Welll what can I say about this hostel... It's wonderful, Why? well... I live and Brasil and travel a lot in my country and always sleep in hostels, so I can garantee is a wonderful experience because the staff is lovely, a real brasilian soul, so if you need something they help with "brasilian ways" KKKKKK well the location is good, you can go walking visit good bars and clubs in Santa Theresa where we have the real "Carioca way of bars" KKKK Can you imagine that? Is where we have most tradicional and funny carnival blocs... It´s wonderful! To finish (my English is not goood goooood...) always in the sunset, guests are inviting news guests who arrived to enjoy the parties so the atmosphere in the hostel is friendly and you can feel is a safe place to relax and enjoy AND IS CHEAP! and you can go everywhere by subway.

Room Tip: All bedroom you can sleep all day long if you want, but the bedrooms behind the stairs are quieter.

I had such a great and cool time in Brazil and staying in this hostel added to my experience being even more richer! I was received with so much love and looked after very well. I'd like to acknowledge all the staff especially Maria and Ricardo for being a part of my super cool experience and trip.

It's very difficult to sum up just how incredible this hostel is. I stayed here during the World Cup and even though the hostel was full every day, the staff still had all the time in the world for you. It's in a great location with excellent views. Lapa, which is an excellent night out, is walking distance away. The beaches are really accessible because Gloria Metro stop is only a 10 minute walk downhill (probably worth getting a motorbike or a taxi for the trip back up). The hostel itself is very clean, the breakfast is nice and it's even got a swimming pool - which is amazing. The absolute jewel in the crown of this extraordinary hostel though is the staff that work here. As it says in my title, they really have set a new high standard in customer service. The best service I've had anywhere, in any country, from any type of company, ever!!!

Room Tip: You won't need to spend time in your room ;)

I have travelled around 9 countries in África, 6 in South América, 2 in Central América, 5 in Asia and tons in Europe, and this is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The owner and staff simply cannot do enough for you. Whether it's booking a taxi, mixing a first rate caipirinha, finding you chargers and adapters or taking you out on an all-nighter in Lapa! The atmosphere is really tranquil. The decoration and design is well thought out, it is beautifully clean, the pool is wonderful and the view is lovely. It is easy to stroll down the hill to the metro (8-10 mins) and to get a motorbike back up the hill, so the beaches are accessible. Also, Lapa is walking distance. The only problem is that Rio is such a gorgeous city that it's just not possible to spend enough time in the hostel! This has to be the best value for money in town.

Great environment to stay in Rio! Right from the start they welcomed me into the hostel, sorted out the taxi driver and organised some great things to see and do. I had a single room with a balcony over looking rio which was amazing. The location is out of the way so you have a bit of a walk from the trains but it's worth it. Thanks team see you next time I'm in Rio!
