The location is really good, there is free wifi and the air conditioning in the bedrooms are amazing! The staff is really cute, they changed my room and after the room change (to 22) my stay was something else, it became WAY better. There aren't many outlets, but they will lend you adapters. Breaksfast is simple, but has everything you'd... More

we stayed three nights in a double room. The room was simple, but practical and clean. Maybe a bit too expensive, but, I guess that applies to many products and services in Rio. The staff were really great and helpful, and the location, in Leblon, is perfect.

We stayed at the Z.Bra Hostel during the world cup final. We wouldn't normally choose to stay in a hostel, but as it was the world cup final, the prices of all the hotels were extortionate! Even to stay here was a crazy price, but it was the most economic option for us. The hostel is really cool, the way... More

This is a great hostel, albeit a bit pricey but I think the accommodation, service and location make up for this. Leblon is a nice neighbourhood and the beach is very pretty. It is a lot quieter than Copacabana and even Ipanena which is on the same stretch of beach. The staff are friendly and very eager to help, which... More

I enjoyed my stay in z.bra. It has a fancy little lobby area with cool kitschy decor. The rooms however are very basic. I stayed in a double room first, and a dorm room afterwards. The hostel has a bar and we were allowed to order drinks on out them on our tab during our stay. It's located in leblon,... More

When I arrived at the hostel I found out they wanted to charge me higher than the advertised rate. After some negotiation this was dropped to a price still higher than the advertised rate. The price to stay changes throughout the week. So if you want to stay longer you won't pay The same price every day. The hostel staff... More

Upside: funky design, great location, friendly staff, party every night (it's perfectly fine too for the non-party mode travelers). Downside: bathroom not neat as the day advances, breakfast could be served in a better way (away from the flies), overpriced compared to other hostels worldwide. Yet, worth the visit if you're up to meeting new people and staying 2 blocks... More

Stayed here for a week. Located in "trendy" Leblon only 2 blocks to the beach and a few streets away from shopping thoroughfare. This place is class. The staff are amazingly helpful and friendly. Ended up going out on the piss with some of them a few times. There is a board in reception with daily excursions that you can... More

Great spot. Met a ton of good people there. Staff is great too. It's not going to be your cheapest option being it's in Leblon and all, but it's worth it. It's the right hostel for you if you'd like to interact with your fellow travelers and have a fun place to hangout. If you want a place that's super... More
