|Boasting an outdoor pool and views of Christ the Redeemer, Casa Vermelha is located in Rio de Janeiro. Free WiFi access is available at this colourful B&B.|
The living room is lovely, very modern and with a balcony's view on Lapa's neighbourhood. The breakfast was nice, it included fruits and toasts. The hostel is in the heart of Lapa, with many buses running by and the metro at a 10 minutes walk. We were offered free caipirinhas. Staff was quite helpful.
The bedroom was very small, with no windows,and the airconditioning was not working, so they replaced it with a precarious ventilator. The matress was very thin and put on a pallet. The wi-fi was not working so we went to the other hostel they own (in the next block) to use it. It can be quite noisy on week-ends (people party in the street).
Two staff spoke good English and all staff were helpful. Breakfast was ok and shared bathroom was kept clean.
Although taxi driver found the address ok there were no signs indicating where the hostel was apart from the street number. Had to negotiate very narrow spiral stairs to room that was small. Mattress was on pallets and only the floor to put your gear. Located on a busy street which made the place very noisy. Lapa is a scruffy area with a 20 minutes walk to metro/Centro. Overpriced like most Brazilian hostels.
The staff were so friendly and helpful. It was right in the middle of Lapa so easy to get to bars and restaurants and the main beaches were just a bus ride away. The cutest cat in the world! Lovely decor throughout. The rooms are situated so that even though you are on a main road you cant hear any traffic. Air conditioning and a fan, which we've realised we took for granted since travelling to more places.
I wasn't really bothered by anything but in the interest of other travellers that might: The bathrooms/toilets were right next to the communal area with a little hole in the wall at the top so privacy would be tricky at busy times. Breakfast is basic but suited us fine. There's only a microwave in the communal area but there is lots of places to eat nearby so you don't really want to stay in anyway. I think all together you definitely get what you pay for and the friendly staff make up for any tiny inconveniences. Would definitely recommend!
Localisation in Lapa easy to find and breakfast (in other building)
We get in hostel at 8 pm and we wait for room about 1,5 hour - someone didnt leave room and we had to wait, but tomorrow we had to leave before 12 am - please change time of check in and check out. It was unacceptable. Breakfast in different building.
New hostel, very clean, great location, nice staff.
Only 2 bathrooms. Breakfast is in another hostel 200m away :)
People were very friendly and accommodating. Stereotypical hostel vibe (in a good way). Great value and location.
Storage bins for personal items were JUST too tiny for a carry on luggage. They made them square in dimension instead of rectangular.
no much besides the friendly staff
The cleaner was nice
Cold showers Dirty bathrooms Poor wifi
