Liked: It's a really good place to stay! Good atmosphere and really friendly staff (mostly argentinian). The breakfast is really good and they also offer quite cheap diners (they have a cooker who decides the day's menu).It's really well located, near the metro station and bus station to go whatever you want. It's 30 min walking to Copacabana.I really recommend the hostel!!

Disliked: Nothing! =)
