“Cheap but very nasty”
Reviewed 30 July 2009

We stayed here as it was the cheapest option we could find around carnival time. Have stayed in better hostels - bathroom had plain concrete floor, horrible but working shower and toilet. Room v small and beds v basic, but as we weren't planning to spend much time there (just out at carnival etc) it wasn't too bad. However, buffet breakfast was disgusting - had hairs in butter and had been left out goodness knows how long. If you can stand what is really a -2 star hotel just to be in the are it is fine though, and close to the sambodrome.
