This is a Trusted Review. Why?
excellent - a very good place - my first hostel, so I can't compare with others. The only caution is that the rooms are very noisy when things wake up on the road outside at about 6.30am. Go and stay there and don't worry about it. Staff were warm, helpful, and very friendly.

Just 5 minutes walk from the vibrant center of Rio de Janeiro and night more electric city, is Lapa. Up the hills of Santa Teresa and the largest urban forest in the world, you are the most convenient place to get to Christ the Redeemer.This Hostel is the perfect choice in a city with thousands of people and a great deal of charm and swing, samba and soccer, and quiet, and Summer Carnival.
