Liked: No complaints! Good location, bus stop right out front and you need to take a bus to get to most places in and around Rio, the staff were great and friendly and make you feel wlecome and comfortable. Clean and safe. Comfy beds and a good all round atmosphere make this one of the best hostels I've stayed in. And its really reasonably priced which is a bonus. Nice one to All at ocean inn! See you again!!

Liked: The woman running the hostel (Denise) was simply lovely! She was very helpful and willing to make ourselves comfortable. Our room was clean, there was an air conditioning, a TV and a DVD, the bed was really comfortable and breakfast was great. It's about 10 minute-walk from Leblon and there are many buses/taxis near it.

Disliked: As the hostel's been through rennovation, our sink was not working at the time but there were shared bathrooms near our room and the shower was working properly. It is near a favela but we had no problems at all as you go opposite to get to Leblon. We even had lunch and went to the market in Vidigal, the police was there all the time.

Liked: The woman who was running this hostel at the time we stayed there simply could not do enough for us, she was lovely. We had a clean room with a breathtaking view of the ocean as the property is located on a cliffs edge. Our bed was comfortable, the room had a tv and DVD with a selection of DVDs to choose from and a clean shower. Breakfast was great... wide selection on offer.

Disliked: The place was being rennovated at the time and as a result there was a lot of rubble around however, once it is finished it will be simply glorious. Location is not ideal, it IS next to a favela which is the only close supermarket however we went there and it was NOT dangerous at all. It is a little bit of a walk down to Leblon beach but the walk is lovely.

Liked: Actually, nothing.

Disliked: The dirtyness, the - few - bathrooms were so dirty that we were not capable of using them. And menwhile, the staff was chilling in the living room, whatching television, around a very filty room. The bed sheets were stainned, the towels were stainned too. They have a really cute labrador, but the dog poos all over and it took a day for the staff to clean it from the garden. The shared kitchen was always dirty and during breakfast, the guests themselves had to wash the dishes to get coffee and such.

Liked: Clean, cozy, nice kitchen on the terrace.

Disliked: Tricky to find in the night. Has air-conditioning but some careless travellers turned it way too low so it was freezing in the dorm room (in a warm summer night). Says it got parking but it has only one spot which is sometimes taken by the owner's car.

Liked: The girls at the recpetion were helpful, especially Carla (the blonde one) was really nice.Free internet.Big lockers, you can put in a huge and a small backpack, but...

Disliked: ... the lockers are not safe, so no real lockers!! The bolt was very tiny, the doors don't close completey so that you can look inside and can pull the doors easily. I am sure if you pull just with your small finger, the bolt will fall off. Additionally not all boards of the lockers were fixed. Because of this you could lift up the board of a locker, even if it is closed! You just need to have acces to the locker on top of it. Although the girls from the reception were helpful, there were extremely rare smiles and the general atmosphere was bad. There is one guy working there who was messing up the work of the others in front of guests. He was very often in a very bad mood and got rude from time to time to ladies, colleagues and other guests.Atmosphere is bad as well because it is kind of a cramped place, because no music is playing. Stuff does not try to create good atmosphere, just put on tv.There is very very few privacy because the three showers with toilets are very small and the sinks are in the recpetion area.Although it was clean inside the building, the outside stairs to the street entrance were dirty and it always smelled over there. The terrace could be really nice, but the best part is not part of the hostel ("access just for stuff") and very dirty too. They used this part for the dog to shit while gusts tried to enjoy the view to the Sea.
