Literally a 2 min walk from Ipanema beach and close to a lot of good restaurants and cafes. Rooms were cleaned at least twice a day (shout out to the lovely Brazilian lady who always came around 9 pm to clean the room and gave us hugs). Mixed dorms were tight for space especially when full and everyone had suitcases...

So firstly - bar is great and social. Breakfast is also good. Aircon exists - again, good. Sadly, repeatedddd misinformation or mistakes from staff let us down. Asked to book in for a tour, couldn't as it was full, were told we could book in for the next day in the afternoon and that they would. Literally like 10hrs later,...

My staying was good. The stuff very helpful and useful with suggestions on what to do etc... Free caipirinhas 6.30/7pm was a good add-on. Location is perfect just 5 mins from the Beach and very close to all kinds of shops/restaurants. Lockers in the room a bit aged and not really thief-proof. Kinda party hostel so easy to meet people.

Close to the beach and nice pubs. Friendly and helpful staff (who spoke excellent english) and adequate rooms for fairly cheap price. I enjoyed their day tour as well as the guide was very welcoming and informative.

I have stayed here twice now, once as a solo traveller and once with a girlfriend and enjoyed both stays very much. It's got a really good vibe and it's very easy to meet people especially if you're a lone traveller. Nice party nights and good tours also.

Had a great time, rooms where clean, the staff was friendly, the location is great: pretty close to the beach and breakfast is ok. The best part are the free caipis from 6:30 to 7pm! Everyone gets there and you hang around with everyone.

Fun, lovely bar downstairs but still quiet upstairs, near the beach, got computes to use for free which not a lot of places seem to do these days. Staff are fun and helpful, glad I stayed here. Breakfast was decent and the rooms setup is basic but everything you need is there.
