In general terms, Che Lagarto Ipanema is a good deal. It's located two blocks from the beach. Most of the staff is quite gentle and helpful. Rooms are clean. The environment in general is quite good and entertaining
There was a couple of time where the toilet wasn't working, so as the card you use to open the room.
To go with friends or with family, good location and great breakfast good cleaning.
Just one block from the beach, to enjoy a few days of relaxation and gain new demigos !!!
Very nice the hostel has wi fi service, full breakfast, good service, to recommend !!!
I was treated very well, good breakfast, cleanliness, service and location.
Thanks for the attention and service they gave me.
Obrigado pela atenção e serviço que me deram.
Good location and the price
10 bed dorm is a nightmare
good attention and service, to enjoy the place and make new friends.
The staff were really friendly and helpful at all times. Very organise facilities. Internet available in all rooms with good speed.
The only thing I did not like was that the kitchen closes at 21:00
good service and location, everything always clean.
people in gral
the breakfast as poor maybe more fruits
We played the room upstairs with a unique panoramic view, good care and service.
The location is as good as it gets! One stone throw away from the Ipanema beach. All the (english speaking) Staff are very friendly and accommodating, from the time i booked my rooms up until checking out, they were eager and willing to help in whatever inquiry i have. Good job Che Lagarto!
Shared bathrooms, oh well its a given. At least its cleaned everyday.
All the people The rooms Location Security Value for money The staff
Could be a little cleaner and showers could be a little hotter
Good attitude, attention, and give you tips on how to know rio !!!!!
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
The Staff. The Guests. The Location. The atmosphere. The Prices.
International Party People make it hard to sleep well. Too many people in a room makes for not so clean bathrooms, but they are good enough.
Gente muito bon, Praya muito elegado, Schweinsteiger muito bon, James Rodriguez mutio muito bon!
Wifi could be stronger. I also would like more fruits at the breakfast (the watermelon ran out too quickly)
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!
