The hotel & hostel reception staff could communicate in Portuguese but straight forward check in. The 4 beds (2 bunks) is tiny aircon room with 4 cupboards, individual lights & sockets.
Tiny room with lower bed too cramped to sit. No soap in the toilet. Overused thin sheets & towel.
There is no staff Too hot in room Toilets are dirty
This is a cheap option in the central area of Rio.
This is not a hostel and definitely does not have a hostel vibe, you enter through the hotel. I felt really weird and a little unsafe here as during the night a drunk guy came in the dorm. He hadn't checked in before so it felt like random people use this "hostel" as an option to stay during a night out. I did not feel safe so if you are travelling solo, i would not recommend you stay here.
Bathrooms should be cleaned more often
