Nice and big doubleroom with conf bed, clean linen, towel, TV and an efficient air con. Very good breakfast, nice staff and good prices for drinks.Welcome drink for hostelbookers :)

Disliked: Some times we needed some infos from the reception, but nobody was there. Kitchen and bathrooms could be cleaner...

Liked: Location! Fantastic to be in the heart of Lapa

Disliked: Everything else! When we arrived we were told they had stuffed up out booking so we couldn't have our private room, and ended up being in different rooms altogether. The staff don't speak English except one, breakfast is the worst we've had (literally bread & fake cheese) and only one other guest spoke English / would socialize. A lot of older people staying so atmosphere sucked. Bathrooms also filthy & general cleanliness poor. Rio is amazing, Lapa is amazing, location is unbeatable for nightlife but that's the only good thing here!!!

Liked: Staff are friendly, honest, helpful. Location is good. Its quiet.

Disliked: This is the first place I stayed in South America. It is a quite first stop but it is missing so much! No real common room, they charge you to use the one laptop they have for the internet (they have free wireless though), breakfast is basic and not open buffet (one serving per person). Security is a pain, they dont have a buzzer and someone has to walk down to unlock the gate every time you want to come and go.
