Friendly hostel in Copacabana. Great location close to the beach, just don't walk alone in the area at night. Slept in the room next to the reception, got a little noisy but other than that the accomodation was decent. Most of the nights you could eat with everyone at the hostel which was cheap and a great way to meet... More

This is not the best hostel that I have been, but the location is just perfect! It's few steps from Siqueira Campos subway station, and close to a nice area of Copacabana. It's possible to go walking for Ipanema, and Copacabana has a great area for food & shopping. The hostel is not a big deal, but not bad neither.... More

staff were unfriendly, breakfast was poor and the place was crowded, noisy and a bit dirty. I have stayed at dozens of hostels and I have no doubt in my mind this was the worst I have experienced. I feel obligated to note the location is great (a few blocks from the beach), but other hostels I've stayed in in... More

This hostel is close to the metro and the beach. There is a lot of restuarants in the neighboorhood and it is safe to walk around. The hostel offers a variety of guided toura which is worth the money. They also help a lot with transfers and suggestions

This is a very social hostel. So if you want to party or you're a single traveller, you'll never end up alone in this hostel! Location is perfect, the beach is a 5min walk away and the subway is around the corner, so is the supermarket, flip flop store and many restaurants. Having a good sleep can be difficult, because...
