    Very good

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. The house was largely occupied by Brazilians with only a handful of travelers staying there. Most of them were planning on staying for over a week. I only stayed there a night. The focus on community and house morale was obvious and welcoming.

    The only thing I didn't like was the late hours that everyone kept. Since I was traveling on a schedule and didn't have much time to sleep, the time I had to sleep was important to me. The noise from the usual social hours didn't keep me up too much though.

    Fabulous

    The staff was very helpful (thanks, Binho). They make us feel comfortable, as if we were at home. The toilets and bathrooms are usually clean. A ambientação do lugar é bonita, artística, muito inspiradora e convidativa à leitura e convivência entre os hóspedes.

    There isn't a proper place for having breakfast, I mean, there aren't enough chairs for everybody depending on the time.

    Fabulous

    El trato del personal, el desayuno, la música, el agua caliente de la ducha, la ubicación, la limpieza, los cócteles.

    Los baños no son muy prácticos: poco espacioso y poca intimidad.

    Superb

    A Localização é excelente, bem como o alto astral do lugar, e o ambiente comum, como a sala e acozinha são excelentes. Rola um som maneiro, um playstation 3, a interação é muito boa!

    Superb

    Auberge avec des grandes chambres, avec un bon espace de convivialité, ce qui favorise la relation avec les autres. L'équipe est super sympathique et prête à aider à tout moment. Le petit déjeuner était délicieux et assez complet.

    Dommage que le voisinage ne soit pas à la hauteur de l'accueil de l'auberge et que la salle de bains (qui était fantastique) ne soit pas vraiment privée..

    Very good

    Le personnel est très accueillant. On s'y sent vite à l'aise. Très conviviale.

    Le terme hôtel n'est pas approprié puisqu'il s'agit d'une auberge.

    Superb

    Ambiance décontractée et lieu très accueillant. L'équipe est au petit soin pour les convives... Déco canon!!

    Un seul petit hic: la propreté qui peut laisser laisse à désirer parfois... (Classique pour une auberge de jeunesse...)

    Exceptional

    O ambiente do Books Hostel é muito agradavél, todo o seu espaço e decoração criam um ambiente caseiro e acolhedor, ao mesmo tempo jovial e inteligente. Assim tbém é o pessoal que nos recebeu, sempre dispostos a ajudar e dar dicas sobre a cidade. A localização é ótima permitindo ir de ônibus a todos os principais locais do Rio, e permite sair a pé à noite para curtir os bares e ruas da Lapa! Beijos Gabi e José

    Exceptional

    - Localização excelente, perto do aeroporto Santos Dumont, no coração da Lapa - funcionários prestativos - acomodações aconchegantes - banheiros limpos - café da manhã - ambiente alternativo, estilo "sinta- se em casa"

    - Dificuldade em achar pontos de eletricidade para recarregar celular, câmera. Tem um ou dois por quarto, e como cada quarto tem em média 6 a 12 pessoas... - Mais uma observação do que reclamação: de início foi difícil achar, pois não tem nada indicando na fachada, mas talvez isso seja algo que esteja ligado ao visual casual do hostel.

    Very good

    Excelente localização próximo ao coração da Lapa. Próximo a estação de mêtro onde voce se desloca para qualquer parte do Rio de Janeiro. Mas o que mais destacou foi o ambiente cultural do lugar e a convivencia entre os hospedes. Excellent location near the heart of Lapa. Near the metro station where you move to any part of Rio de Janeiro. But the most outstanding was the cultural environment of the place and coexistence among the guests.

    Pontos de energia no quarto (para recarregar celular ou usar o notebook). Points of energy in the room (for recharging phone or use the notebook).
