I've just been on a 3 month trip in South America and this is honestly the best hostel I stayed in the whole time! Amazing atmosphere (great caiprinhas at the bar), incredibly helpful staff (including in a fairly horrible money situation my friend had), great clean rooms & bathrooms and a lovely sociable communal area. These guys do everything a good hostel should do, stay here.

Great location- 5 mins from the beach. Loads of shops, markets, restaurants. You can get a 15 min cab/ metro to Lapa if you're going out. Big lockers to keep your bag in. Staff are lovely and really helpful, and you can handily book tours through them. Rooms are cleaned everyday. Really lovely hotel!

The staff really make this place special. They are such a nice bunch and although I know they change over regularly, the place seems to attract really great people. If you want an awesome social experience, then this is the place for you. It's all about the nightlife here and the guys who work there make sure everyone has fun.

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.
