“Good location and nice staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2012

I spent one night last July in this hostel, I was staying in a 8-bed dorm. The staff is very cool and looking to help you. The location is perfect, in Botafogo very close to the subway and to Copacabana. The price is fair for the service.

Stand Fast hostel is great! It is well situated, very clean, and has a super friendly staff that is more than wiling to provide helpful information, translate into several different languages, or just hang out with a beer and a chat. The hostel offers free internet/Wifi, a several flat screen televisions, personal lockers underneath each bed to store valuables, HOT WATER, and is well connected with tour providers operating in the greater Rio area. A daily breakfast of fresh fruit, cheeses, meats, jams, juices and coffee is also provided by Stand Fast. I definitely recommend Stand Fast hostel to anyone looking for a clean, safe, and friendly place to rest their head.

Located in the interesting neighborhood of Botafogo, near bus stops and station Metro. Good facilities. The owners and staff are very well experienced, helpful and friendly. The rooms are nice and bathrooms are clean. I really liked the kitchen to guests' disposal, although I have not used. The breakfast offered is satisfactory - always with two types of fruits, juice, cake, French type bread, cheese and ham. Large living room where you can watch TV or chat with other guests. Also available are computers and internet wifi.

We received a great reception from the staff when we arrived. We were in a very comfy 4 man dorm with much needed aircon. Kitchen was well stocked and the all you can eat hot dogs were exactly what they said on the tin. We ended up staying 10 days instead of 4!
