Liked: This hostel was great value for money, I met some great people as I was travelling alone for the World Cup, the staff we very helpful and spoke English, they offer tour sect have a TV in the main reception/living room and there is a bar downstairs with 7 pool(billiards) tables There is a mall 2 mins around the corner which sells everything and has cinema Also the metro is 3 mins around the other corner with links to Copacabana and maracana Police station across the street

Disliked: There wasn't much to dislike. If I was picky the could have been more plugs to beds ratio so you can charge your phone ect Or more toilets and showers but it was ok

Liked: It is the right choice if "cheap" is the key criteria. Location is also very convenient, as it is right next to the metro stop. Bar is nice and cheap; also it puts on some great music!

Disliked: If the place is full, there are not enough lockers for everybody. No keys to the room, anyone could get in / out at any time.

Liked: the experience -how people probably felt in concentrate camp

Disliked: really old house and all facilities, owercrowded, the toilets and showers too old and dirty, was scared that I could catch something, not enough for so many people, water in shower was cold 1 day but then it was horribly hot-not possible to turn it down. no privacy at all even in the shower, open to everybody a whole day and a whole night -saying that nothing got stolen, not enough lockers -even if we did not use them. It was like a concentrate camp,only for people with strong stomach., no idea what would happened if the place went on fire.

Liked: I liked that it's one big room. I got to know everyone in there very well. Cool bar downstairs and very central location about a minute walk from the Metro. A proper hostel for backpackers. The staff in there are always getting pissed up but they are without a doubt, mega helpful. The WIFI is spot on and its cleaned every morning around 10:00. Perfect hostel to stay in during Carnival. Central to the beaches and Lapa, and right between Sugar Loaf and Christ the Redeemer.

Disliked: Not enough lockers to secure your kit and no real kitchen facilities. A bit of a quiet neighbourhood not near any beaches. If your in Rio for partying then your better staying off nearer Copacabana or Ipmanema.

Liked: It was the cheapest we could find during the carneval. We didnt got robbed.

Disliked: Practically everything. This hostel is bizarre, its 60 beds in an area that should have maximum 30. between the "dorms" there were only curtains hanging so dont bother paying extra for a separate room. water was almost freezing and there were no paper. It looked like no one had cleaned the place for weeks. Have you been to an concentration camp Poland? It gives the same feeling here!

Liked: The staff person who helped us seemed friendly.

Disliked: Didn't seem secure, was just one giant room with like 50 bunk beds crammed in, seemed more like a warehouse than a hostel with piles of mattresses, really hot, not clean, there were pigeons in the roof inside, no real windows, one bathroom for everyone, the lockers were an old set of file cabinets.

Liked: The communal areas are big. Showers are warm and strong. The guys running the hostel are friendly, but beware if you're blonde! Ha ha

Disliked: The bedrooms is not a bedrooms, particularly with no walls in place for divides. It is a large room with many bunk beds and hardly any room to move around. But if your looking for somewhere cheap, maybe this is an option. They dont clean the hostel, not the bedroom or the showers. They also have no air conditioning. There is no kitchen. People do not stay unless in the evening for drinks in the downstairs bar, which has lots of pool tables.

Liked: The staff was very friendly and helpful, and spoke English, the location was very good. New beds, mattresses and linens.

Disliked: It seemed like it had just been open but was not quite ready yet. Not enough toilets and showers considering the amount of beds. No kitchen. But it was cheaper than any of the other Rio Hostels, so as always, you get what you pay for.
