The staff are very friendly, helpful and professional. The dorms and bathrooms are clean and maintained. Its close to the beach, the wifi is great and breakfast is ok. The shared dorm with 6 people will cost you 60 Real. A minus is that you have to rent a towel for 5 Real (but I guess people have a habit... More

Having booked a month solo in Brazil from my native UK, Rio Rockers kick started my travels superbly. In particular I can't speak highly enough about the staff there, friendly and helpful, they really helped to set up my holiday experience. The location is ideal and the service was excellent value for money. By far the best place I stayed... More

Muito show este hostel! Estive com amigos no Rio para o evento do UFC e o local nos atendeu plenamente. Quartos limpos, bonitos e aconchegantes, localizado bem próximo à praia de Copacabana, preços acessíveis e competitivos, descontos para alberguistas e um staff muito gentil e prestativo que dá dicas de passeios e tours pela cidade-maravilhosa. Vale a pena. This hostel... More

One of the best hostels I've already stayed so far! The staff is the best, the location is awesome! and since it's a small hostel, it's easy to get to know the other guests and make friends from all over the world! I had an amazing time there and I'll definitely go back in my return to Rio de Janeiro!

This hostel is spot on for both groups and individuals looking for a base camp to explore Rio. We stayed at the Rio Rockers for a week over NYE and from the moment we arrived we were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome. The staff went out of their way to ensure we were shown around and had everything... More

This hostel was really nice, we - a group of 4 people - stayed for 5 nights. Every time we had a question, the staff was really very helpful. We even had some beer with them. When we needed a cab, the guy either called a safe cab for us or he came with us to the street, stopping a... More
