Good location to several sites. Helpful english-speaking staff
Very noisy room, hostel in high traffic area Food (breakfast, lunch,...) was only OK
The location of the hostel was great very close to the metro which is pretty straight forward and also very close to Corcovado pick up...not to be confused with the statue it's self it is a 10 minute walk to a van that you pay for to take you to the attraction. Most of the staff spoke English with the exception of a few who only spoke Portuguese. The rooftop area was fantastic a great place to chill out and have a beer after a hot rio day, also beers could be purchased downstairs which was nice.
My biggest complaint was a large reason I booked at the Refugio was because it was advertised as a climbing hostel of sorts. While they do have a bouldering wall there is only 1 small pad and the room was also used for storage. Among that I was the only climber there and the staff could only offer a Google search. That being said it was a great hostel especially for the money. I would not detour anyone from staying there just don't go there with the hopes of finding a climbing community, then again it is very hot in January perhaps it was just a bad time.
Located near the Corcovado, Sugerloaf and in between the beaches and the historical centre. Has a climbing wall and large terrace/bar areas
The hostel is on a very busy street so you hear a lot of traffic noise. The curtains are right next to the bunk beds and are quite moldy...
Very friendly staff Plenty of towels Good breakfast Fresh linen on the beds Good location
Clean beds and bathroom, nice staff, good and safe location
Breakfast is very basic
Very helpful personnel Good location Simple but nice breakfast
Showers don't provide continuous hot water
The climbing guidebooks which make it easy to organize a climbing trip, the awesome staff always ready to help, breakfast, cleanliness, climbng wall, really safe neighborhood far from nothing
Our room did not have a window, only shutters. Hence it was noisy at night.
Location, price, clean and I felt safe.
No wifi upstairs.
Very helpful reception staffs providing brand-new and detailed information for city tour. They ask where we plan to go everyday and advise best way to enjoy.
Friendly staff Excellent breakfast Convenient location
It would be great to have wifi in the rooms as well, but this is not a criticism as wifi was exactly as advertised: strong and fast in communal areas, and a bit patchy elsewhere.
The staff were really amazing: Marcela, Niño & Sandro... Close to all public transportation, restaurants & supermarkets.
No WiFi connection in the rooms.
Loved the hostel and loved the staff super friendly. Clean and confortable hostel with big dor rooms. The location is in the center 5min walking distance from Lappa and Santa Theresa and 5 tube station from ipanema and copacabana. No need to say that the neighbourhood is safe Definitely I recommand this place to stay in rio
extremely genuine, friendly, helpful staff. felt very welcome and comfortable.
One of the best hostels in South America due to its amazing staff (especially owner Rick will make sure your stay will be as good as possible), its great beds with thick matrasses, good lockers and personal lamps and electricity sockets, excellent huge fresh breakfast, big showers, clean facilities 24h, airport transfer and relaxed vibe!
The staff were very friendly, spoke English very well and offered help and information to us. We stayed in the private room which was clean and tidy. The breakfast was good. The hostel was in a good location, safe at all times, and 5 minutes walk to the metro. Only a short bus ride from Christo too!
We put things in the fridge with our name on labels but people took it anyway!
The staff were very kind and informative, especially the manager, she provided us with a lot of tips for sightseeing and local transport. The location of the hostel is very good if you want to see the major attractions.
One of the staff members was not up-to-date with the information about Corcovado and told us and another guest that everything is booked, but in fact there were free places. The information we got from the manager was correct.
The stuff was nice!!
