    My friend and I came from the US for Carnaval 2019 and I don't think my trip would've been nearly as amazing if it wasn't for this hostel. The staff was fantastic, the other guests were fantastic, and the location is literally a walk away from the beach. I honestly felt a little sad leaving Rio because these people quickly became my family and it felt like I was leaving home, but I'll definitely be back in the future. If you like good vibes and are even considering this place, do it. Trust me.

    Stayed here for Carnival and had the best time! The breakfast was good, the bar (although a bit small) was super fun and tried to get people involved! The staff were so helpful and friendly, and had a genuine interest to make sure everyone had everything they needed to have a good time. Shout out to Arthur and Stefany who went above and beyond... the carnival wouldn’t have been the same without you!

    My only criticism of this place is that some of the bathrooms are too small. Other than that my stay was fantastic.

    The staff are so friendly and helpful. Nice community vibe especially in the bar and kitchen. Short walk from restaurants and beach and well connected to buses and transport links.

    When I picked this hostel for Carnival, I had no idea I'd made the best decision I could have ever made. When I arrived, I was added to a Whatsapp chat group specifically for the hostel and carnival information. Every day we were sent information about that days blocos as well as the activities that the hostel was putting on. Shout out to the BEST staff for showing us around and being extremely helpful. The bathrooms are cleaned daily, you're 3 blocks from Copa. Stay here, you won't regret it.

    Great location with brilliant staff, all very friendly and helpful. Hostel has a nice vibe and is good for socialising. The facilities aren’t the best, dated triple bunks. Kitchen is very basic

    This is not a hostel to stay at if looking for luxury...this is however an excellent hostel to stay at if you’re looking for a good time! Good atmosphere and exceptionally good staff to help our around the clock. Absolutely made our carnival experience! Could be cleaner, and could certainly have better facilities but didn’t affect our stay too much. Would highly recommend for like minded people seeking a like minded experience.

    Great location! Really close to the beach and the staff were really helpful! Facilities are a bit basic but I suppose that is the same with all hostels. The location made up for it though!
