Location location location. This place its incredible we had a great time. Everybody its friendly and helpful. Its fairly close to everything beach, bus, subway , shopping mall, botanic gardens, bike stations.. We just love it. As I said we had a great time and will be back for sure.
I didn't want to come back home. Lol
Great mattress on my bed. Staff were friendly, general cleanliness was good. LOVED the large lockers
Electric sockets located in only one area of the room. Nice to have hooks where one can hang towel to dry.
I definetly liked the location cause it was right in Impanema literally 1 block from the beach and there were plenty of bars to go to in the area,
The beds were awful. My back has been killing me for 2 days now. Also I didn`t like that the common area was closed after a certain time so it was either go out for the nite or go to your room.
Very close to everything and the staff was great! The manager is awesome and you definitely feel at home here. I stayed a week here for the World Cup, left to stay with a friend but then ended up coming back to Che since it's so great.
João, Natalia, Andrea, Ricardo, Johnathon and all the others I can't remember.. Thank you for making me feel at home. Always greeting me with a smile. They know everywhere to go and will help you with anything!
Internet can be spotty.
I spent a great time there...thank you so much!!! I hope to come back soon!
-location is great -staff is very helpfull -the bar is a good place to meet people
-the room was too small for 10 people -over my bunk bed was a beam so that even if i was always carefull i hit my head on it
Bathrooms should be cleaned more often than once a day if there are 10 people using 1 bathroom.
-Location is wonderful, only two blocks from Ipanema beach and accessible to everywhere by bus. -Supportive and fun staffs. -Great breakfast with fresh fruits, coffee, breads+pastreis, fresh juice etc. -Room was always clean. -Nice environment to meet new people.
-For me, it was a little hectic that some go/ come in the middle of the night since there is a bar on the ground floor. But I understand this comes nice to other people too.
Good location Kind and energetic Staffs Natalia is great staff
Locker is too small and hard to use
Friendly and lovely Receptionists Spoke really good english Good location, near to Ipanema beach within the shopping miles... love that freaky hostel...
breakfast was not so good... missed some ham and cheese but thats all...
staff is funny and super friendly. close to Ipanema beach.
overpriced - choose the che lagarto in copacabana if you decide to stay in a "chain"-hostel . The breakfast is weak. no towels to rent. its not a hostel where you can relax.
Staff is very friendly and helpfull Situation is great
Wifi is too slow
hospitality clean private room
inconsistency in rates, when I checked out they told me there was a diff to pay , when I paid all since the chekc inn. the city tours / i paid 70 usd pperson , when the tour cond arrived told me that 10 usd were missing and I had to paid them.
We were moved room Overbooked all the time Staff are very unorganized We had a booking and they tried to move us to another hostel Very unprofessional
Nice persons among the reception stuff! Crowded place. Fine location. Good breakfast. "Be a local" tours.
easy communications as m y Portuguese is bad there was a lot of english speaking employees
I moved specifically due to the horrible wi-fi
So close to the beach and nice inviting atmosphere. Various activities each day if you want to partake.
Remember to bring your own towel, padlock and cash to pay for your stay.
Staff were passionate about what they do, Manager even tried to get an adapter when their hair dryer doesn't plug in, Nice bar like a real bar, Meet a lot of people, Short walk to beach, supermarket
during 2 days stay card for opening the door doesn't work 5 times, also happened to other people in the room, bed sheet clearly has dirty/dusty marks on it, apart from the stain, took them change 3 times to find a cleaner one, ensuite bathroom no hot shower first day, broken no water the 2nd day, woke up with traffic noise sounds like sleeping in the street... problem hostels don't normally have, if get fix gotta be an awesome hostel with such wonderful staff and location
Very friendly staff and great crowd.
Rooms are not heated, can be chilly in the winter
Party atmosphere, location, staff
Staff were very helpful. Free internet use on hostel computer. Free filtered water and use of fridge and kitchen. Nice breakfast.
My locker was damaged.
