The place is intended for backpackers and people on a low budget, and for that target you get a good place compared to the price. We shared a 6 people room next to the front desk, there where noice and people where going and coming to the room at all hours. This is what to expect from a 6 person...

My friend and I booked this place, seeking a budget option in Copacabana, as there really are none. This place is cheap for the area, but with good reason. you will sleep on bunk beds in a room the size of a closet. the beds are very uncomfortable, and the pillows are made from plastic and offer zero head support...

OK, it´s THE Copacabana, and the hostel is nearby. Staff is nice. But that`s it for the positive things... I have been to Africa, India and other countries, but I never slept on such poor plastic matresses and pillows. Crappy breakfast. Rooms without windows, so very humid and dirty.

Now, there have been some quite negative reviews about this place. Yes, there is an element of truth to them. The in-room facilities are quite old and worn, stairs creak and the mould could do with a bit of attention. Having said all of that, the people are lovely.

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.
