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.
I loved everything about Discovery hostel. It's by far the absolute best hostel I've stayed at. It's in a safe location, you feel safe in the hostel, the atmosphere is relaxed, friendly and comforting. You can go parting or relax, whatever works for you. Many of the staff live here so it's like you are in an actual home. It's clean, well lit, excellent value. You can cook, chill out, watch tv, go exploring, whatever. The philosophy here is about enjoying living and making the most out of life and the staff will do all they can to help you with anything. 100% of the staff have been incredible which in my experience is not usually the way. Love it.

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
the common areas are very nice and the staff super friendly! has a nice view of the ocean and good location for beaches.

The stuffs, especially Fei An, are very friendly and helpful. I feel like home. I love this place and I feel save to walk around. The local people who stay in this area are very friendly and helpful too. So make this as your first choice and you will see another side of Rio De Jeneiro.
The hostel is located in one of the favela's of Rio. The 4 hosts of the hostel were all very friendly and willing to help me with whatever question I had. While staying at their hostel I felt part of the community! Several workshops - such as a workshop to make wallets from waste - are organized for the residents of Barracco and the habitants of the favela. I even got offered to give an English course to the children of the neighborhood. This was really one of the most interesting places I visited on my trip!

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.
A great location in the favela. The area really wasn't what I was expecting, the favela is basically a neighbourhood of the city with great community spirit. Everyone we passed was very friendly and welcoming. Tito and Vanessa are great, they are really friendly and great to have a chat with. Vanessa knows Rio inside out. Local buses pass the entrance of the favela and go to Ipanema, Copacabana and Centro. Highly recommended!

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.

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).
Elisa, Sid and Hermes were so nice. You feel at home there! The are very helpful. The favela tour is very interesting. Near to buses and metro station. The terrace is the best part of the house to have ga drink at the end of the day.

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.
La ubicación es excelente, la vista maravillosa. El entorno es seguro y muy agradable. Hay locales para comer baratos y muy buenos cerca. El acceso a transporte que te lleva a todos lados es ideal. Se puede llegar a cualquier lado muy rapidamente. Todo el staff (desde los la recepción hasta las chicas del aseo) es una maravilla. Todos muy atentos y amables. Son lo mejor. Siempre estuvieron dispuestos a ayudarnos en todo. Especiales gracias a Rafael, por toda la atención brindada. El desayuno es buenísimo, y la estadía completa fue un agrado. Volveremos siempre allá cuando vayamos a Río, sin falta.

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!
Good beds, each with power socket and light, big lockers. Caipirinha happy hour Friday and Saturday great vibe! Location is awesome for lapa partying.

Great location (just off the main street with all the Lapa bars but far enough that you can get some sleep), nice staff, a standard hostel breakfast included. Three computers for internet access and WiFi too. Hostel is gated so safe although Lapa isn't as dangerous as some people make out.
Great and gentle staff, check in as a host and check out as a friend. Strong cultural environment, with graffitis, painted walls and always with a nice and cool soundtrack. Great location. Everything new and clean at hostel.

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.
