Liked: Perfection! Felt like home as soon as I walked in, super friendly and knowledgable staff, great cosy common areas to meet people, lots of activities on offer (free walking tour with David was a great intro to the city), dorms well designed with extra comfy beds and beautiful bathrooms, perfect location near shops metro and Lapa nightlife. No keys - just a welcome from staff every time you come in. Every detail has been thought about. Oh and the breakfast is fantastic! I wish all hostels were the like this 1

Disliked: That I had to leave!

Liked: Great atmosphere and awesome staff. Very close to Gloria metro station giving easy access to other places in the city. Close enough to walk to Lapa area for the stairs and a night out. Staff were great on check-in, explaining where to go, what to do, how to get to all the points of interest in the city and where to avoid. Never had any problems in the area around the local area.

Disliked: Kitchen a little small, but was never a problem while I was there and the hostel seemed reasonably full.

Liked: 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.

Liked: Clean spacious rooms, social area for breakfast and for hanging out in the evenings. Good way to meet other travellers in a very pleasant atmosphere.Jade gave us a map and drew lots of useful stuff inside including the bus numbers on how to get there. The location was super close to Gloria station, lots of bus stations and close to the nightlife área of Lapa.

Disliked: The second night we stayed in a private room (number 2) which had very little space for clothes, etc, (no wardrobes like in the dorm rooms) and it was right next to the bathrooms so you could hear everybody shower and brush their teeth. also the window was right next to the social área and you could hear almost every conversation. i definitely recommend the dorm rooms instead. they are more spacious and pleasant and quiet.

Liked: This was one of my favourite hostels during my whole trip. The staff are so helpful with showing you how best to get around Rio. There is an awesome common area which is great for meeting other travellers. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfy. Met some great people here and was very sad to leave. You can book trips/transport at Reception and they make it very easy for you. Would thoroughly recommend and would definitely stay again - stay here!

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Best hostel I have stayed in so far. Great atmosphere and breakfast. Staff really friendly and able to help you out with anything you need. No need to take a guide book if you stay here as they provide you with so many tips, reccommendations and deals. Location is perfect as it is situated right by the metro and walking distance to the party district of Lapa.
