Good hosts and good food for breakfast and dinner. Good to explain how to take the bus and travel across the street. the hostel is really well situated, next to all the buses to see everything in the city and not so far of the beat, it's easy to find his way.

The bar in the hostel is also amazing and has excellent capirinhas (capirinha with passion fruit was brilliant !). You will meet other people very easily to go out.

Great location, near everything, the staff were brilliant Gregory in particular in sorting out the boat party. No issue with languages as all the staff have a great grasp of multiple languages. The cleanliness was good, and the atmosphere was brilliant. I'd happily stay again.

The location is ideal and easy to locate in Copacabana. The facilities themselves are adequate, but everything is available. The staff are exceptionally friendly, and they speak a good level of English which helped matters. Gregory was a good guide for the social aspects, and was very welcoming.

The location is awesome. It is close to the Copacabana Beach and close to the metro(subway) station so it is convenient to go anywhere. The hostel is always packed with people from around the world so it is great for meeting new friends and go party together at night (It's Rio afterall). The bathrooms are not big but clean most...

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
