    Located in vibrant area of Lapa, close to lots of cool bars and historical places. Very easy to commute to other parts of the city. Insane facilities incl. cinema, library and rooftop bar with nice view of the city, huge chance to improve a bit atmosphere :) Staff was very friendly, helpful and talkative! Special cheers to Roberto and Philipe!

    OPA! The hostel is located in Lapa, near the Arcos, close to great night life, cafés and restaurants, also close to the tram system, métro and bus system which will take you basically anywhere. The hostel is beautiful. It has a great common room, rooftop terrace, a garden area, a radio station providing the hostel with happy feel good music. Best of all the staff is fabulous ... friendly, helpful and most staff members speak three languages! Truly enjoyed my stay! Cheers! Amagi Patrick

    This was really clean and new. The facilities are nice but lack a bit of soul The staff were helpful, but besides the reception staff some staff seemed really serious all the time. Overall very clean, professional level hostel. I would stay again.

    Pretty great location if you are going out to party. Everything is walking distance. Building is nice and trendy. They guard the entrance too. My friends and I bonded with all of our roommates across our rooms, haha! Although they keep things pretty clean, they are a little stingy with towels and sheets (which gets rough if you are staying there for multiple days and given Rio isn't the cleanest area lol). Also, staff is pretty good to work with overall but not 10/10 you know. Good spot overall!

    Very new and swanky hostel. The rooms are immaculate, the kitchen was good. The shower was the best I had had in South America! They had some really stylish furniture and funky art. The staff on reception were friendly and helpful. A little slow. Staff in the bar were the miserable but it’s not really connected to the hostel. Lapa is a weird place, being at the hostel is like being in a bubble. It’s so modern, yet there are homeless people sleeping on the streets outside. It’s kind of strange.

    This hostel is very new and clean. I had a bad experience with some staff. Most staff were friendly, but some were being fake nice. Exchanged contact information but ignored my communication. The place has a radio station which is cool. Kitchen well equipped The dorm beds have a strange layout - no bed dividers / less privacy If you are a manager at this hostel, contact me and we can talk about how to train staff, and do a better job hiring, facility mods. Business degree. Experienced.

    Selina hostels are guaranteed Good WiFi, facilities, location and Clean. This one had one of these - cleanliness (bar the kitchen). The WiFi was intermittent at best, the hostel was still being done up so the kitchen was still under construction as was the rooftop And the cinema wasnt completed. They didn’t inform you about this either upon booking, or when you checked in. Lapa’s not a good location - dirty and dangerous. There was a lot of staff but they weren’t helpful. Absolutely 0 atmosphere

    More of a hotel than a hostel and would certainly not recommend to a solo traveller if relying on hostel to meet people as there was not really much of an atmosphere. We stayed in a 6 bed dorm and the least I would expect in terms of cleanliness would be the bins to be emptied every day and for there to be a supply of toilet roll which was not the case here. The majority of staff seem pretty disinterested when talking to you and the bar staff spoke little/no English. Fire door was blocked.
