    Il quartiere di lapa è vicino alla metropolitana e rispetto ai lussuosi copa e ipa fa vivere maggiormente l'atmosfera carioca. Rispetto ai prezzi alti degli hotel di Rio ha un buon rapporto qualità prezzo non vi aspettate una reggia ma almeno è pulito. Spirito di adattamento e occhi aperti se rincasate tardi la notte !!! Per gruppo di amici squattrinati è la soluzione ideale.

    Non funzionava la rete wi-fi. Un pò di rumore, ma se la gente è maleducata mica è colpa della struttura !!

    We did not like this hostel at all besides being in a dark and dodgy area of the city. When we arrived at 11pm at night after a long flight the staff did not speech one word of English even the next day the staff could not help us. We had breakfest included but was not shown and was not told about. We all didn't even shower in the shower it was very poor and the beds were like concrete.

    Nothing!! Location isn't good for tourists. It is a City center and it is 20 min by bus from all the beaches and tourist zones. During the evening time can be very dangerous. Staff doesn't speak English and hardly speak Spanish. Only a good-working wifi.

    basic facilities are available, air conditioning, hot water and a bed

    staff only understand/speak Portuguese suggesting that owner places door mat outside bathroom no English news television channel

    This hostel is terrible. The room is very dirty, the bathroom is so dirty that we don't even could get a shower; there wasn't toilet paper, the bath towel was so dirty that we had no courage to take it. Just before going to sleep, we had the unpleasure to see cockroach walking on the wall!! At the middle of night people walking by the corridor making so much noise, vomiting and so on. I really do not recommend this hostel!

    Location...very central

    Unfriendly staff who do not speak English or appear interested in customers. No breakfast provided although EVERYWHERE else in Brazil provides breakfast with accommodation.

    In Carnaval time it was the cheapest place to stay. Only place made me to chose this hostel (located in the Center near to Sambodromo). I do not recommend to stay here. It's maximum price - 60 reals, not 250 as it was charged in Carnaval time. For 250 reals (the same price) I got a big suit room in Snob Hotel with turkish bath and jacuzzi. Nobody knows English. Too noisy.

    The location only! This is a one hour hotel with free porn channel. I would not recommend anyone sensible to stay here. One positive thing is that they have free wifi internet near the reception.

    Dirty walls, staff not speaking English or caring about the guests, very loud hotel. We heard people vomiting every night. Staff talking loud in the corridors at nights - unable to sleep. Breakfast is a joke - small tables in the corridor with some fruits and biscuits and coffee (at least that's what I think it was). Nowhere to eat the breakfast. No other facilities whatsoever. Do not stay here!

    The cost

    Where do I start? We are a group of friends that have been traveling for a year so we are pretty used to staying in dodgy places. We weren't expecting much for the price we paid, but this place still fell short of our expectations. The one most single worst thing are the "receptionists" attitude, (if you can even call them a receptionist). Arriving at 10pm we waited for about 5 mins before even getting acknowledged (even though there me was no one else there), only to find out our room wasn't ready and were forced to wait a further 10 mins with no apology of any form. I don't know what the guys deal was at the front desk but he has to be the most least customer friendly person on this whole trip. The room standard is in line with what you pay although very cramped. There was barely any room to even fit our bags on the floor while they were closed, (didn't even bother trying to unpack). The bathroom tap came straight off when we turned it on, and the shower had no curtain so water flooded the bathroom. Despite all that, it wouldn't be such a bad place as it was by far the cheapest, but be ready to play hardball with the guy with extreme attitude!

    It's located in the Centro area of Rio. Only 10 to 15 mins walk to Sambadrome. So it's a great place for view Canival all night and get back to rest at anytime. Need the Big local Market for chaep shopping with local people not tourists. Shower room outside the room is nice. Employee I met in daytime were nice and kind.

    The good parts became the bad parts when conditions change. It's located in the Centro area of Rio. It´s full of local people without tourists so should be vary careful for the secuiry. Do not stay around outside without purpose after 6 or 7pm. The night employees I met when 1 day came was really not friendly and can´t speak neither English nor Spanish and charge a lot to get one room. But I think it´s the price for Canival season everywhere.

    The location is quiet good, just a 10 min. walk to central station, where trains as well as Metro is located.

    The word villa makes you laugh. Rooms are very basic and the light as well as the cellular signal almost doesnt make its way into the "Villa". Probably also depending on which room you get. At night, the street in front of the hotel is pretty dark. The internet (wifi) is average instable, as throughout whole Brasil.

    It is cheap and it isn't verry touristy - it fits to the feeling of the city

    for me everything was great... but for a person who expects a special comfort, english speaking stuff or something like this, i don't think it would fit

    Hellish nightmare with non english speaking personel, huge fondus growing on walls, situated in the biggest getto I've ever seen. Great place to pend your enemys to.
