Liked: I like the free shuttle offer if you stay 4 nights' but Judie at reception made the driver wait 20 minutes to rite voucher' also no one at Aercoop knew about it, even after twice confirming it with hostel. I like location' quiet street, near by shopping and of course the beach.I like room 12 not 6.

Disliked: Kitchen and frigde are not quest friendly' nor are bkfast staff. Place for common areas are too crowded' No one offered any tips to make Rio experience ease.
