I loved this place! From the moment I walked into the lobby and took in the breathtaking view, I knew that this was a place that I would love. The beauty is in the details of this hostel and Marielle and Thibaut knew what they were doing when they created/designed this place. From the cozy rooftop lounge to the impeccably clean and beautiful rooms with balconies, this place has it all. You can tell that this place was created with love by people who know the ins and outs of travelling.

Bonus - the bar provides very affordable drinks and they make a fantastic caiprinha that isn't too overly sweet.

Was absolutely amazing, Marielle and Thibault were so helpful and would do anything for the guests. It has a nice relaxing vibe to the hostel and the breakfast is great too. All the staff were very helpful but Loic and Nils were the best part of the hostel keeping everyone amused and entertained.

I loved my stay in Aquarela do Leme, and even came back when I returned to Rio. Thibaut and Marielle are wonderful hosts and will help you with anything you need, and the neighborhood is very friendly is well (the cheapest and best hamburger in Rio in the street bar just next door). I loved the dorms - all the beds have curtains, shelves, light and are well designed, allowing for some privacy, even if the place is full. There is also a rooftop with an amazing view, and the breakfast is excellent. I would recommend Aquarela do Leme to anyone traveling to Rio, younger or older (they have very nice private rooms as well). Just be careful that you won't want to leave...

Although the hostel is located in between the two Favelas of Babilonia and Chepue Mangueira this Hostel is the best I ever stayed in my Life. The neighbourhood is very safe during day and night. The rooms are modern, breakfast is really good, the Family which runs the hostel is super friendly and going to help you with everything you would like to do! I want definetly go back there!

What a great place to stay in Rio, perfect location, friendly staff and nice fellow travellers. Highly recommended for solo travellers as you will met lots of great people. There is a really nice family vibe about the place and it was very hard to leave although I will be back soon! The breakfast is plentiful and the rooftop is perfect for chilling any time of the day. Marielle and Thibaut deserve a lot of credit for doing such a brilliant job and taking such good care of their guests whenever they need anything.
