    Nice hostel that is close to Copacabana beach and the metro so you can get to other parts of the city easily too. Onsite bar. Pancake breakfast. Good value for money.

    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.

    The beds with 3 layers can be dangerous. I think the room for 6 pple would b perfect due to the size. For 9 pple not enough ventilation

    Very Good

    Stayed for 4 nights at the 6 beds mix room. Even if the staff were very friendly and the hostel was very secure, I wouldn’t recommend to stay here. The beds aren’t comfortable, they only turn on the AC between 10 pm and 10 am, so if you are at the hostel after that time it’s a real oven. The lockers are in bad conditions and they have to be more worried about the cleanliness of the bathrooms. In the other hand, they serve breakfast for free and the location it isn’t bad. Must improve :)

    Very Good

    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.

    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.
