Liked: -Great Location -Good service -They offer dinner for 18 reas every night from the friendly french chef. -Very nice atmosphere and good wifi

Disliked: -There are a lot of people in a little house - so pretty crowded. -The first room we had was in the basement, so it was very mooshi and closed, but then we asked them to turn on the air condition so it got a bit better. -The second room was waaaaay too small for a six person dorm.

They have lots of activities on offer which I recommend checking out and the hostel is in an excellent location, 5 mins from Copacabana beach and less then a minute away from shops. Plan on going back to rio and will.definitely stay here again.

Liked: I really like this hostel. It's been my second time in Rio and first I was in another hostel but I decided to go back to this one. There is a great atmosphere; There are always active people who want to go out and enjoy the city and there are plenty of activities to do! Then I have to recommend to eat the lasange or the pizza, the French chef really knows how to prepare a good meal;)

Disliked: Nothing really

Liked: It was close to the beach if that is where you want to be

Disliked: There was no key for the dorm room so anybody could come in. There were lockers but once when I came back to the room my lock had been broken - it looked like someone had tried to break it. It was rather noisy in the room (6 bed with private bathroom) from noise downstairs and the light in the bathroom was motion activated so after a couple of minutes in the shower etc you had to wave your hand it the air to turn it back on.
