    This is the highest quality hostel in Rio de Janeiro. The facilities are brand new. The beds are little cabins with drapes and are thus semi-private. It is kept very clean and the complimentary breakfast is fresh and delicious. Excellent selection drinks at the bar. Beautiful views from the roof. Highly recommended for those who need space from the party hostel environment.

    Great place to stay in Rio de Janeiro

    Very nice and spacious hostel a bit uphill from beach and main street. Great views for watching fireworks on New Year’s eve. At the edge of pacified favela, so not a very scary place, but you need to watch out for your belongings (like everywhere in Rio). Hostel is in superb condition, staff is very friendly and breakfast options are more than good (much wider choices than standard).

    My wife and I both agree, we made a great choice to stay at Aquarela do Leme. Thibault is the best host and is very accommodating to the needs of all guests. Don’t hesitate to book your room because this place is in high demand. It is literallty just five minutes from the beach, we could see it from our room, and the short walk up the hill is actually one of the things that we will treasure the most! Enjoy a comfortable and genuine experience at the Aquarela do Leme.

    110% recommended!

    My first ever hostel stay was the best travel accomodation I had. My friends would also tell me that I am an expensive traveler as I travel a lot but always stay in luxurious hotels. This time I wanted to make a difference so I tried to stay at Aquarela. The roof deck view was amazing, 1 side facing the beautiful Copacabana beach and the otherside facing the Babilonia favela. Many would probably think that it is dangerous because it is located at the entrance of Favela but definitely no. The neighboorhood were very friendly, there were police presence, free breakfast 110% friendlt staff (the owner even asked me if I want to stay in the room as long as I want as my flight leaves at 11:45PM. Family friendly hostel, 2 cute and friendly kids were there during my stay. Animal friendly hostel (i love dogs heavenly). The guests were very nice and disciplined (we wash our own plates/utensils after use which I find really cool). The cleanliness was superb. The room was excellent with each bed has its own privacy curtain (feels like rooms in a cruise ship). Hostel lobby staffed 24 hours. There is a bar if you want to grab some drinks. Oh yes, definitely recommendable place! Very safe!
