I stayed in a lot of HI hostels so far and this is one of the best. People working here are very friendly and helpful, and put a lot of effort into their work, they make you feel at home. The location is good, Botafogo metro station is just 5 minutes away, from where you can reach any sightseeing point and the beaches. I have stayed a couple of times in this hostel during my South-American journey, I would definitely return here next time and I highly recommend it.

The location of the hostel is good, a safe neighbourhood, just 5 minutes walk from Botafogo metro station which is ideal to reach any famous spot of the town. I returned a couple of times to this hostel during my South-American journey, I highly recommend it and I would definitely return another time.
