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

I was mortified when I saw the size of this room and could not believe they thought it was ok to put 6 bodies in there!!! If we hadn't already paid I would have walked out straight away. Triple bunk beds with tiny lockers big enough only for day packs which means big backpacks take up the little existing floor... More

I stayed here for one night in a 12-bed dorm after a mix-up with my pre-booked accommodation. The staff were super lovely and willing to give me a booking on the spot. This was my first ever hostel experience and I was really impressed. The hostel is in a great location not far from Copacabana beach and is very secure.... More

Most accommodating and super cool hosts and staff. They really know what their guests need and are hell bent on making sure their guests are comfortable and having the grandest time. Perfect location - it's situated in a quiet neighborhood, yet it's just a few blocks from the beach, public transportation, convenience stores, food stations, etc. It doesn't hurt that... More
