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.

I also did the city tour which was... More

Stayed here on the 18th of September for four nights. It's close to the copacabana beach which has numerous restaurants for eating out.

The employees are courteous, polite and helpful. The atmosphere is bohemian and fun. The Hostel location is perfect to experience the best of Rio (plus copacabana beach, pubs, branches, restaurants, etc) Value for money is very affordable.Much better than the other Hostels and Hotel nearby. For that amount of money, is worth it! You may find a dirty bathroom. But... More
