I absolutely loved this hostel it was by far the best i have stayed in. The location couldnt have been better.
This is a new hostel in Lapa, so the place is organized and the beds are pretty confortable. It looks much better than the other hostels in the same área because of its design and service - the whole staff is very welcoming and helpful!

Very nice place, positive, communicate and polite staff. Stayed only 2 days and it was clean, comfortable, good wi-fi, location, price and tasty breakfast. My recomendations to everybody.
Excellet hostel. Very homely feel and seems to attract the right kind of travellers. Staff were fantastic and the breakfast was pretty decent. Definitely one of the most comfortable and sociable hostels I've stayed in. Also very nicely located... a walk away from Lapa and Santa Teresa and a metro ride away from the beaches. Nicely situated in the middle of everything really.

This property is all it has been described as and more. The views are absoutely amazing. It has a rocking bar and an awesome DJ. The many different actors and actresses who come to the property just to be photographed because of the view really amazed me. The staff are friendly and very helpful. They went above and beyond for me and anyone else who asked. They even offer the same touristic tours you can get in town at a great discounted price.
It offers stunning views over Vidigal favela, Leblon and Ipanema beaches which is worth the fee alone. The favela is safe and the community is really friendly. The staff here are really welcoming and fun people. I love this place so much I am staying here for another month! I don't want to leave. Amazing hostel!

Jose and Ricardo were great hosts - always willing to help. The place was exceptionally clean and the breakfasts were vastly superior to anything we have had elsewhere in South America.
Fantastic place to stay. Jose and Ricardo are more than accommodating — they'll help you out with whatever you need — plus they put on a fantastic breakfast. Facilities where great too — 24/7 hot showers, clean toilets and an immaculate self-service kitchen. Sao Cristovao Metro station is only a 5-10 minute walk away, making it easy to get around Rio.

Everything, superb breakfast, beautiful room , exquisite decoration, helpful staff, amazing views from terrace.
We had a double private with ensuite in a bungalow on top of the building. It was isolated from everyone else and felt very private. We also had an amazing view of the bay from our shower. The location is excellent, right next to Sugarloaf Mountain and the bus to Ipanaema and Copacobana is right outside the front door.

This hostel has the most friendly and helpful and fun staff of any place I have ever stayed! The location is also awesome, although it's a bit further from the beaches, it's so easy to catch a bus or the metro to them. Lapa is alive at night and so much fun to stay in with loads of character. The hostel is big and the atmosphere is really nice. The beds are great, we stayed in the 23 bed dorm and we thought it would be really cramped but it wasn't, large proper beds and enough space for everyone. An awesome place you stay, you couldn't have a bad time!
Manga seemed to be pretty much brand new. We were at the end of our travels and it was so nice to sit in the lounge and just chill with a big tv!

Great location, just 3 minutes walk from Largo do Santino, in Vidigal. Very friendly neighbours. After a few days, I felt very much at home in the location. I always felt safe when walking about and shopping in Vidigal. The property was secured by a surrounding wall with locked door onto the street. Vanessa provided excellent and sensitive support in helping me to settle in to the house and is location. Vanessa had lots of useful knowledge and advice to help me to make the most of my first trip to Rio.
Great place to stay in Rio. Venessa and Tito are very helpfull. Excellent value for money and a more 'Brazilian' experience than staying in Leblon, Ipanema or Copacabana. Highly recommendable.

Carioca's USP is that its a guest house. Being not too crowded makes the place more cosy, friendly, relaxed and secure for its guests. The colonial setup of the property adds to it. Was a home away from home for me. The owners are very nice, always helpful to cater to the needs of the guests. They welcome you with a smile and ensure that you have a pleasant stay. I was really impressed with their homework towards maintaining the atmosphere at Carioca. Great job guys !! Rooms were clean with comfortable beds and had air-con. No problem of bugs. Was lucky to have the single separate bed as I was staying for a long time. Thanks to Liam for that consideration. The private bathrooms and other amenities were up to the mark. A spacious lounge area made for a great place to interact with other guests. The neighbourhood is great. Pretty much in proximity to everything one would need as a traveller. Loved my time there. Couldn't have asked for more. My stay there has left an indelible mark in my memory.
They treat you more like a local and friend rather than a tourist. They wont sell you on tours, but can get in contact with them. They offer sound advice to save you money. It´s small with only 14 beds b/t 2 rooms and there´s some long term guests. Good location near bus stops and about 10 min walk to metro. The rooms feel more like a hostel, but everything else feels like a guest house.

Freiendly staff & Clean place. Good place to stay if you like a quite athmosphre.
Wonderful hosts; very genuine and hard-working. They're extremely helpful without being intrusive in any way. They also have the cutest 18-month-old who loves new people. Located just steps away from the Lapa Arches; very happening place. Definitely a little more character on this side of town than Copacabana/Inpanema. Bathrooms/room/kitchen very clean and cozy. Definitely worth every penny (or centavo).

Fatima, daughter Julia and housekeeper were all very friendly and helpful. Room clean, beautifully decorated apartment, given own space to come and go as pleased. Very safe, fantastic location. Felt very at home here. Stayed with partner twice and alone here once. Will be returning again if ever in rio. Definitely recommend.
Fátima es lo más! Si van a Río deberían alojarse en lo de Fátima. Su casa está super bien ubicada, en el Barrio Leblon, uno de los más lindos. Las habitaciones son muy lindas y limpias, al igual que los lugares comunes de la casa. Fátima es muy agradable y te ayuda un montón con el viaje, dándote todos los detalles que necesitas para tu estadía. No sólo lo recomiendo, sino que si vuelvo a Río no dudaría en parar allí!
