I had never stayed at a hostel before and I have to admit that I was impressed by this place. We stayed at the 6-bed dorm. Cleanliness was outstanding. Housekeeping actually cleaned the bathroom several times throughout the day. The staff was really helpful, always giving insider tips to the city. And location is great! Ipanema beach was 1 min...

The staff at che lagarto Ipanema are amazing! A lot of them are quite young but still try their best to get things done. They all speak at least Portuguese and some English and some staff speak 3-4 languages. They are so fun to go out and party with too! I made some good friends with a few staff members...

I just left the Che Lagarto this morning, and have no intention of staying there ever again. As far as the value goes, you pay for the security and the location, both of which are excellent. It is two blocks away from the beach, and is a good walking distance from many good restaurants in the area. However, everything else...

The dorms are really cramped and really humid as a result of badly ventilated bathrooms. The biggest annoyance were that the staff were unhelpful especially to organise further travel plans or tips for getting around Rio!

This is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. The staff were super friendly and so helpful and they would go out of their way to help you with things. The rooms were really clean and the cleaning staff were really good. Really good security and the dorms have lockers so you can put your valulables in there...

I booked this hostel for an outrageous price for the New Years week (was 90$ in a room of "more than 6 people"). But this is my fault. Then, my plans changed, and I asked to cancel my reservation.
