This is actually not what you would consider like a party hostel but the vibe was amazing, travellers from south america, europe and many many australians trying to have a good holiday and time. I spent 6 nights with a couple of friends and we almost cried when we left out little house and family at el misti.

I stayed several days there. It is a good location. It had a nice place for my bike. It was ok in most ways, but in the end I did not feel cared about much at all by some of the staff. I had been extending my stay each day and one day they said there was a group coming... More

Ok, if you want to be close to copacabana and next to metro. But if you're looking for good vibes this is not it. Staff is friendly but they are not really part of the house, just working there if you know what I mean. Sometimes I felt I better don't ask them questions. Poor breakfast, Kitchen for guests to...

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.
