The hostel is good. Especially the staff I liked a lot. The attention was the best. I eminently like to thank pretty Paloma in the bar; Cecilia, Hernand and Matias in the reception; Nicolas in the kitchen and Adenilza for the breakfast. Also thank you to the ladies of the cleaning; you did a hard job very well.

Good location near Copacabana beach and not too far from Ipanema. The food is great and the beers are priced good compared to the area but hostel needs improvement on their bathrooms. They only turn on the AC at night so the days are pretty hot in the rooms. The staff is pretty cool especially Paloma and Cecilia.

best hostel in Rio! We stayed with 20 people from with an University Trip and the staff was always nice, friendly and helpful, the hostel is clean, cheap and cosy. The position is great, in 10 minutes you are on Copacabana beach and Ipanema is just around the corner with bus or taxi.

Actually, we accidentally bumped into Bamboo Rio Hostel after we left our former hostel, which was too dirty (no names!). It turned out to be the best choice we could have made! For 10 days, we inhabited Bamboo Rio Hostel with a group of 20 students from Holland and enjoyed it to the max. It's location in the Copacabana area,... More

Good and clean hostel. Facilities are good. Nice accommodation to relax or cook. Furthermore the staff speaks well english, not very common in hostels over here. Down point is the breakfast (not so good) and the rooms are small given the number of people in it. But in the end a very good hostel worth the price.
