Very good location, next to the metro station, close to the Copacabana beach. Not far from the vans that take you up to the Christ. Friendly staff that tell you all the options you have to visit the most of Rio in the time you have. Good breakfast with fruits, bread and cereals. Always clean.

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
