Great location, 2 minutes walk to Copacabana beach, the staff were friendly and helpful and they had several good tours. The reception and bar area were clean and well maintained. The dorms were OK beds comfortable. Breakfast was substantial.The bathrooms need to be renovated. The toilet cubicles offered little privacy. Only three male toilets and there was a constant smell of urine. If they renovated the bathrooms especially with fully enclosed toilet cubicles this would be a great hostel.

Positiv: Close to copacabana beach Clean beds and towels Negative Staff unfriendly, hardly speaks English Constant smell of urine Party hostel - always loud, no 'quite time' at night On one night the rest of the hostel guests starter a party and during the whole night one could hear them yell and throw up. In the morning at 8 the toilets where still not cleaned and it was impossible to use the bathrooms

this is the worst hostel I have ever visited. It smelled like piss, the 'suite' was small, dark and damp, the refrigerator was rusty, the mattress was lumpy, the bed was decrepit, and you could not get wifi in the room. Furthermore, the hostel hosted a party from 11 PM-5 AM that kept me awake all night! If I had made that kind of noise I would have been asked to leave!

Muy buena la ubicaciòn y la atenciòn del personal fue excelente. El desayuno bàsico y breve. La cocina pequeña y con pocos elementos. No dan toallas ni tienen para alquiler,solo venden y caras. Es el primer Hostel de HI en Brazil que no da toallas. Siempre recomiendo los Hostels de HI. Soy socio desde 1994 ,acaba de expirar mi carnet y pienso renovarlo. Gracias por estar pendientes de mi opiniòn. Les saludos cordialmente. Cèsar Torres.

El personal carece de información. No había ningún material turístico. No había mapa de la ciudad ni del metro. La atención en el desayuno que es sencillo tiene carencias. Faltó comida y otra vez leche y tuve que llamar porque no había nadie. La ubicación es muy buena y la seguridad también. La higiene no es todo lo deseable que se espera
