I suppose the best place to start with this review is to tell you simply, 'you NEED to stay at Manga Hostel'. I stayed over a couple of weeks during the world cup, and I had an absolute blast. I stayed in the Lapa Room (23 person dorm) the entire time. The bed was comfortable, with free bed sheets and...

Breakfast was bare-bones, and is provided by an impersonal outside staff. However, the location of the hostel is impeccable and the staff are friendly and fun. The primary issue was that the...

The staff was amazingly friendly, and the rooms were surprisingly clean given the amount of people in each room. Breakfast was a little plain, but other than that, everything...

It's location is awesome. It's located in Lapa, a neighborhood filled with parties and great restaurants. The rooms are big, so you'll have the space you need and you can't hear the noise from the streets. The bathrooms are clean too! The guests here knows how to behave and have a good time at the same time. The living room...

We stayed two nights in the Leblon private suite on a Saturday and Sunday evening and were pleasantly surprised by the kind and helpful staff that checked us in and helped us during our stay.
