great stay in Rio at the best place

friendly helpful staff, safe, close to beach and city
The friendly welcome at the hostel is great! No matter when you arrive, you can lock the luggage in a safe room until you can check in the room. Although the rooms were quite small - but that's normal in Rio for that price - the stay there was very very nice! The whole hostel was very clean (also very very clean toilet), and everybody (included cleaning staff) tried everything to make the stay as wonderful as possible! I felt like being in a big family! The tours they are offering in the hostel are very nice and you won't get them cheaper anywhere else. The hostel is a great place to meet people from all over the world. That part of Ipanema was the best choice! Great location!

Ipanema rocks!

Abendprogramm, Frühstück und Staff
Das Hostel macht richtig Bock. Jede menge coole Leute, geile Barabende und ausreichend Frühstück nach langen Partynächten. Einziger Minuspunkt: Es gibt deutliche Unterschiede was die Zimmerqualität betrifft. Es kann sein dass man in Stockwerk 5 od. 6 untergebracht wird (Aufzug geht nur bis 4!) oder ins Nachbargebäude muss - das sollte man wenn möglich ändern ;)

ottima posizione, pochi bagni

vicinanza alla spiaggia di ipanema, zona tranquilla
ottimo ostello, ottima posizione, possiblità di utilizzo della cucina, letti buoni, pochi bagni nei dormitori, personale che pluri-lingue e disponibile, buone attività organizzate dall'ostello. costi un po' elevati.

Redelijk, maar toch enigszins teleurstellend

Ligging centraal en nabij strand en goede verbinding. Prima internetverbindingsmogelijkheden. Vriendelijk personeel.
Slecht onderhouden. Op mijn verzoek mijn safebox die bijna uit elkaar viel te repareren, werd niets ondernomen. Er was niet continu warm stromend water. Mijn stapelbed kraakte aan alle kanten. Geen keukenvoorzieningen voor algemeen gebruik. De sfeer was wel geweldig.
