TravelPod Member ReviewsBamboo Rio Hostel Rio de Janeiro
we rented an apartment through the hostel, but were still able to use the hostel for wifi, breakfast, etc.
The lock broke on the apartment door and we were locked out for 5 hours as they changed the locks. the staff at the hostel we all really friendly and helpful during this time- it was just a bit of a pain!
rest of the hostel looked really nice, super clean, AC, nice breakfast. would stay in the hotel again.
