceptable but not great. Staff, some were cool, some were quiet. 3 high bunk beds are pretty bad.

    It was nice, but some things could be improved. The hostel was very hot and humid because of the weather meaning most people were half dressed just to deal with it. Also, the walls were covered in provocative posters of half naked or naked women... this could be improved for various reasons! Otherwise, a nice house converted to a hostel with a few different areas to hang out.

    Staff is very helpful, location is good for partying in Lapa but not good for relaxing at the beach. Facilities are very bad, water was not working at all for over 24h. Only 1-2 out of over 5 WiFis are working (sometimes) Beds are very uncomfortable, A/C works only after 10pm. Atmosphere was strange. Even for carneval it was just too much money (40 USD per night) for what you get.
