Liked: Shower facilities were clean

Liked: This is my home away from home in Rio. Samba Green is social without being a super-party hostel. Great for couples, friends and solo travelers alike. Super friendly and helpful staff. Close enough to the tourist attractions to easily get around but far enough to get a feel for local life too. I highly recommend it!

Disliked: I seemed to come at peak mosquito season...just make sure you bring bug repellent!

Liked: It was an ok place to stayt. The hostel owner Carlos was an absolute gent and greeted us with caprhinis on arrival.. However, other staff were fairly bit and miss.. The room was nice and had great shutter windows to keep the sun out and allow a sleep in. Breakfast was good and the showers were nice

Disliked: Some staff were rude, some annoying. It was a bit annoying that they often had tv/ music on really Loud late into the night... I would get over that though... except that morning staff would come on around 7/8 and put the tv/ music on full blast then as well!!! That was REALLY annoying. I went out to ask someone to turn it down one morning and 7am on a Sunday and there was noone even at reception, just the TV blaring. I wasn't a huge fan of the place, not much atmposphere and they didn't have much information- would try find it if you asked but were incredibly slow at it even then...
