    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    simple hotel

    2 nights there..never came back to the same hotel. never ever


    Do NOT stay here unless you have no other option

    Gabriel was extremely helpful during the day and the location was pretty good, only 10 min walk to the Copacabana sand. HOWEVER the rooms were absolutely tiny - like being in ¨the hole¨ in prison I would imagine - no natural light and no windows. The toilets were tiny, there was no sense of socialising, no decent common area, the night staff forgot to wake us for our departure after volunteering to help us get a taxi AND our room was not cleaned once in the 6 nights we were there.

    Pros: Gabriel (the guy who worked during the day was extremely friendly, helpful and had great English)

    Cons: Tiny windowless airless rooms, unreliable night staff, no decent common area, tiny toilets.

    Location: 10 minutes walk to the Copacaban beach sand


    Conflitos de informações

    Tive um problema de erro de comunicação/ informação pois negociei uma forma de pagamento com a Expedia e quando cheguei lá tinha sido feito de outra forma, minha negociação foi toda feita por telefone e todas as minhas dúvidas foram respondidas claramente, não entendi o porque do erro.Ao fazer o chekin no Hostel deu a maior dor de cabeça, pois tinha me planejado para pagar parcelado e tive que pagar a vista.

    Pros: Pessoas agradáveis, bem educadas

    Cons: banheiros tinha chuveiro que não funcionava direito.

    Location: ótima localização, próximo da praia de Copacabana, metrô próximo e varias opções de ônibus para outras regiões

    Stayed 3 nights in Sep 2017


    • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

    Stayed 2 nights in Jul 2017


    Boa localização 1 quadro do metro e 2 mercados

    Recepção super solicita, nunca fiquei em outros para poder avaliar melhor e comparar sobre instalações.

    Pros: recepção, café e localização

    Cons: acabamento interno
