10/10 reccomend! This place is the perfect dysfunctional family. Absolutely unreal. Rio has beaches, mountains, nightlife and everything you could want. This hostel has an atmosphere like no other. Best place to make friends around the world. The owner is a bit of a legend on his good days I guess. Seriously best place to do work.

About the host

It is the best place in the world. At least we love it a lot. We feel really happy to have the chance to show Rio in the way we believe it is. And to open our door to people from all around the world!
