Liked: Everything was amazing. The staff were so helpful and nice and someone was always around to help. Its more like living in a beach house and felt more like a home stay as we had the place mostly to ourselves. Huge kitchen and such an amazing breakfast everyday. Rooms big and clean with lockers.

Disliked: Nada

Liked: Nice kitchen and living room area; however, it's shared with the family who owns the hostel, so often the common areas are occupied by the family. Porch overlooks beautiful cliffs and ocean!

Disliked: The location offers beautiful views, but is far from any shops. To get to the heart of Leblon and Ipanema takes closer to 30 minutes at a brisk pace. Also, not a great atmosphere for socializing with fellow travelers. Especially far from nightlife.

Beach / sunbathing

Liked: Great stay! It's more like a big beach house rather than a hostel. Stayed with a friend in a private room. The owner Vivian is extremely nice and ready to help you with anything. The bar is a good bonus, you can by frozen foods and drinks if you're too tired to go out. You pay when you leave. Though at the end we didn't even have to pay for our rental bikes because to Vivian everything is a 'no problem'! Good location, Leblon beach is within a 10min walk and a smaller beach right down the hill. Taxi to Ipanema or Copacabana is around 15 reais. The house has cats inside.

Disliked: Some nights you could hear dogs barking outside

Liked: I was really amazed when I arrived at Solar Chacara... I've been to many Hostels around the world but this is the one that I could actually live in for few years.. It's a massive house turned into a Hostel. The living room is massive and beatiful, the staff are helpful and friendly! The location could not be better - 5 min walk to Leblon! So yes, Highly reccomend it!! Tks

Disliked: No dislikes for me!
