The name may only fit with the location of the place, but the hostel itself is just one to leave your bags, and get out, IF you find space for it in your matchbox room.
the entry way is one of those colonial doors only opens to one side, when you are inside of the place you feel so trapped, but more so when you go into your room you literally feel like you are in jail. to try to maximize space they have placed 3 bunk beds of 3 levels each, that wouldn't be a problem if the beds were not touching each other. the mattress are of plastic, I can't even imagine sleeping there on a hot summer night; the only thing they are good for is to avoid bed bugs. the beds are so close together in hight that my friend hit her head getting up at night and even thought she was bleeding. the place is filthy as were the plastic mattress, and the bathroom is just as tiny, you feel so awkward using the bathrooms inside and already matchbox room. You have to pay R$5.00 for internet, R$20.00 deposit for your sheets, R$2.00 to store your luggage, and can't check in before 2pm. Only reason this place is worth staying at is because of the close location to Copa Cabana
