Nice energy and caring environment!!
The staff were extremely helpful sorting out transport and flights and providing all necessary information during Coronavirus outbreak. A great location and very sociable hostel with a great bar and atmosphere. Lovely range at free breakfast. Friendly and welcoming.
This was the best place you could stay at if coming to Rio, especially during the time of carnival. Made so many friends the hostel is like one big family who all party and go out with each other every night. A huge thanks to Felipe and Alonzo and the rest of the team for making it an experience to remember, and the breakfasts here are insane!!! Best hostel, 100% recommend
This place is CRAZY during carnival. It’s a true party hostel with a great vibe, very easy to make friends. The bar/ common area is a lot of fun, lots of people from other hostels come here to party! Staff are all absolutely lovely and they pretty much organise the whole group to go out partying to blocos or clubs together. Despite it being super busy during carnival, the cleaners are around cleaning constantly. It still never stays clean for long but the effort they go to is outstanding. Location is close to downtown and Lapa so super convenient. There’s a supermarket, pizza place, and pharmacy on the same street and some bars a 5 min walk away. Good breakfast with proper English & Irish tea, and vegemite for the aussies. I really loved Books!
This is a party hostel - the music and crowds clear by midnight but it is basically constantly noisy during carnival, so if you want to sleep this place is not for you. AC is in most rooms but not all.
