Oi!

That is portuguese for hello, not me being rude, as some uncultured people would think. See we're native brazillian now.

    This hostel was in a perfect location in Copacabana. The people were cool and it was only 5 minute walk to the beach. This place would be five stars in my book if the owners and staff put in a little more effort. Showers were dirty and rooms were over priced for the condition. Payed 25R/night for an 18 person dorm room. A little pricey in my book for such a lack of privacy.

    Could do with a serious overhaul

    I arrived after the reception had closed and was greeted by a security guard who was not given any info about guests arriving for the night or which bed they were supposed to stay in, so even though I had booked a 10 bed, I was put in a 15 bed for the first night. In the morning I went to reception only to be told that they don't even have 10 bed dorms. It took a lot of arm twisting to get them to put me in a 6 bed dorm (as I wasn't gonna pay the extra to stay in a 15 bed).

    The whole place is filthy, especially the bathrooms/showers. The bar is ok but not a very comfortable. The free breakfast is heavily regulated, you may have one piece of ham, one piece of cheese and one piece of fruit. Coffee regularly runs out and is not topped up. I can't recommend this place.
