Although I only stayed 3 days, I'd consider this hostel as my first choice again ! It's a VERY secure hostel, and the staff is very friendly and knowleagable. It was a pleasant surprise to be welcomed by such wonderful hostesses. Plus, there's a metro (Botafogo station) and great, inexpensive churrascaria a block away. You won't be disappointed !
Security at this hostel is definitely tight; mainly because it doesn't look like a hostel from outside. Tucked away in Botafogo on Rua Sao Clemente, it blends in with the neighborhood. You have to be buzzed in and then theres a gate that has to be opened by staff. If you stay here I recommend getting a private room. There is a good view of Christ the Redeemer from the hostel and the metro station is just around the corner. There is also the Botafogo mall about 2 blocks down; a nice 8 story mall with all your shopping needs. The staff speaks fairly good english and they have a nice bar and cafe which is fairly new.
What I disliked is Rio is very humid and the most you have available is ceiling fans which does nothing to cool you off.
