Can't explain how good this place is. Perfect location and it's got a pool which is pretty much unheard of for a hostle. Great friendly happy vibes all day. Can't even begin to say how great Marcos and Ulises were as hosts and as now new found friends. Always happy to help and will guide you to the best nights...

My first experience of a hostel - it was nice! Besides the resident druggie who was smoking at every minute of the day in the lobby (so uncomfortable to walk through his clouds), a great welcome. Very picturesque setup and fantastic location next to the beach and close to shops/sights! Also a very safe neighbourhood and safe hostel too However...

The location was perfect! Few streets from the beach, safe, very close to metro station and bus stops. Hostel was constantly cleaned. The atmosphere was fun for young people. Stuff was very helpful and friendly. I had some issues with booking ( I paid for extra day by mistake) by the time I arrived home, all was sorted. The only...

The best thing about this hostel is the communal areas; it's very easy to meet new people and make friends around the pool, at breakfast, or in the front seating area. The wifi is good but to back up photos you need to find a time when there's few people using it, and the front area is better than the...

I found this hostel quite nice, the people working and staying there were nice, friendly and really willing to help. It was easy to make friends, as the set up of the hostel is really cousy it made me feel home. The kitchen was fully equipped and I loved that they had coffee for free all the time. The pool...

My husband and I stayed here the weekend of the Olympics and absolutely loved it. We got a private room with a bathroom which worked out really well. The staff were awesome - super helpful and accommodating. They had someone making caipirinhas in the lobby area which was a nice way to kick back before going out. The hostel itself...

After hearing rave reviews and seeing the score online I had high hopes for this hostel but was left feeling a bit flat after I checked out. On the plus side the hostel is pretty clean, the kitchen is lovely, the pool area is great and the location is fantastic. However, there didn't seem to be much of an atmosphere...

The people that worked here were great and extremely helpful. My only issue was that the place, particularly the bathrooms were not clean. I never thought of myself as a "clean freak" and I have stayed in hostels before but I felt this was a major drawback.

Friendly, clean, and safe hostel! Great hostel, met people as soon as I arrived in the nice common areas! Went out dancing in Lapa til 5am the first night! The people I met left, and the next night I decided to stay in/didn't try to go out but I didn't see too many people around so its not crazy everynight!...
