My girlfriend and I spent 5 days in the dorm here. Staff are very competent in English as well as French and Portuguese. Very friendly and helped us organise and do the things we wanted to do. Rooms very clean and air conditioned. Close to the beach. Go here! Ipanema is better!

Food and bar are great (which is important if you are in a hostel!). The rooms and bathroom in the main building are very average. The rooms in the new building across the road are a lot nicer and cleaner. The staff are very friendly here which I can commend.

Yes, it does look a little bit unfurnished and cold, and it doesn't have a kitchen, which sometimes can be pretty useful but still I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Rio de Janeiro!Super great location, right next to one of the most famous beach in the world!Copacabana is history nowadays, definitely stay at IPANEMA!!The neighborhood is safe even at night...

I stayed at Che Lagarto in Ipanema in January 2014 for a couple of nights on my own. SERVICE: The guys at reception were friendly since the start and they made me feel extremely welcome. Unfortunately I can't remember their names, but the guys during the day shift are lovely!! ROOM: I stayed in a female dormitory with 10 beds....
