Very clean everywhere, cleaners there all day. Really helpful and friendly staff with fantastic english, Roderigo sorted out an earlier than scheduled transfer to Ilha Grande for us when our morning plans fell through and also introduced us to other Irish staying in the hostel , really cool guy. Washington always friendly and helpful every day, made us feel really welcome at check in. Key card locks on all rooms. Large under bed storage lockers that can easily fit large rucksack. Happy hour 7-7.30 in bar. Good wifi. Go hiking with Alice! Amazing location to Ipanema beach. Originally had 4 nights booked and stayed for an extra 2.
Breakfast isn't included and is way over priced to have there. 20BRL for a banana, 2 slices of sweet bread and a small type omlete - juice, coffee and water there also. We were in an 8 bed mixed dorm and water on the floor of the bathroom the whole 6 night stay, leaking from toilet but cleaners just kept wrapping a soaked towel around it every day which didn't help. You can imagine with 8 people sharing the bathroom how the floor was between cleaners visits. Soap and hand towel ran out on second day and not replaced. Pay 10BRL to rent a towel. Aircon 9-9 but no control over it, some nights too cold with only light sheet on bed. Some days cleaners only made bottom bunks, some days none atal, not really sure why? Asked multiple guys at reception about doing a hike with a group from the hostel as had read on reviews and everytime was told they'd check if one was going and when asked again wasnt really given an answer but they said they'd tell us how to get there ourselves, in the end we got the contact info off a guy in our room that had done one with the volunteer already and we went with her. Her name is Alice and works as a volunteer through the hostel in Ipanema and Copacabana, we did the two brothers mountain hike with a group with her and shes fantastic. Definitely ask for her details there.
The location is my favourite in Rio. Also, having the bathroom inside the room was really nice!
They didn´t have blankets to provide us the first night. The employee that was working the night shift was super helpfull and gave us some extra sheets, but stil, we were a bit cold for the night. They provided us blankets the very next day though. Asside from that, it was a very pleasent stay.
The only positive things are the location and that the staff are friendly. Nice outside area/bar (although without a social atmosphere)
4 bed dorm is too small. It's not a really clean place. Matresses are dirty and provided sheets look a bit shabby. Beds are rosty. There is not always hot water. They charged me for a drink I never took. There are better hostels in Rio, also taking into account the price was relatively high (probably due to the copa america).
great location, really nice staff, the parties were hectic, and a really cool bartender with nice drink prices.
they have triple bunk beds in one room, which doesn't seems comfortable....
