Os funcionários do Hostel, apesar de gentis, não souberam passar informações básicas. Perguntei onde havia um cinema perto, e me informaram que "talvez" tivesse no shopping Botafogo, porém no meio do caminho para o shopping há um grande cinema (uma ou duas quadras do Hostel). Questionei também como eu poderia chegar ao Centro e a funcionária me indicou a estação de metrô mais próxima, porém naquela estação só embarcam pessoas que possuem vale (cartão) que, por óbvio, não é o caso de turistas. Também ocorreu de a funcionária não saber me explicar como chegar ao bairro Jardim Botânico.
