Location is great - if you're going to Rio, you definitely want to spend a few nights in Lapa to enjoy the live music and big clubs, as well as the historic attractions in close proximity. Staff was friendly. Wifi throughout the whole building (very rare in Rio, even in expensive accommodations).
With a stay at 186 Lapa Central Hostel, you'll be centrally located in Rio de Janeiro, within a 10-minute drive of Sambodrome and Consulate General of the United States Rio de Janeiro. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, multilingual staff, and luggage storage.
