We stayed at he Bonita for 3 nights with our small children (4 and 6 years old) in a single room with a double bed and a bunk bed. The location is perfect, 3 blocks from the beach and 1 from the Hippie Fair Crafts Market. The underground station of Ipanema (General Osorio) is right next doors and the ideal...

The hostel is well located but that´s the only good thing about it. I stayed in a private ensuite room, and I would not recommend anyone to stay there.The room was next to the bar, so it was very noisy, impossible to sleep well. The matress was terrible, bed sheets and towels seemed dirty. Sewer smell in the bathroom. Overall...

The place is pretty charming; everything in warm colors. The staff is overly friendly and helpful. The rooms and especially the bathrooms, however, could do much better. Breakfast is really good. They've got a bar with affordable prices.

Arrived at Bonita for a three night stay and yes as many reviewers say the location is amazing, right in the best part of Ipanema, next to restaurants, bars, shops and 3 blocks to the beach and the same to the Laguna. The double room was clean-ish and there was a strong smell of bleach that remained rather strong for...

My fiance and I stayed here at the end of May and still remember their fantastic breakfast!

The hostel is in a fantastic location just a few blocks back from Ipanema beach. There is a great Mexican place...

The biggest disappointment here is that the wifi didn't work and it seemed that the staff weren't interested in fixing it. Also they quoted us a lower price when we called the day before, then upon arrival the price went up by 50 BR. Rooms are cramped, NO A/C, the A/C is in the room and doesn't work. Great access...

I stayed here during carnival with my friend. I thought the rooms were very nice, clean and the staff were fantastic. They were very friendly and helpful! After staying in another hostel for most of carnival it felt very luxurious. There is a lot of attention to detail with the reception wall paper, the tables and the decor. It is...

I stayed here for 6 nights over Carnaval with my husband. We usually stay in hotels but decided to stay in a hostel due to the very expensive prices during this period. We had a double with air conditioning and private bathroom. The location is excellent- 2 blocks from beach and 30sec stroll to Metro. Reception staff were helpful. Grounds...

We had a double room in very poor conditions (plugged toilets and water all around the shower, unsafe electrical outlets, very old painting on the wall) and on top of that, the staff was being or arrogant or absent.
