        Hostel is of average quality. The rooms are good, the staff is friendly and the shared room+balcony at the top floor is great. However, it clearly lacks hygiene as compared to other hostels in the area. Together with the fact that you have to walk...More

        The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
        and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
        is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
        traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
        everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
        chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
        more live side-by-side. There are options for all
        price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
