    The hostel is located away from the buzzling city so perfect to unwind after a tiring day of activities or after a wild party night. It is however just a short walk to lapa or you can order a Uber. The common area is just great. Perfect to have a beer and meet other people. The view at night looks like a surreal painting, just made for you. So look no further, this is the hostel you want stay at!

    The pockets of the pool table are too small, making it difficult to win..

    I use to go to this place and love the self service breakfast (instead of being served). Thanks!

    The view is amazing. The hostel is very clean. Location is wonderfull as it is on top of a hill, but a part from the parque das ruinas, there's not really a lot to do, so you should walk 15-20 minutes down the hill to enjoy the city (which is very close, once you're down the hill).

    I have good and bad feedback To give regarding this hostel. + : the amazing view you have from some rooms and from the big terrace. The breakfast also is very good. The staff was nice but we would have appreciated to have more advise from them.

    the common bathroom/toilets... very very dirty. And what is very very very disturbing is that you cannot close the door when you take a shower or in thé toilets. Everybody can see you! Better To choose the private room.

    Staff was friendly, the view is unbelievable. Breakfast was amazing

    It is located on hills with a bad road. So sometimes Uber refuses to go there.
