I stayed at this hostel for 5 nights in April 17 with my boyfriend. The location is great if you would like to be close to Ipanema beach. The room was an okay size for 2 people (if you're venturing out each day!) & cleaned each day. The included breakfast was acceptable for the price we paid. English speaking staff...

Good location and friendly staff but let down with the general cleanliness of the room. Had a double room with private bathroom, smelt a bit damp, window didn't shut and I saw a cockroach on the last day. Price is pretty low and the staff were friendly but not sure I'd stay again. Would pay a little more and stay...

I stayed in Bonita Pousada for two nights. The Pousada is located in a great neighborhood (amazing restaurants, good shopping!) but the rooms are very basic (bathrooms are shared).

The Bonita Pousada & hostel is a lovely place, with a small pool. The rooms are basic, but you get what you pay for. They serve a nice breakfast, and the people here are very welcoming and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The hostel has good vibes and a nice little pool and chilling area but the room is below average with the door handle breaking off all the time and other broken bits. No air con so expect to be in a sweat box! Location is good tho. Overall everything is ok except the room is in poor condition

Such a cool hostel! Really beautiful and rooms were homely and cosy. They provide everything! After the buffet breakfast you can take one of their tour/guide/excursions anything you could think of they will organize. Or explore around ipanema and Copacabana by foot. Perfect location. Staff are all very helpful and so lovely!
