Liked: The property was nice and close to Copacabana beach- It roughly took us 10-15 minutes to walk and a average pace. The facilities were clean and the staff were very nice, Always warm and welcoming with a smile and recommended great tours and transfers.

Disliked: The wifi was very slow but the alternative is to use the computers provided near reception.

Liked: The location is quite good, and they offer a small breakfast

Disliked: Our room was located in a courtyard which looked like a shed converted into a room. The double bed was ok, but the single was tiny and pushed up against a mouldy wall. No blankets provided and it was cold at night! The bathroom was terrible, it was the size of a toilet cubicle and you couldnt sit on the toilet straight without touching the basin and the shower. The staff were surly and breakfast was mediocre choice. We were most annoyed about being ripped off, we had an amount owing in US dollars, and being Australian, we clearly have no US dollars on us, only reals. They converted the amount by 2.05 instead of the actual conversion rate of 1.7. Surely they have the amount per room in reals? The whole place was super noisy, with a quiet curfew at 10pm, but it was the staff that were overheard talking at all hours in the morning.

Liked: The Che Lagarto Copasuite was cute and tiny. I liked the serive of the staff member. I met many young people from all over the world. They were all friendly and heartily.The place of the hostel is very nice. It takes just 5 minutes to walk to the beach copacabana. The place is safe and secure. As a woman you don´t need to fear about something could happen after 8 or 9.The programms they offer for the young tourists were diversified. The guides are capable, they organized it well and they were funny as well.The most thing I liked in the hostel was that is wasn´t so loud and noisy.

Disliked: The walls of the rooms should be painted again. Some spots of the walls are molded. The toilets needed more to be cleaned.I noticed that the sponge to clean the dish-washes should be often to change. That is not hygienic.

Liked: Reasonable price for Rio. Good size room. wifi worked in our room.

Disliked: When anyone had a shower the hot water service sounded like a didgereedoo and was quite loud. Very thin walls! Everyone in one room had to pay wifi fee even if they didn't use it or you only had one computer.
