Reception: As you walk in the reception area is quite big, there are two computers for you to use but I don't think they print, large sofa around the window are and a smal reception desk. You can use wifi too.
Staff: Englsih speaking and so helpful. This was my second day in Rio, I found all staff members to be friendly, gave good advice for on what to see, where to go best way to get around.
Rooms: I stayed here for three nights in an 18 bed dorm (name began with M), its a L shaped room and you're better off staying the one of the bunks closer to the door as the other side is more crowded. I think any room on this side of the hostel is better placed as we had access to three showers, three toilets just outside of the room...all clean and hot water any time of the day. The room was also cheap.
Breakfast: As standard every morning there are trays set up with a plate, slice of cheese, slice of ham, one piece of fruit. You can have as much bread, tea and juice as you want. There is also a big toaster for you to make toasties or toast.
Location: two blocks from Copacobana beach (not even a 5 minute walk), access to all buses and the metro station. Loads of places to eat and supermarkets too.
The restaurant is also great, they have a good choice of food and serve til 10:00 p.m I think.
All in all a good experience
