Bedbugs, I think thats enough said. The price didn't match my expectations(overpriced private room.) Checked out after 1hour... This is rubbish! I would advise you to stay away from this hostel. You can get a O.K hotel in Norway for almost the same price, REALLY disappointed and kind of offended.

We arrived to Carioca hostel at 20:00, the day before the match between Spain and Chile, we've booked a 6p private room. First of all we had to wait like an hour in the lobby with our bags, then they told us that hostel is oversold and they are going to give us an apartment close to the beach. So... More

My friends and I stayed at hostel Carioca during our time travelling Brasil for the World Cup. We did not have huge expectations staying at Hostel Carioca but definitely enjoyed our time there. Although the facilities were a little small, it made meeting everyone easier. I met a lot of great people at this hostel- from Russia, South Africa, Argentina,... More

The hostel is in a nice location just a couple of blocks from the beach. The dorms are quite large and the ones upstairs at least are quite bright and airy. The staff are friendly and do their best to make the place comfortable and welcoming (shout out to Pedro). The most serious drawback is with the bathroom facilities. There... More

I did really want to give this place a decent rating & review but I can only tell it how it is. We stayed here 31/05/13 & 01/06/13. My friend and I were in 8 bed dorm & the beds were that crammed in there that I could not get to my bed properly or even get my bag through... More

We were there just for one night, a weekend night. We didn't expect too much. It is a hostel, what can you want more that to be close to beach (Copacabana, 15 minutes, walking) , to have a place where you can sleep, to take a shower and charge phone or laptop. The staff were nice, helpful, the internet wifi... More

The rooms are decent are clean, as well as the bathrooms. Great location in copacabana, close to public transportation and the beach. The staff is nice and helpful. The breakfast is included in the price and is served on a nice terrace. Although I think the price is a bit too high (45 reais per night).

The hostel emailed me after the booking and said we had to go to a different place 2.5km away. It looked like a nice place but wasn't. The staff were rude, lazy and difficult. This was at Claudia's Hostel. They should have just rejected our booking and apologised but tried another way and failed. I think we might get a... More
