    Super chill hostel with an amazing staff. Nina is one of the most friendliest people ever and will help you with any questions you have about Rio. The common area is small so it`s great for solo travelers to meet and the hostel staff always organizes beach days. The hostel is conveniently located three blocks away from copacabana and is a 10 to 15 minute walk to ipanema. It is also located close to cheap and expensive places to eat varying on your budget, so it has the best of both worlds.

    Nice hostel and a great location near the beach. It’s a safe neighbourhood and the hostel has pretty tight security. It’s small, easy to meet people and all the staff were really friendly. The mattresses are not great so I’d recommend upgrading them when possible. Otherwise it’s pretty much what you’d expect from a hostel.

    Great location if you want to be able to walk to Copacabana beach or Ipanema. We felt very secure here and the staff were willing to help whenever asked. Atmosphere could have been better, but that may just have been during the time we were there. Would stay here again.

    Some staff were amazing - the managers and the girls (Nina especially)working behind the desk. We had quite rude encounters with one male who worked at reception who tried to over charge us 3 times. The breakfast was disappointing as we are vegan and there was no vegan option, fruit often was withheld to “go with pancakes”. But it’s super cheap so you get what you pay for. Not much of a vibe, upstairs was too hot to cook and chill and outdoor small, no chairs. Good for a quick cheap beach stay.
