Staff were absolutely excellent, very accommodating. Extremely friendly. Spoke English very well and made us feel very welcome. Would go back in a heart beat
Confortable, super clean, Nice common areas, confortable beds, AC, internet, and the decoration for the carnaval is amazing! Great location and super nice stuff. International hostel, and if it was not fully booked, I would of stayed here longer!!!! Super recommend
They should start the AC in the dorms as the sun sets, because it’s very hot in Rio and it’s nice to arrive after a day outside in a cool room. Besides that it was amazing
The location is very good, close to the metro station and Botafogo Beach. The place is big and clean and the kitchen is very practical.
The staff is really not friendly and looks annoyed anytime you talk to them. Also, one of the guys of the staff just enters the rooms without knocking as is he was home, with no respect for the hosts and their privacy, even in the girl's dorm. Also when customers arrive late at night the staff just gets in the rooms and speaks out loud without caring about the people already sleeping inside. Finally, the air conditioning was extremely cold in the room when it was super hot outside. Every girl in the room was freezing so I went to ask if we could increase the temperature and they just said no (I've never seen such a behavior in a hostel before). Also we are in 2020 now, a little sens of ecology wouldn't be too much.
Staff were extremely friendly and polite. All spoke very good English. Facilities were clean and beds were comfortable. All bunk beds came with a socket which is useful. Very good location for rio, Copacabana and flamengo are all walking distances. Close to the Metro too.
staff crew is incredible very helpful and willing.
it’s a very neat place. the air conditioner is an issue (it’s very cold and all of them are linked)
