    Superb

    Close to Lapa nightlife, yet in the more calm Santa Teresa. Nice and helpful staff. The Christmas dinner that they organised was very welcome since almost everything closes in Rio on Christmas eve. The common areas make it a good place to meet up with other travellers.

    One of the best hostels that we stayed in in all of South America! Each bed has a curtain, lamp and socket (dreamy), great location - close to bars in Lapa, staff are truly lovely. Beautiful building, good sociable areas.

    Fabulous

    Great atmosphere and camraderie between hostel travelers. Location is close to the Lapa night life area. It is possible to wander to more sketchy roads nearby but once you know how to get around it doesn't feel unsafe in general.

    Very Good

    10 Dec 2018
    Mixed feelings about this place! Not the safest location, shady people hanging out on the streets, although this could be Rio in general!! Hostel actually had high security which was good. Dogs barking outside constantly at night, I had earplugs so slept fine despite the noise. Staff were helpful when on shift but often rude and ignorant when not on shift - more staff than actual travellers in the hostel. Breakfast was great and filling - George Foreman grill for toasties was a great addition
