Location is perfect but the room that I stayed was really tight and small for 4 people. Besides that is a good price, employees kindly, and very close to ipanema beach. However, the Hostel need to improve their quality, including better common toillets, providing some ventilation and less noisy rooms.

There is no air conditionning so the night was hot and noisy. Breakfast is quite bad All of that for the same price as... More

Good hostel. Clean. Excelent location near Ipanema Beach, restaurants, bars, night club/disco and shops. The staff -Rosa, Rick & Nuno was professional, very helpful and friendly. Fantastic atmosphere, very gay friendly. I stayed 5 days and I had good time. Rio is super! I will definitely be staying here again.

The rooms are the size of a small closet, dirty, smell of mold, they give you a plastic bag with old sheets and old pillow cases that do not match, something your grandmother might use.
