This immensely successful chain spreads out all over Brazil and the rest of South America. It draws in a lively, international backpacking crowd and hosts daily meetups such as free caipirinhas for guests to get to know each other. It’s a great place to meet new people. The location of Che Lagarto is ideal; near to the metro station, main road, beach, bars and with 24-hour restaurants nearby too. The staff are kind, cheerful and multilingual.
