For the price, especially for the world cup, it was great. It is clean, staff is helpful and friendly. Of course, it's only the basics, nothing luxurious and you share a dorm. Warm shower, clean bed, two big shared bathrooms, and there was no rush. But it's a great way to make friends, especially during major events like the world cup or Olympics. You can bring your kids and family and get a dorm for yourself. Niteroi itself is nice with good beaches. It is quieter and safer (than Rio). It is a bit far from Rio. But you can walk from the hostel mostly along the beach for 20 mins, and then catch a nice ferry to reach the city center (for R$ 5 or so), and then the metro. You can catch the ferry back, but I think the last ferry returns at 9 pm or so. If you stay on in Rio, you would need to catch a cab back. Cabs can be a bit expensive (around R$ 80 from Rio to Niteroi, during the world cup). If you don't know Portuguese (and Spanish), communication can be tedious. Bring your quick language guide.

Service was outstanding, owners, manager, everyone was very helpful.
The hotel is beautiful, chic and stylish.... A place to relax after visiting Rio.
Breakfast was special not only because of the place and the view it has where it was served, but because it was prepared to the detail.
I hope to go back soon.

The position is perfect easy walk to beaches and restaurants. The hotel is clean and very well presented. Bedrooms are lovely. Staff excellent nothing was too difficult.
Breakfast was expensive every thing was itemized.
A set price menu would be better. My advise have breakfast down town or near the beach. Perfect place to unwind and relax at the end of the day. Great view of the favelas especially at night.

Leblon is a very safe area of Rio, and this hotel, being a few blocks off the beach, is a great place for a money conscious traveler. The rooms are a bit cozy, and the bathrooms tiny, but modern, clean and very functional. I will definitely stay here again on future trips to Rio.
