    Quiet hostel near to the beach and lots of bars, restaurants and cafes. Double room we had was huge and comfortable but a bit hot in the afternoon and evening.

    The best aspect of this hostel is it’s location. It’s right in the middle of everything Ipanema. I had the private room which was great. Very good a/c, clean sheets, and bathrooms were clean (but only every couple of days). Perfect for needing a place to just sleep. The only small criticism I may have is that the local staff did not speak English - but it was obvious that management makes an effort to hire English speaking staff foreigners to address that issue (those people were very helpful).

    We stayed for 2 days in a private double room - it is in a good location, just 5 minutes from the beach, and one road off the main strip with lots of restaurants, shops etc. There is no atmosphere but if you are looking for a good simple place to stay then this is great value. The bathroom (on the floor we were on) is large and the shower good - not sure what it is like for the dorms. Good value for money!

    Bien pour une nuit. On a dû payé pour laisser nos sacs un jour avant. Fourmis dans la cuisine comme souvent au Brésil. Chambre privée un peu sombre et petite. Bon rapport qualité prix

    Amazing location but the rooms were unbearably warm at night in Summer - no air con and plastic hygiene covers on the bed made it really uncomfortable. The guy on reception was super friendly and went out of his way to help us.

    Aircondition and kitchen was nice but it was not especially clean. Also the staff was really lazy and slept until 9.30 in the morning in the reception. They barely said hi. Didnt make any effort to give us our keys whenever we came back, we had to go get them ourselves (which is also weird as anyone could take any key they wanted). Didnt feel welcomed at all even tho the lication was awesome

    It was my first time in a hostel that charge you for the sheets to your bad, I only been there for one day but someone from the stuff was really ennoying, he came into my room at 10 am and opened the window when every one slept, like four people was sleeping and than he started yelling on a girl that she need to do check out.
