Atendeu expectativas
O hostel é muito bem localizado, ponto importante, em torno de 3/4 quadras do metrô Cinelândia. Simples, não espere o melhor colchão e nem o melhor travesseiro. Organizado, pessoas atenciosas, no check-in deram a chave do local, do quarto e do armário no quarto (inclusive armário tamanho bom para uma mala de mão), tomadas no quarto e tinham adaptador para emprestar, Café da manhã com o necessário, 1 fruta, suco de pó, café quentinho, pão francês, margarina e frios.

Fui muito bem recebida, os funcionários têm uma energia incrível. O hostel possui uma excelente localização, bem na escadaria Seleron, fica próximo a região central e tem fácil acesso ao metrô. Possui também opções de lanchonete próximo com preços super acessíveis, e ainda tem um mural com dicas de eventos e locais badalados para curtir a noite. Adorei.
