For the price this is definitely the hostel to choose on a budget, though make sure you always book through hostel-world as the rates are cheaper than booking at reception- even if you're extending, go back online to book up!!! The hostel has everything you need: great location to metro and supermarkets, some good eats around too! It's walking distance...

One of the worst hostels I have stayed in. They have terrible triple bunk beds, with 15 people to a tiny room. No space for luggage, and no lockers or power outlets. The breakfast was terrible, just bread, baloney, jam and some sort of cake. The only good thing was the staff was nice and helpful. For $5 reaped more...

Dear Becky, Your review is completely misleading. Our bunkbeds are brand new and breakfast is very good with a lot of options. It is funny that you have reviewed only our hostel and seem to have so much experience with other hostels services in Rio. Next time do not hesitate to spend more money, then. Regards, Beach Backpackers Hostel

Originally was going to stay for 1 week but have ended up staying for 2 weeks! Love this hostel. The staff are the best and the atmosphere is one of the friendliest I've encountered in over a year of travelling. I'm on my second visit and will come back for a third. Thanks for a great stay guys!

This Hostel is very well located : in Botafogo, which is quite safe, and not far from everything. Concerning the staff, they are really nice and helpful.

We were sold "a private room with a Queen sized bed" only to find our room was a cupboard with bunk beds. The picture of the bedroom on the website DOES NOT EXIST!

This hostel is as good as it gets. The prime asset is the location as it is like 10 minutes tops from the nearest metro station Botafogo, bearing the name of the neighbourhood it is serving.
