Stayed here with my daughter while we were in Rio doing volunteer work in the favelas. The location is in a guarded community just opposite the subway. The rooms and common area are very clean and our private room for two was cleaned daily with new sheets. The breakfast was very good and the front desk was very friendly and...

The hostel was OK and the staff was very nice and helpful and spoke both English and Spanish except Portuguese. The breakfast was really good and had some things to choose from (including a really nice cake). It was very close to the beach (Copacabana) and to the metro station, and that was great. On the downside, the place wasn't...

Thanks for staying with us and for writing a review. We are glad to hear you liked our staff, breakfast and location.

This hostel strictly accommodates after check in at 2pm and before check out at 11am. No early check in can be arranged. Reception is also only open between 9am and 11pm. I was advised that there was early check in,so unfortunately I was stranded for a few hours but the staff were very accommodating and helpful by keeping my bags...

Reviewed 30 June 2015

Convenient location just three minutes walking from the metro. Prices were very affordable when we arrived (R$ 35 each for collective eight-bed room) and the staff members were helpful. The hostel offers a wide range of activities, but occasionally felt a bit like a party hostel. Breakfast was only average though, and beds/beddings were low quality. A very good experience...

Reviewed 26 June 2015

The hostel was great. Very friendly staff, solid breakfast in the morning from 8-10, the rooms are cleaned daily and the bathrooms at least that often. Mostly solid WiFi in the lobby. They are also very accommodating if you need to leave your bags at the hostel before the 2pm check in or after the 11am check out.

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
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 draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
