Liked: Located in Gloria, its close to the night life area of Lapa and St Theresa. Its located on a quiet street and relatively safe. Also only 5 mins from the Metro station where you can take to Ipanema beach (R$2.80 one way).The hostel is quiet funky with a nice terrace hangout. Try to get one of the air con rooms.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
