This hostel is the best ever. I was there for Rio Carnival so that is probably why I loved it so much. I went travelling for 6 months and I stayed in a lot of places but this was my favourite by far. They don't allow the TV to be turned on, so everyone has to talk to each other, which is great, as everyone gets to know each other. It's cheap and the greatest place for comfort. The staff are really friendly, the location is good and there were loads of people stayng there. This hostel is quality and judging by their photos on their website it looks like it has been done up loads as well. If your looking for somewhere to stay in Rio and are feeling apprehensive then this is definitely the place to be.
