Very nice hostel, great staff. They really took the time to show us all the things to do and on top some hidden pearls as well!

Rio & Surf is far from the city, public transportation affordable, but somewhat unreliable, taxis expensive. The entrance to the hostel was a let down compared to the description I had read. It felt small, cramped, shabby, and generally not relaxing. Accommodations were uncomfortable: Very small room,six beds, no storage units, hooks or shelf space of any kind and very limited walking space. Granted the balcony helped. Two restrooms and two showers total. "No Smoking" signs are placed around the premise but many guests, and some staff members, smoked. We missed our connecting flight, I emailed to cancel the taxi scheduled to pick us up but I was still charged half the fair. A refund or credit of any kind was refused for the cancellation of our last night there. Drinking water not provided and initially the staff was not very helpful as to where to buy prepared food. Although the surfing class was fun, our stay at Rio & Surf not a very pleasant experience.
