Rio Hostal Ipanema is a terrace beach house only a few steps away from the notorious Posto 9, epicenter of Rio de Janeiro surf and beach culture.
The two floors guesthouse is located in a private road, providing peace and security.
The house decor is soft and minimalist, creating a comfortable living space that fits in with Ipanema indulgent groove. Tropical plants, hammocks and Bossanova tunes help to create the perfect atmosphere for a relaxing holiday which joined to the sensuality and the warmth of Brazilian people becomes an unforgettable experience.
The place is infested with bedbugs.
Stayed in the double room with a friend over Carnival. The location was excellent and the people friendly. It got a little dirty at night but it was Carnival. Our stay there was ultimately ruined, however, by the BEDBUGS. They were all over the double room, and had infested at least the 12 bed dorm as well. Everyone we talked to there had been bitten. Got conflicting stories from the staff about how long the problem had been going on and what was being done about it.
I would avoid this hostel at all costs.
