This hostel is just 4 blocks from Copacabana beach and the price is cheap
The beds were a little hard but nothing too terrible
Location was good. The desk clerks were friendly. Jessica, in particular, was extremely friendly and helpful!!
My dorm was more crowded than any I've ever stayed in. Very tiny room with 6 bunk beds. Also, the cook who made breakfast each morning was so grumpy, she really bordered on rude! Made for an unpleasant start to the morning.
The staff was very helpful in recommending places, and allowing me to modify my booking last minute, which was really kind. There were plenty of bathrooms and I saw two spaces to hang out, which is always a plus in a hostel to meet people. The location was great because it was just blocks from the beach but also very close to the metro and at night, there's a lot going on, which was great.
The beds were very poor. Hard plastic mattress and pillow, and you have to make and unmake it yourself. The common spaces were right next to the room (I think this was true of all rooms), and people were talking soo loudly early like pre breakfast, one of which was staff watching a video very loudly on phone. Because of these two reasons, I don't think the cost/value ratio was worth it.
Great location, very clean, with a nice common area, very cozy place. Staff was helpful, the breakfast is good and there is a quite nice kitchen.
Rooms are a little too small and the beds could be better.
Nice, friendly staff who are always helpful. Cleanliness ok, some public areas could be cleaner, but manageable. Good, steady wifi (between 5 to 20mbps, sometimes faster, depending on time of day). Simple breakfast but good enough.
The place overall is quite small, tho I never found it to be a huge problem... except that the hangout area on 2nd floor is right next to the dorm rooms. So you'll hear people's loud conversations and phone calls late at night sometimes. The room for the 6-bed dorm is also kinda small - a suitcase will block 70% of the way, and some people WILL put their suitcase in the way.
