Yes the rooms are 12 bunks a piece and the bathroom small but the atmosphere and family feel is amazing. Good space for communal activity and a decent kitchen, good location and lots of events going on. I really loved my stay and want to go back!

It's one of the best hostels in my years of traveling around the world. Location is great, close to restaurant, beach, metro station, and most importantly it's a safe area, except for the beach, which gets dangerous in the nights and also when it's cloudy and empty. It's especially clean, staff come to the rooms to clean up everyday and... More

My roommate and I are backpacking throughout Brazil and came upon this lovely hostel in Rio. The staff was amazing & the accommodations were nice. The location is great-- just a quick walk to the beach in Copacabana! We really enjoyed our stay here :)

If you're looking for a party hostel this is probably the place for you. If you enjoy sleeping sometimes, then this probably isn't. People are awake and loud at all hours of the night/morning and can be heard through the thin walls. The bunks are three beds high, and the lockers provided are small (can fit laptop). The doors to... More

When my friends and I arrived in Rio after a 17 hour flight we were tired, hungry, and a little bit brain-dead. Yet, the moment we arrived in Walk On The Beach we knew things would be fine. The friendly staff showed us to our rooms quickly and got us settled within minutes. Over the next few days we were... More

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.
