Liked: Great location, 10 min walk to lapa, 20min bus to copacabana, 5 min to tube, always felt safe and secure.Clean facilities. Good wifi connectivity. Decent breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff.

Disliked: Room was decent but no character (box room) and quite small. Pretty noisy late at night but got quiet eventually (our rooms window overlooked the kitchen/social area), communal pc's very old, not much atmosphere.

Liked: It's a very good place to reach, 5 minutes walk from Gloria station. The Bus from the International Airport stop near Gloria station too. Nice renovated house. High ceilings. Good breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Lockers in rooms. You can even walk to the center from here. Busse to Pao de azucar and the train staion of the Corcorvado leave at Gloria street too. If you don't need nearby to the beaches but a very good location to all its your place.

Disliked: Rooms facing to the street can be loud, nothing for to sensible people, better ask for rooms in the back.

Liked: What a quality place! Good rooms, great kitchen, clean bathrooms, good hang-out areas and homey atmosphere. The staff makes the place run smoothly, they are always ready to help you out with anything you need, and are super friendly. This place is perfectly located, 2 steps away from Glória Metro Station, supermarket, farmacy, restaurant and grocery stores. It´s a hostel you will remember staying at for all the right reasons! Couldn´t recommend it more! ( Side note: the breakfast is VERY NICE!!!)

Disliked: NOTHING!!!!
