Parents or a legal guardian travelling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is travelling with the child, he/she must present – in addition to the child's birth certificate and identity card with photo – a letter authorising the trip signed by the other parent with a notarised certification of signature. If the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorisation, a judicial authorisation is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before travelling for more information.

Overall it was a well planned out hostel. It was clean however, it was a big party atmosphere so in the mornings it was messy due to the other people in the room.

Overall Stay
Great atmosphere and nice staff. The shared dorms were a very basic. Bathrooms in dorms were cleaned daily. The downside of the rooms was humidity. They fans in the room to help keep an air flow. Windows kept open didn't help since it was humid outside. Sheets were always damp. We stayed Mon-Sat and never had our sheets replaced and they smelled of mildew. The AC was only turned on certain hours of the day which was a bummer if you wanted to sleep past 8am. Lockers were nice and spacious for luggage. They offer free luggage storage after check out. The main hang out area needs more love and comfort. All chairs are wooden fold out, so it makes it hard to get out of the room and lounge like most hostels have. Wifi worked really well. Give 1 free drink each evening at the bar, nice touch! Breakfast option was delicious - good fruits, breads, drinks. Overall it is a hostel so it will not be perfect. I have much experience in various hostels in Rio and it isn't the worst, but not the best.

Good location
The hostel is new, and parts are still under construction, but it is very conveniently located near the beach and metro
