This was my first 'real' hostel experience, staying more than one night and I loved it! This place is UBER safe, and the staff are the most helpful people on the planet. When my bank account was skimmed and I had no money, one of the staff lent me money from his own wallet to buy food, and when the... More

I traveled through South America for three months, staying almost exclusively in hostels. This was definitely the best hostel I stayed at in the trip and it made Rio de Janeiro an absoute highlight for me. The hostel premises itself are good and clean. the air conditioning in the rooms and public areas was a great advantage because Rio is... More

no doubt the best part of my trip to south America. Pedro, Dominic and last but definitely not least filipe were the best hosts a hostel could ever have. The guys are young but so friendly and so respectful of other travellers, the hostel knows the best places to go, the best things to see and also the best places... More

Hostel is located in perfect spot in Copacabana, close to various buss stops and metro station. It's easy accessible from both Rio airports by bus 2018 (13,5 R$). Staff is really amazing, will help you with everything. Breakfast is really good as well. Me and my friend had great time staying there.

Amazing staff (thank you so much Dominique, Luisa, Phillipe, Charlotte and Matthias) - all were friendly, polite, fun and really helpful, providing great recommendations. Nothing seemed too much of a chore for them and they went out if their way to help. The location is perfect. Right near a supermarket and loads of restaurants and shops. The beach is only... More

The staff are the best asset of this hostel and the people that stay here. It has such a familial like atmosphere and everybody makes everybody feel welcome. The Wifi network is "Walk Family", and that is very much what it is. Really close to Copacabana beach and just a short cab, bus journey to Ipanema beach also. You can... More

I was a guest for 8 eight days last April and had an amazing time there. This was at the end of my 7 Months backpacking trip in South America (so I had a chance to stay at dozens of hostels). As the name suggests the hostel is really close to the beach (5 minutes walk). Aside from being clean,... More

I was traveling by myself so having friendly, helpful hostel staff was my main priority. Having read the previous reviews I decided on WOTB - and I was not disappointed! From the minute you walk in the door, all the staff know your name and make you feel extremely welcome. They gave me advice way beyond "book this tour", and... More
