I booked this hostel early 2018 knowing that I would be in Rio for Carnival and that prices are very high if you book close to the date. The hostel made no contact with me until about 3 weeks before carnival and said I have to pay a huge amount extra or cancel my booking. They said they had not increased their prices for the carnival period when I booked so far in advance and now I had to pay more. Absolutely rediculous, forcing me to find another hostel which was more than I originally booked for. I did my research and knew the dates of carnival which is why I booked early. Be very careful if you book here, they clearly don't care about you and just want more money.

***MUST READ*** In short the hostel forced me to pay 934r for an extremely small incident and the owner subtlety threatened me. I spent 6 nights in the hostel based in the favela that I had booked months ago for the carnival. I broke a door bell and threw up and the owner subtlety threatened me and charged me a huge amount of money that I had no choice but to pay as of the position of hostel and who the owner knew. Granted I know I'm the Brit abroad enjoying carnival but the amount they charged me was ridiculous, I'm not the sort of person who deliberately courses a problem, I've never had a problem with a hostel before. So one night I arrived back at the hostel around 4 in the morning without my key, the hostel doesn't have a 24 hour reception which in fairness is mentioned on the booking.com website. Some members of staff sleep in a room very close to the entrance who would 100% have heard me as my friends in dorms much further away heard me banging on the door. After pressing the door bell a number of time the casing fell off the wall. I ended up sleeping outside in a favela waking up to a dog chewing my foot. I was told that to repair the doorbell it would cost 200r. 2 days later the entire dorm was forced to leave their beds as it hadn't been cleaned in 5 days, even though 90% were leaving that day. After the room was cleaned I was informed of my payment. I that previous night had thrown up in a sink and by the side of my bed, which I am MORE than happy to pay a fine as I wouldn't wish that on anyone to clean up. The sink and toilet were pretty much full of vomit however, I'm pretty sure it's humanly impossible for one person to produce that much vomit. I also had a loaf of bread under my sheets which is forbidden and in fairness mentioned on a notice on the wall with a fine costing 40r which again I was happy to pay that fine. I also had 2 packets of unopened super noodle under my bed which I don't know if anybody knows but you don't eat that stuff dry, I was hardly gonna crack it open and start munching on some dry noodles and there was an apple that wasn't mine. (They had sent photos of all the issues they said was me, apple included) Directly outside the hostel the local dealer does his business, there were capsules found in the room and I believe they had charged me for the sole possession of everything that was found. After sending me photos of other small broken things (a chip off a bed, some stains, anything else they wanted to claim some money to fix) I was left with messages 'we are going to take your passport and things' as well as the cost 934r, he had also said in a phone call something along the lines of 'trust me you're going to want to pay' which I personally see as a threat as he knows the gangsters in the favela. I as I didn't want to get harmed or anything stolen I paid the money. I would like to say that the favela was pretty safe and a number of people were very kind but I wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of any of them for obvious reasons. I'm really not happy with my experience at the hostel and would highly recommend everyone to steer clear.

I stayed this hostel for 2night, this hostel is clean and has enough facilities (good ac , wifi) I satisfied till my check out. I checked out before 11am which is check out time. And I left my luggage in room with cleaning lady’s permission. And I was relaxing in the rooftop. Around 1pm , receptionist came to me,and say “why you here after check out. You have to pay 20r! Right now ” When I checked in I heard check out is 11am , but he didn’t said and written nowhere don’t use rooftop after check out. But He forced to me to pay. I didn’t want to pay for this unreasonable thing, but Eventually I paid . Because he has my card info. I was really upset this situation. My estimation is dropping off in the end

We arrived in the Night in middle of the Favela. At Beginning it was a Little bit to much for us. But the hostel mom gave us some good vibes. The room was very nice an clean: the breakfast on the rooftoop with the view over Copacabana and Ipanema was a Perfect start in the day . The stuff was very friendly and helpful. The hostel is close to Copacabana and Ipanema Beach and also the Subway is very close. We had a great stay with many experiance and we came in touch with the People and the Culture.

The place seems intimidating but it is actually really okay. People are really nice , they helped me to find the hostel and the staffs are more than helpfull. You have an icredible view , this hostel is right in the middle of copacabana and ipanema. Walking down the favela you re at only 15/20min from the beach. The room is clean and the bed comfortable. The tough thing is to walk up the heal but if you re lazy you can take a mototaxi for only 3R$ , which is nothing. It was an amazing experience in the favela , i didn t think that i ll be brave enough to live in the favela cuz i m a girl , but it s fine. And i even tried a Jiu Jitsu class nearby. Great experience and i ll come back for sure. I really recommend this place , it is not as bad as it sounds ! If someone goes there , say hello to the turtle !
