Positive Reviews

Helpful, friendly staff

Most staff at the hotel speak English and provide outstanding service to guests. Travellers are very impressed by the quality of the service, saying employees go out of their way to give recommendations and help in any way they can.

Good location

The hostel has an excellent location, as it sits in Rio de Janeiro's Botafogo district, close to a beach, shopping venues, and restaurants. Visitors report the neighbourhood is exceptional for exploring the city because of its centrality.

Nice common spaces

Common areas like the kitchen and courtyard are available for guests, which is appreciated. Travellers like being able to cook their own meals and say the shared spaces provide the opportunity to meet other people.

Negative Reviews

Poor Wi-Fi

While Wi-Fi is available at the hostel, guests say it doesn't reach every room. Therefore, travellers staying in rooms without Wi-Fi availability can only access it in the common areas.

No ventilation

Rooms at the hostel tend to get stuffy because of the poor ventilation, according to visitors.

Noise from the courtyard

Events, such as concerts, are commonly held in the courtyard, and this makes it difficult to go to bed early. Travellers say the noise is audible in the rooms and sleeping is impossible during a concert.
