Room in unsanitary conditions. Mold on the wall. There is no window. Air conditioning doesn't work. Terrible mattress and bedding. Bad bathroom. There are no events held by the hostel. Everything in this hostel is bad. I've traveled all over the world and this is the worst hostel, I can confirm.

The hostel is well located, downtown in Lapa with a closed secured door and a 24/7 reception. However, apart one of them, staff seems pretty annoyed to be there, although everybody was quite nice. The main problem to consider is that rooms are extremely small. We booked a 6 beds dormitory and there was not even a 2 or 3 square meters to move in the room. It let a impression of oppression, since it was practically impossible to stand at 2 or 3 at the same time in the room.

Very Good

The hostel is nice, especially the communal area, which is really well done! I think most of the effort has gone into this area as the rooms are very basic, but clean. No issues with temperature in the room like in other reviews, but beds were noisy and wobbly - anytime someone moved, you all moved! Staff were lovely and this is a great place to base yourself for carnaval if you just need a decent place to stay! Lockers in the room were not great, some broken and they only fit small padlocks.
