Positive Reviews

Thriving atmosphere

Guests rave about the lively atmosphere of the hostel. They love interacting and hanging out with other guests in the common areas of the premises. Dynamic parties are also hosted by the management, giving them more chance to socialise with other travellers.

Strategic location in Copacabana area

Travellers highlight the excellent locality of the property. They like its close proximity to diverse food establishments and the world-renowned Copacabana Beach, which is only less than eight minutes by foot. They also specify that the nearest metro station, Cardial Arcoverde Station, is just one block away.

Well-maintained rooms

The dorms and private rooms are described as clean and well-maintained. Thanks to the daily cleaning of the housekeeping staff, the quarters are kept in good condition and the sleeping facilities are fresh.

Negative Reviews

Patchy Wi-Fi access

The complimentary Wi-Fi connection within the hostel is perceived to be unreliable. Travellers complain about the hit-and-miss connectivity in the rooms and even in the common areas of the premises.

Tiny space

Reviewers cannot help but criticise the room size. They say the in-room space – whether in the dorms or in the private ones – is limited and restricted. Guests with large backpacks and luggage have a hard time placing their stuff.

Disappointing breakfast spread

Visitors are unhappy with the breakfast provision. They report that the food options are limited and poor in terms of taste and quality. They further explain that the meals are too simple, offering no special signature in the dishes.
