    Staff were brilliant. So helpful. Booked us onto the favela tour on the first morning. Recommended great places to eat. Amazing view from the bar. Delicious caiprinhas. In a really great part of town. They also organised nights out, which the other guests raved about. Was our first time to Rio and Forest Hostel made sure our introduction to the city was perfect. And their cat is hilariously moody - don't try to pat him!

    The location was great. It was close enough to everything in the city, but far enough away from the centre that we didn't have the noise and the smell. I stayed during carnival so everything at the bottom of the hill smelled really bad. We were UP the hill so the air was fresh and sweet. The staff were friendly, engaging and always made sure all the guests knew about activities, parties, parades, etc. The food cooked by Seline was amazing.

    The first night, I stayed in the main house and I loved it. It's a great old mansion with interesti g woodwork and ceilings. After that, I stayed in the basement room. If I wanted to get to the main house, I had to go downstairs, across a courtyard and up 2 flights of stairs. It rained a lot, so I couldn't get to or from my room without getting wet. The room had no air movement and was constantly damp. The pillows, the sheets.... Everything just always felt wet. The ensuite bathroom has a massive gap under the door, so there is no sound insulation at all when people ate on the loo. We were often forgotten about in the room. We had to keep asking for toilet paper because it wasn't provided daily (getting rained on when going to the main house) We had to keep asking for the ac to be turned on (getting rained on when going to the main house). I'm sure I would have had a much better experience had I been in one of the rooms in the main house, but I couldnt move rooms due to the hostel being full every night

    The staff are amazing and really helpful. The hostel has a roof top terrace where breakfast is served, amazing views!

    My mattress in particular wasn’t the comfiest, a little bit worn.
