We stayed here for 3 nights. After having a bad experience elsewhere we were sorry we hadn't stayed here longer instead. The staff were so friendly and helpful and there is a great atmosphere. The bathrooms are really nice and clean as is the kitchen. The location is brilliant with everything on its doorstep. Chris the owner was so helpful...

I am very skeptical of staying at hostels and always prefer hotels. I am glad I chose Harmonia, I...

I can not recommend this hostel enough. Saskia and Chris are some of the loveliest people I've been fortunate enough to meet. They were always around for anything you needed. The location of the hostel is also excellent, close to everything you need and incredibly safe, I did not feel unsafe in this area once. I met some great people...

Before arriving to this place, i was a bit afraid, since my last hostel experience had been 5 years ago.

This hostel is perfect - it has everything you need (lockers/Aircon/clean bathrooms) and Ipanema is a great location. What makes the place so special are the staff. Staff is probably the wrong word as it feels more like a home with a family. Chris, Saskia and Elena made an effort to get to know and help everyone, never been made...
