One of the worst hostels I’ve ever stayed in ”
This hostel is filthy! It looked like it had never been cleaned. The mattresses and pillows were plastic, mouldy, dirty, torn and horribly uncomfortable. The bathrooms are dirty and the staff including the owner are extremely rude. We gave our laundry to an employee the day we arrived to be done at a cost of 12BR per kg, 3 days later while trying to pack for an imminent flight we still hadn’t received our laundry back, we finally got it back at the last minute damp, when questioned about this the staff member was extremely rude saying that he was ‘not our employee and that he had done the laundry as a favour’. The last time I checked if you pay for something it is a service and most definitely not a favor. The worst part of all though is that the owner also runs a jujitsu gym which is situated in the room above the 8 bed dorm. Loud banging and music late into the night and as early as 7am. The only positive things I could say is that it is in a good location. It’s cheap, WiFi was ok.
Not a good neighborhood”
Though it is comparatively close to Copacabana beach, the hostel location is uphill and requires one to walk a lot. Washrooms are not clean at all. Dorm area is much better though. Staff is friendly and helping.
