Myself and my wife booked a private room in this hostel for three nights. The accommodation is basic enough but the staff and the vibe are nice. Location is really good for the beach. The hostel and surrounding area feel really safe.

It's very well located in Ipanema, between the beach and the lagoon, close to the restaurants/shopping area. Breakfast is nice, as is the pool and most of the crew. The general atmosphere was very good. The two private rooms we have tried were basic, with only beds and no stowage. Ipanema by itself is off Rio's nightlife center, but very...

Very well located, near the beach, and not expensive at all. But these are the only good things I can say about this place. Rooms are dark and not confortable at all. Bathroom is not clean at all. Breakfast is poor, coffee is bad. But the worst thing is the the "funk carioca" the employees use to listen almost all...

Hello, Fernandosouzafilho, thank you for your comments. Feedbacks are always very important to our team and we are happy to know that you liked our localization. However we are deeply sorry that your experience was not satisfactory. We do pursue a high standard of service, but naturally there are differences, including infrastructure, from hotels to hostels. Our rooms aren’t really...

I browsed some of the other comments and there seems to be a disconnect between understanding the differences in a Hostel vs a Hotel. For the first weekend during the World Cup all I was looking for was a room that didn't break the bank in a nice area, and this is what I got. It was an easy to...

The colorful Hostel is located close to Ipanema Beach. We stayed for 3 nights. It is charming, simple, clean and affordable in price. Friendly and very helpful staff. I would not hesitate to stay another time.

The hostel is charming; everything in warm and nice colors. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms, however, could do much better. Breakfast is really good (they're serving fresh cake every day). In addition they've got a bar with affordable prices. It is only a five minutes walk from legendary Ipanema beach. The area around the hostel is...

This hostel is simple but relatively good in the category. Anyway, dont expect much. What is really good is the location that is in the heart of Ipanema - close to Posto 9. You can walk to Lebon ( about a 20-min walk).
