Liked: Great breakfast. Good showers. Fridges in the rooms. Close to Gloria tube station which is handy for getting into the city centre or out to Copacababa or Ipanema. Also close to Lapa which has great nightlife but we were warned to take a taxi at night rather than walk due to robberies around Lapa. However we felt safe in the area around the hostel.

Disliked: Not a great neighbourhood for travellers as not much around. Not actually located in Santa Teresa (as described online). Santa Teresa is a 25min walk up a very steep hill. Also there was no aircon in our room and the fan was very noisy.
