The best kept secret hostel in Rio is changing - and this is not good news! This perfectly located three-stories house has been my favourite budget accommodation in Rio for more than I'd like to admit - 10 bloody years!! Only two blocks from the best part of Leblon beach, this nice, clean and unpretentious little hostel has made a few recent renovations turning the ground floor into a small restaurant open for non guests. The result is unattractive and it has ruined the beach house mood, moving the bar and eliminating the TV room. Anyways, if you want to spend one night in Rio just to enjoy a mid-week dive for less than USD 30, it is still a smart choice - and you get a free caipirinha.
recent renovations on the ground floor stink (it looks unfinished you guys), and I'm afraid there's more to come - enjoy while you can!
Facility was good
The bathroom could be cleanered more often.
Location was good.
The service is bad. If I had to book an accommodation again, I would not book it here precisely because of the service. This refers especially to employees at the reception. They showed zero flexibility towards guests. What also caused my attention are torn sheets, below average basic breakfast, and filthy restrooms.
Cleaness could be improved
