The bunk beds were so high you could hardly sleep on your side, and impossible to get down without waking everyone else up because it was so tricky. Air con in the room was poor and one of our lights didn't... More

I loved staying at CheLagarto Copacabana. The atmosphere was so lively. This is not a "calm" hostel, lots of energy which is great during Carnaval. First the location is great a few minutes walk to the beach. Also in a great location to get to other locations in Rio. Subway is close by and buses are convenient to catch from... More

Good hostel, very helpful and friendly staff speaking good English. Excellent location, a few minutes from Copacabana and a metro station. Clean rooms, nice bar at reception. Bathrooms, WiFi and breakfast could be improved.

This place has a great atmosphere. Walking distance to Copacabana beach. Train station is 2 blocks away. Buses stop outside. Only downside was rooms are small, wifi only worked in reception and I booked the previous night to arrival as I arrived at 7am. They wouldn't let me check in until 8am. I also did the city tour which was... More
