Stayed here for 2 weeks, and didn't want to leave. Breakfast is awesome (watermelon and freshly baked bread and brownies every morning), just like the crew, who always seem to be contagiously cheerful. There is usually someone to hang out with at the bar in the hostel, but there's no noise if you want to catch an early night. They... More

My friends and I enjoyed our time in walk on the beach hostel. The staff at the reception were very helpful however the rooms and bathrooms were extremely small. The worst thing about this hostel is the sky scraper bunk beds. The bunks were unbelievably high (three storey) and had no bars as a safety precaution.

So I got to the hostel way before check in and had a really warm welcome. Until check in time, they let me use the hostel facilities and have breakfast. The breakfast is pretty standard, there's very good WiFi, comfortable beds and showers, but most important: good people. The bar upstairs has a really good atmosphere, people are all very... More

Took my Mom and then my husband here for dinner. The restaurant is right on the water. You can hear the waves at night. If you eat early the view is gorgeous. The restaurant is attached to a wonderful inn- Henderson Park Inn. The food was excellent. My favorite is the grilled lobster tail with saffron rice and grilled asparagus... More

Great place to stay in Copacabana, near everything you need, the staff is very nice and are always trying to help you in everything, good breakfast, the bar could be better but sometimes it depends on the people that stay in the hostel, I really liked this place, they give you a free caipirinha!, enjoy!

Went to Rio via bus and arrived way before check in. The area around the hostel is safe and a stone throw away from the nearest bus stop. The staff is the friendliest and most helpful I have ever experienced. The facilities is great for Brazil, the wifi is fast and true, the showers is hot, the bar is amazing... More

Amazing place. The hostel itself is nice and standart for Rio. Triple bunk beds with ac in the rooms, good breakfast and great WiFi. The staff however, is the real deal. All of them are super nice, super cool and local. They sat with all of the guests and made everyone feel like it's home. That way they helped the... More

I stayed here for four nights at the end of a 5 month trip and it's up there with my favourite hostels in South America. The staff there are fab - so friendly and helpful and Dominic and Louise really made me feel welcome. The rooms are basic as you'd expect but cleaned frequently. Bathrooms are kept really clean, split... More

Nice atmosphere and very nice people!!! a good place to go for a long period of time and on a adventure trip with friends or alone. I went alone to Rio and I must say this place made me make some very good friends.

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
