İ hate everything in this hostel. Not Good wifi connection at room, not clean, not hot water on the bathroom, not helpful or friendly stuff they even not take a hi, i higly not recommend to stay here worse expreince in Rio
The location is good if you're a backpacker. The accommodation is a short walk to some of the main attractions in Lapa such as Arcos da Lapa and the old Tram line to Santa Teresa. CBD is also easy to access from there if you're travelling for business.
Well, the accommodation is just in front of a very busy and noisy street. What to expect? The neighbourhood is quite active all night long even in the weekdays. I know that's not a problem of the hostel anyway. Authorities are just useless. There's a police station on the other side of the street. You might hear homeless people screaming at the streets and stupidly noisy motorbikes at 4 am in the morning. If you’re looking for a quiet place to get a decent night of sleep, I recommend you to consider another place to stay.
Nice staff ,good location
The location is convenient for who's wanting to explore or be based in central Rio de Janeiro. It's walking distance to most of the important things there: cathedral, Lapa, museums, etc. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast is decent. The atmosphere in general is friendly too. The rooms are spacious (mine had a balcony with a view) and each bed has its own AC plug.
The bathrooms have a SERIOUS smelling problem. I found myself delaying the moment to use them because of the impact that it produces you to go inside every time. Also, a minor annoyance is the keys system. In the beginning you'll probably forget to carry your key and until you learn your lesson, you'll find yourself repeatedly asking someone to open the door for you because it locks when you close it. They should provide a lock for your locker instead, this is a shared room for 8. I don't see the point in having this system. The WiFi doesn't reach the whole property and is not so good.
