There was a great vibe in this hostel, aided in part by their cocktail hour. Upon checkin in received a cocktail voucher which was a great idea, as I stayed and drank more instead of finding a bar. There was decent wifi, exceptional breakfast (as long as you wake up before everything is gone), and the bathrooms were clean. Two... 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.
