    Good location, right next to Centro and 2 good museums. Also Uber to the airport was relatively cheap.

    I didn't enjoy the kitchen/common room/sink area. I didn't feel like good place to chill out. Also it could be made more comfy. Breakfast was super basic. Not worth the money I think

    The price is the cheapest during carnival

    Pls note: the area is not safe at night. During carnival the street were always crowded but once the carnival over, dead quiet from 7pm even on the main street. Dont be fooled by the McDonald located opposite the hostel, it closed at 11pm. I thought 24hours so would be safer to go back at night. Basically uber home every night cos the train station is a 15mins walk on the creepy streets full of homeless. Checked out and wanted to leave my baggages in the locker at the reception. The owner did not allow it and claimed they are not responsible for missing items. The locker WAS EMPTY. I dont understands why and they couldn't give me an explanation. First time after traveling 11months in south America. Also the AC only works from 10pm-8am, too short hrs compared to other hostels o stayed in rio. No common areas for pple to get together except the reception which often crowded with the hostel volunteers. Big area at the kitchen but it was too warm to even sit around. Do yourself a favour, book somewhere else with the same price but safer area.
