My friend and I booked this place, seeking a budget option in Copacabana, as there really are none. This place is cheap for the area, but with good reason. you will sleep on bunk beds in a room the size of a closet. the beds are very uncomfortable, and the pillows are made from plastic and offer zero head support...

Nice staff, but not very nice. The hostel comes off very dirty, and old (time for a makeover) but the staff is nice, with good english and a helpful mind. Close to the beach. Aweful breakfast, but restaurants are close.

Everything in that hostel was so bad that I don't even know where to start. Right, breakfast maybe:this place offers by far the worst breakfast that I've eaten in Brasil!! Just plain bread, with limited marmalade and coffee. Being used to plenty of fruit at other hostels I had to go and get some myself from the shop. Just when... More

Positive points: great staff and near beaches (good location). Bad points: very dirty, lot of humidity, ants in the room, smell bad in the room probably about humidity, plastic pillow, very simple breakfast during the week (it's better the w-end 'cause we have some grill-cheese ... wow ...). I was there with my mother, I'll never go there. I really... More

OK, it´s THE Copacabana, and the hostel is nearby. Staff is nice. But that`s it for the positive things... I have been to Africa, India and other countries, but I never slept on such poor plastic matresses and pillows. Crappy breakfast. Rooms without windows, so very humid and dirty. But most important: the owner is outrageously rude. We booked seven... More

Now, there have been some quite negative reviews about this place. Yes, there is an element of truth to them. The in-room facilities are quite old and worn, stairs creak and the mould could do with a bit of attention. Having said all of that, the people are lovely. The reception staff all speak very good English and are very... More
