Best hostel in the centre of Lapa. Friendly, cheap and vibrant Sep 09, 2015
Stayed here for our first few nights in Rio. Staff were extremely friendly as were the people staying there, and generally a really nice vibe to it. We shared a dorm with 4 other people very basic but all that we needed as we were only there for sleeping. The hostel itself is in Lapa (party central). Theres artwork all over the walls, along with a shared living room and outside area with a bar which is great for meeting people and pre drinks (all of which are cheap, especially in happy hour) . Breakfast is what you would expect fruit, cereals, bread, ham & cheese etc with tea, coffee juice. They also have a filtered water tap where you can refill your bottles which was amazing! Overall one of the best places we stayed would definitely recommend just make sure if you want to stay there for the weekend you book quickly as they tend to get really busy.

Would say to any females staying around this area to be careful there are a lot of men who whistle, look you up and down and try to talk to you constantly. Theres also a lot of groups of lads that hang around down streets so be careful where you head. We personally didnt have any problems but some girls had things stolen from them.

Great Hostel to meet friendly people Jan 04, 2012
Great place to stay for a first timer to Rio as it is in or close to downtown Rio so you actually see proper Rio rather than the Hostels close to the beaches which are a bit touristy. Also close to traditional Brazilian restaurants called the kilo Bars. Good value for money's a must reminds me of the tasty food at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas which has a similar kind of serving.

Books hostel is also close to the domestic airport for travelling to other parts of Brazil. And bus 433 to get to the Copacabana beach.

Mind you some of the rooms close facing the main street can get a lot of traffic noise...
Me with some friends i met at book…

Great hostel in picturesque Santa Teresa Jul 15, 2011
The best hostel in Rio we stayed in. Very helpful and friendly owner. Parties, bands and and bar. What else do you need?

Very nice area in Rio, Santa Terasa tram runs nearby. Felt safe even walking around at night. Highly recommended.
