12 May 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This is a nice, clean place to stay but I~m not certain why it´s worthy of a Top 3 award. It´s a good size, not too small, or big so it´s easy to meet people. It cant be faulted on cleanliness (to the point it sometimes smells like a hospital). A couple of things missing from the write ]-up: the very steep, though admittedly short, hill to get to the entrance; the very noisy kindergarten next door that starts up early in the morning and goes on well into chill out time in the early evening.

Liked: This is a lovely hostel....its clean,,,the location is safe and it's not far from the beach or metro. But I only stayed here one night even tho i'm in Rio for a week....i just didn't think the atmosphere was great...Most of the people that stay here are a bit young (i'm 27).......For somebody traveling alone i would not recommend.

Liked: I liked everything about this property! The location was just behind the Metro, but in a safe, residential street. The security and reception were friendly and helpful, the receptionists explained transport details properly and didn't try to push for people to join tours. The AIR-CONDITIONING was fantastic in our rooms and in the common area, which had a bar and sitting area (turned fabulous breakfast buffet from 9am-12pm) and pool table. There was an upstairs common DVD room with a huge flatscreen and a wide range of DVDs. Little monkeys came and ate fruit on the wide window ledge :) The kitchen was clean and the kitchen staff friendly, people respected others' food and drinks. The owner came during the daytime and made an effort to speak to people. The communal bathrooms were cleaned regularly, there was enough hot water and the whole place nice and new, like a renovated colonial boarding house. There was 3 free internet, wi-fi, clear and pleasant signage everywhere. Only bad thing was that I had a lot of mossie bites the first night because we were next to a national park, which was duly noted and taken care of the next day. Reception was closed at 12am and afterwards one had to be quiet, reception opens again at 8am. There were enough public bathrooms and laundry could be done in-house. Best place in RJ!

Liked: The hostel had a great atmosphere and was big enough to have various places to go within the hostel...from a movie room to a cool hang out bar/lounge...it was a great stay. Feeding the monkeys fruit everymorning from the TV room windows was by far the best way to get a great day started!!!!

Liked: this place was fantastic! the entire staff was very friendly; housekeeping does a great job keeping it very clean (and smelling pleasant!); the location is excellent - only one block to the metro and three blocks to the beach; there is free internet and wifi, free billiards, and even a free caipirinha each night! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

03 February 2010 Patrick would recommend this property

Liked: Cool hostel with super friendly and helpful staff. It was a nice stay there, even though the rooms can be really hot (especially room 23). Also, some of their activities were a bit too expensive I thought, for example 70 reals for the transfer to a football game including the ticket (if you organise it yourself it's a lot cheaper). All in all a very pleasant stay. Also the owner is super friendly.
