    Nice little hostel in a great location close to the beach! The staff was incredibly sweet and very helpful with tips and recommendations for local experiences. I would recommend staying here, also travelling alone - it's small enough for everyone to get to know each other.

    Had a great stay in Rio. Really friendly staff, lots of things to do in Rio. Caipirinhas at the hostel were really good and a courtesy Caipirinha was included as well. Stayed in the 3-bed dorm, which is located on the first floor and included an AC.

    Very friendly owners and staff was said themselves the week was strangely quiet. Pretty chilled atmosphere. The staff invited us on nights out but we unfortunately didn’t go. We had the private room, the beds weren’t very comfortable, could do with some new mattresses and covers. The covers kept slipping off during the night so you ended up sleeping on the vinyl mattress, bit annoying! Location is very close to the copacabana but if you want to go for more parties then suggest you go Lapa way.

    It is hard to beat the location. It is only 5 blocks away from the beach. Bars, restaurants, banks, markets all with in minutes. I was there during the Copa America 2019 and they were not able to keep the hostel clean and organized. Maybe my timing was bad. However, I also paid double the price due to the soccer event.

    The hostel was very dirty, the beds were uncomfortable and my room was full of mosquitos. In addition although they had air con units none were turned on and there was no hot water so only the choice of freezing cold showers. I'm sure the atmosphere might be better in high season but it was a little dead when I was there.
